  • 'I always said I’d have a baby at 30' Bey revealed in a new interview

    Broody Beyoncé has hinted we could soon be hearing the pitter patter of tiny Knowles feet, after admitting to Piers Morgan: ‘I always said I’d have a baby at 30.’


    Bey was appearing on Piers’ US CNN show when she made the admission, during a chat about her upcoming 30th birthday.

    ‘I can’t wait, because 29 is very strange,’ Beyoncé told the Brit chat show host about reaching the milestone age.

    ‘You’re still in your 20s but you feel like you’re supposed to be 30. I feel like a woman. I feel like I’m very aware of who I am. I feel great and I feel like 30 is the ideal age, because you’re mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and your standards, and not be afraid, too polite – but you’re young enough to be a young woman. I’m so looking forward to it.’

    When Piers described Beyoncé as sounding ‘mature, sensible and rational’ she joked he was ‘trying to say that I need to have a baby.’

    ‘I always said I’d have a baby at 30,’ she added. ‘I’m 29. But I also said I was going to retire at 30. I’m not retiring.’

    Asked if a new arrival could be on the way soon, the singer retorted: ‘Only God knows, only God knows.’

    Bey also spoke of how she and hubby Jay-Z – who are rarely spotted out and about together – have made a conscious decision to keep their relationship out of the spotlight.

    ‘Jay and I have kind of made a decision that we want to be known for our music and not our relationships or scandals,’ she said, simply adding: ‘He is amazing,’

    Last night Jay took up a front row seat alongside pal Gwyneth Paltrow to watch Beyoncé perform a secret gig at Shepherds Bush Empire.
