Beyonce: 'I would like more children' - See video
Beyonce confirmed in a new interview that she wants more children and thinks that her daughter Blue Ivy "needs some company."
The singer and actress spoke in an interview with "Good Morning America" correspondent Amy Robach in London recently and opened up about expanding her family, lending her voice to the CGI animated movie "Epic," and the controversy surrounding her trip to Cuba. The interview aired on Monday, May 6, and video can be seen below.
"I would like more children," Beyonce said. "I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister. At some point, when it's supposed to happen."
"My biggest job in the world is to protect my daughter and I am very protective," she later said. "I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life."
Beyonce added, "I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love and now have a way bigger meaning [in life] and that's to be her mother."
The singer and husband Jay-Z welcomed their first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January 2012. Beyonce said she was pregnant with Blue Ivy when she recorded her voice for "Epic."
"You know, I was so honored when they asked for me to do this role," she said. "And I was actually pregnant at the time. And I thought, 'You know, by the time this comes out my daughter will understand it's my voice and what an incredible, cool point.'"
Beyonce plays Queen Tara in the film. The movie, which hits theaters on May 24, also features Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Colin Farrell, Christoph Waltz, Aziz Ansari and Steven Tyler.
The singer also touched on the controversial trip to Cuba that she and her husband took for their fifth wedding anniversary in April. The two were criticized for the trip in part because U.S. citizens are not allowed to travel to the country for tourism. Jay-Z responded to the controversy with a song called "Open Letter" in mid-April.
President Obama also addressed the controversy in an interview in April and said he did not know in advance that the couple would be taking the trip. The President said he believed the two went through "a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba."
When asked about the trip, Beyonce said, "You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children, visited some incredible entrepreneurs and I learned so much about so many people in the country and it was actually quite shocking."
Beyonce is currently in the middle of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour and has several upcoming shows in the United Kingdom as well as Italy, France and Germany. Check out her "Good Morning America" interview below.
