Pregnant LeToya Luckett Says Beyoncé ‘Went Into Straight Mommy Mode’ When They Caught Up Backstage

LeToya Luckett’s viral photo with Beyoncé had fans buzzing online back in September and now the “Greenleaf” actress is dishing on what the former group members discussed during their reunion.

Luckett is pregnant with her first child and she had fans going wild in September when she shared a photo of herself with her Destiny’s Child bandmate backstage during a Texas stop for Bey’s the On The Run II Tour with husband Jay-Z.



“Beautiful !!!!!!!🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌💖💖💖💖”


“I Love this. Bring it back. Destiny’s child.”

“Remember Girls Thyme at the Wortham! I do, as Proline Corporation was employer and sponsored the event! Glad to see you guys RIDE!”

“Sissies!!! Where it all began! H-town, h-town!!! 713!!!🤘🏾💞😍”

The meeting didn’t include just a photo-op for the ‘gram, either. Luckett, who is expecting a baby girl with husband Tommicus Walker, also got mommy questions from Queen Bey.

“That was such an awesome moment,” the original Destiny’s Child member told Essence Thursday, Oct. 18. “There was so much joy in that room. She was … she went into straight mommy mode as far like ‘Oh my god. What’s she doing? Is she doing this, is she doing that?’ And I was showing them my sonogram pictures and everything. She was just so excited. We’re both very, very happy, and you could feel the love in the room. There wasn’t a lot of people in the room. It felt like it was just us, chatting it up.”

Luckett is set to explore motherhood in front of TV cameras as part of the cast of T.I. and Tiny Harris’ re-vamped reality show, “T.I & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle,” for VH1. On Oct. 22, Luckett and Walker will make their debut on the series, which in addition to the Harrises, will also feature Grammy-winner Monica and Toya Wright. Luckett said all the ladies have helped her sort through impending motherhood.

“Monica, Toya and Tiny, they told me everything that I needed to use,” Luckett explained. “Everything … the right bottles, the right this, the right that, and Monica has been one that has most of the old school advice that still works for her, and I really like that. She’s like girl, ‘All my kids stayed in four to six weeks, didn’t go outside, didn’t see the light of day because I wanted to bond with them and connect with them. And I would only leave to go to my doctor’s appointments because you really need that time with the baby.’”
