Beyonce Knowles: I'm Due in February!
2012 is going to be a great year for
Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z.
The couple will welcome their first child in
February, the 30-year-old singer
announced on Australia's Sunday Night.
"[Being pregnant] already has changed my
life. My husband and I have been together
for 10 years, all of my twenties," she said.
"I just feel like it's time and I'm very
grateful that God has blessed me with the
biggest gift any human can have."
Married since 2008, Knowles said she and
Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter) made a
conscious decision to hold off on starting a
"I think because I've accomplished a lot of
things for myself and I really know who I
am, I didn't rush into anything," she
explained. "If there's any time, right now is
the time, and I'm so happy."
Before she became pregnant, Knowles took
a break from the spotlight to re-examine
her life. "It was a bit overwhelming," she
said. "I was a bit numb and kind of lost."
"I never even realized I needed a year off. I
never realized I don't know how to take a
year off," she added. "I've been managed
by my father for a long time, and it's been
a real change being separated from him. It
was scary, but it empowered me."
