A few weeks after tying the knot, Jay-Z's mother, Gloria Carter, and her wife Roxanne Wiltshire made their red carpet debut as newlyweds, People reports.

On Friday, the couple made their red carpet appearance for the Shawn Carter Foundation's 20th Anniversary Black Tie Gala, which took place at Pier Sixty in New York City.

Appearing alongside Jay-Z was a star-studded guest list that included DJ Khaled, Tinashe, Rudy Gay, Lil Uzi Vert, Meek Mill, Robert Kraft, Babyface, Regina Hall, Yo Gotti, Angela Simmons, Miguel, Tinashe, Corey Gamble, Tamika Mallory, Zane Lowe, Ebro Darden, and others.

Gloria Carter and her son co-founded the Shawn Carter Foundation in 2003 with the goal of providing "students with college scholarships and tours to historically black colleges and universities, study abroad opportunities, wealth building programs, and more for underserved youth and families from disenfranchised communities," a press release states.

Friday night's gala raised an impressive $20 million for the foundation with $10 million coming from Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez.

As previously reported, Gloria and Roxanne exchanged vows on July 2 in New York City. Gloria's daughter-in-law Beyoncé, as well as Kelly Rowland, Tina Knowles-Lawson, Tyler Perry, and Robin Roberts were among those who attended the wedding in Tribeca.

The wedding arrives six years after Hov most acknowledged his mother coming out to him on wax. Jay spoke about it on "Smile," a song off his 2017 album 4:44 that featured Gloria.

"Mama had four kids, but she's a lesbian/Had to pretend so long that she's a thespian/Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate/Society shame and the pain was too much to take," he rapped on the track. "Cried tears of joy when you fell in love/Don't matter to me if it's a him or her/I just wanna see you smile through all the hate/Marie Antoinette, baby, let 'em eat cake."
