There is nothing in my life that I could do that would equal the dedication and love that she shows as a mother. Nothing. I don't even try to. It's next level. Continuing to raise Quincy during this overly challenging year and giving birth mid-pandemic to our Alice, she continues to show above and beyond why she is the boss. I am grateful for you and love you so much Queen. Every day is Mother's Day for @tmcalps"".
