During a recent visit to Good Morning NYC, Beyoncé's and Solange's mom, Tina Knowles, talked about her affordable fashion line for the over-50 crowd, which will be available at Wal-Mart stores nationwide.

"Miss Tina is a line born from me needing to find clothes," she said. "After 50, you start wanting a little room in the shoulders and just clothes that really fit well. I joke all the time that I am a grandmother, but I don't want to look like a grandmother."

Knowles also talked about what she plans to do for Mother's Day this weekend. The grandmother to Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy, and Solange's 7-year-old son, Juelz, said the family will be celebrating Bey's first Mother's Day.

"We'll all be together and it'll be Beyoncé's first Mother's Day so we're very excited about that," she said. "I hope to be cooking. I like cooking. Definitely some creole cuisine, gumbo, soul food. That's my specialty."
