She gave a massive 15-minute performance to close out the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, and Beyoncé Knowles gave viewers one of the most beautiful displays of family love as she accepted the Video Vanguard Award from her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy.

As she finished up her routine, the “Crazy in Love” songstress caught her breath while her “H.O.V.A” rapper hubby declared, “And the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award and the greatest living entertainer, Beyoncé.”

Clearly touched by the moment, Bey took a few deep breaths while holding her coveted moonman and smiling from ear to ear.

Knowles explained, “I’m so full. I have nothing to say but I feel so much gratitude. I thank God for this moment. Boo boo I love you, my beloved I love you.”
