Beyonce covers the March issue of Vogue while giving candid interview about her life with husband Jay-Z and their 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.
The singer gushes that her daughter is everything she dreamed of and more.
“She’s my road dog. She’s my homey, my best friend,” Beyonce told. “I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I’ve always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it’s just…Life is so much more than…It’s not defined by any of this [fame or money].”
Trying to shut down the rumors that she had faked her pregnancy, Beyonce opens up about the birth Blue Ivy.
“My family and my closest people were there when I gave birth. Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life,” she told, adding, “I felt very maternal around eight months. And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain…We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”
Despite her and husband Jay-Z high profile lives, Beyonce wants to give her daughter the most normal upbringing possible.
“At some point it’s very important to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and live and do all the things that any child should be able to do…School visits and lemonade stands and all that stuff. It’s very important for me,” she insists.
So, will Blue Ivy become a big sister anytime soon?
“When I was younger, there were moments where I said, ‘I’m not going to have children.’ And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don’t know when.”
