Beyonce, Solange's dad: 'I'm a proud, proud father'

Beyonce leads the Grammys with nine nominations, including Album of the Year. Little sis Solange is also nominated. Back in Houston, their dad couldn't be prouder.

HOUSTON - Beyonce leads the pack with nine Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year. Little sis Solange is also nominated and their dad, Mathew Knowles is one proud Papa.

Knowles recently gave us a tour of his office complex called World Music and showed off one of his most prized possessions: One of the Grammys Beyonce won with the group Destiny’s Child, who Knowles used to manage.

“"It’s probably the first and only time you will hold a Grammy,” he told KHOU 11 News anchor Ron Trevino.

The Grammy sits in a case full of awards but Knowles said it was the ultimate.

"There's not an award in here that equates to what a Grammy means.”

Now he’ll be in the audience at the Grammys cheering on both daughters. Beyonce is expected to perform.

"Well, I tell you, it’s a real blessing. I’m a proud, proud father,” Knowles said. “And you know, it’s never been done before in the music industry to have two sisters have number one albums."

Knowles is still a force in the music industry as a talent manager. He’s currently busy developing a Houston group called Blush.

But he made time to visit Beyonce when he got the news she’s pregnant with twins.

And he revealed a little family secret.

“Beyonce slips into Houston and goes to a studio that I won’t name and makes her albums,” Knowles said.

You can watch the Grammys Sunday at 7 p.m. on KHOU 11.
