“Gwyneth has been such a great support,” the ‘Single Ladies’ singer tells New! magazine. “Her and Chris [Martin] are both great parents. And they have really beautiful kids….. She makes sure that her children are the priority in her life, but at the same time manages to have a really successful career.”
Beyonce, who is married to music mogul Jay-Z, says she hopes to follow Gwyneth’s great example once her own little one arrives.
“I have always said I will work my career around my children and not the other way around,” Bey says.
As for Gwyneth, who has kids Apple, 7, and Moses, 5, with her Coldplay hubby, she recently mused that motherhood will likely have a profound influence on Beyonce, saying, “I think motherhood is the biggest blessing of all time and it gives your life real meaning. It’s always interesting when you’re a woman with success and you’ve achieved a lot, and then you have a baby and you realize everything you thought was an achievement really is nothing until you have a kid. I think that that will be her experience, and it’s wonderful to see her so happy right now, and so looking forward to the experience. I’m very happy for them.”
