Beyoncé marked her B’Day in the most delightful manner. A source disclosed to PEOPLE that the 42-year-old superstar took a break from her Renaissance World Tour to relish a “lovely family getaway in celebration of her birthday.”

The Grammy-winning artist, who is wedded to JAY-Z, 53, and is the mother of daughter Blue Ivy, 11, as well as six-year-old twins, daughter Rumi and son Sir, with the rapper, chose French Polynesia as the destination for their vacation, staying at The Brando Resort.

“It was a much-needed respite for Beyoncé,” the source informed PEOPLE. “The tour has been demanding, and she needed a few days to recharge.”

The insider revealed that the family opted to “rent several private villas” during their stay, dedicating significant time to bonding. They elaborated, stating, “They relished the beach, shared family meals, and participated in various resort activities. It was a fantastic time for everyone.”

According to reports, the “Break My Soul” artist embarked on this family trip immediately after her birthday concert at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on September 4th. They made it back in time for her to resume the North American leg of her tour in Vancouver on September 11th. TMZ was the first to report on this news.

Queen Bey’s 42nd birthday festivities commenced on stage during the final performance of her three Renaissance shows in Los Angeles. At this remarkable show, Kendrick Lamar joined the renowned artist to deliver their collaboration, the live debut of “AMERICAN HAS A PROBLEM (REMIX).” Moreover, Diana Ross made a surprise appearance to serenade her with a rendition of “Happy Birthday.”

Captured by fans in footage, the “Formation” singer appeared both elated and deeply moved by the surprise visit from the 79-year-old music industry icon.

Beyoncé expressed her gratitude on stage, saying, “Thank you so much, you are so amazing. This is the legendary Diana Ross! There would be no me without you, and thank you so much for all of your sacrifice and your beauty and your grace. Thank you for opening doors for me. Thank you so much.”

She further conveyed her appreciation with a heartfelt tribute to Diana Ross on Instagram, writing, “Thank you to the incomparable Ms. Diana Ross. The 1 of 1, the number 1, the only one. Thank you from the depths of me, my Queen. 🐝.”

The celebration didn’t stop at the stage; it continued behind the scenes as well. The “CUFF IT” artist shared an Instagram carousel featuring her backstage festivities, including pictures with her parents, Mathew and Tina Knowles, her husband JAY-Z, and even snapshots of the disco ball-themed cake and balloons she was surprised with.
