Mathew, Tina and Bey spent time together earlier during the On The Run II tour when it stopped in their hometown of Houston -- but they kept that quiet, meaning no social media.

Mathew wanted to do something special for the last night, and this time Beyonce decided to share the cute family moment. Her parents divorced in 2011, but Mathew insists there's never been a rift with Tina.

They're both happily remarried now.
