February of 2012 is going to be a good month for Beyoncé Knowles and hubby Jay-Z! The Grammy award-winning singer finally confirmed that the couple will welcome their first child that month, and she can’t wait for all of the changes ahead.
“[Being pregnant] already has changed my life. My husband and I have been together for 10 years, all of my twenties,” Knowles, 30, tells Australia’s Sunday Night. “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.”
In her interview, the Destiny’s Child alum also talks about her decision to wait to start a family, saying:
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. If there’s any time, right now is the time, and I’m so happy.”
Before her pregnancy, Bey took a break from the spotlight, which had left her feeling “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,” adds the Single Ladies singer. “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.”
