Beyonce's "Life Is But A Dream" Documentary on HBO

While promoting her HBO documentary, Life Is But a DreamBeyoncé appeared on the February 16 episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter and opened up about family life with husband Jay-Z and their 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.

“It’s so much joy and I have my best friend,” the Grammy Award-winning singer gushed of motherhood. “She is hilarious and she is fire. Lord, am I going to have me a time! She’s very smart. She’s already reading flashcards. She’s beautiful.”

The R&B superstar went on to say that motherhood has been transformative.

“My daughter introduced me to myself,” she said. “My story did not feel complete and I didn’t know why, but after I gave birth I looked at my diaries and everything made sense.” She added, “There are so many connections in the film that I didn’t realize until I gave birth. Everything just completely connected and I said now I know who I am… I wasn’t complete before my daughter.”

The 17-time Grammy winner also opened up about the miscarriage she suffered before welcoming Blue Ivy.

“I felt like there are so many couples that go through that and it was a big part of my story,” she shared. “It was one of the hardest things I’ve been through. It was one of the reasons I did not reveal that I was pregnant the second time,” the songstress admitted. “You don’t know what’s going to happen. It was hard.”

I think its a beautiful way to feel about motherhood, I dont feel like my children completed me but they sure made my life more fulfilling and I could not imagine life without them or my grandchildren

I think being a mother opened up a new chapter of my life and made me look at things differently.

No I don't think it made me complete, but I think its a part of who I am.

I agree. Except the grandkid part. that hopefully won't happen for another 15 years minimum (and that's for my 5 year old, not 1 year old. LOL)
