Beyoncé broke down in tears during the final date of her Mrs. Carter World tour on Thursday.
The singer, who had performed 132 concerts since she first took the stage last April, became choked up when talking about baby Blue Ivy at her final show in Lisbon, Portugal.
“When I first started the tour, my baby was not even walking yet. I just want you to know that I am so lucky,” she gushed while the audience cheered.
With tears streaming down her face, the 32-year-old added: “I’m giving you all an ugly cry.”
After pulling herself together, she continued: “Thank you all again. Thank you for allowing me to have a career. And when I fall, you lift me up. When I’m hungry, you feed me. And I just want to give you my light. I dedicate this song to you.”
Beyoncé’s world tour, which had stops in Europe, North America, South America and Australia, was the highest-grossing female tour of 2013, earning more than $200 million worldwide.
Husband Jay-Z joined his wife onstage for a few select shows to perform a rendition of their smash hits, “Crazy In Love” and “Drunk in Love.” Following the final concert, the songstress posted a photo to her Tumblr page, which shows Jay embracing her backstage.
