Beyonce recently announced she’s due in February, but admitted in the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar that she needed to focus on herself first before thinking about a baby.

“It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother,” she says. “Now God has blessed us with the ultimate.”

Although Beyonce recognizes she needed much work before she could have a child, she also tells Harper’s Bazaar that she needed to take her time on building her relationship with hubby Jay-Z as well.

“We have been together since I was 20 years old. We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married. But, like anything great and successful in your life, marriage takes hard work and sacrifice. It has to be something both you and your husband deeply want.”

Now that Queen Bey has built her marriage and relationship up and she’s worked on herself she’s developed a certain kind of inner strength that’s simply amazing.

“I am finally at the stage in my life where I am not concerned with other people’s opinions about my life decisions. It is so liberating to really know what I want, what truly makes me happy.”

You go Beyonce! Be happy! Live your life!
