Nicki Minaj may have had Meek Mill as her date at the 2015 BET Awards on Sunday, but she brought her mom onstage to accept her big award.

The 32-year-old rapper was joined onstage by her look-alike mom when she won the award for best female hip-hop artist, beating out Iggy Azalea, Azaelia Banks, and more.

"I always talk about my mommy and this is the first time the world is going to see her," Minaj said as she accepted her award, introducing viewers to her mom, Carol.

"I love you so much," she added.



Of course, this isn't really the first time the world has been introduced to Minaj's mom. Carol had previously opened up to Essence about how she raised her award-winning daughter.

"I always tell my children to persevere," she said. "If they keep pressing toward what they want, it's going to happen. A superstar needs to be in touch with their gifts. There's a certain measure of humility that they must keep as they go forward."
