Mathew Knowles, the father of music stars Beyoncé and Solange, is opening up about what it's like to raise children in the spotlight.

On Tuesday (April 11), Knowles shared a never-before-seen childhood photo of Beyoncé and Solange, giving a peek into how he nurtured his kids' passions from a young age, per People.

"I believe our young people are often more intuitive than adults in many areas. Those early passions many children possess should be nurtured and supported," Knowles wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the duo posing together as kids.

"When Beyoncé and Solange showed an interest in music at a very young age, [Tina Knowles-Lawson] and I (who were already corporate professionals and entrepreneurs) didn't attempt to downplay their passions," he continued. "Rather, we encouraged them, we guided them, we supported them."

Knowles reflected on serving as a manager for both of his kids, saying he and ex-wife Tina Knowles-Lawson "were happy with whatever career path [the girls] chose" as long as they "took it seriously and strived to be the best they could."

"The world needs more people who are connected to their inner ambitions and passions and are surrounded by those who nurture them," Knowles added. "It'll make the world a better place for us all."
