Beyoncé Knowles: Blue Ivy needs company

Beyoncé Knowles

Beyoncé Knowles says she would like more children, as daughter Blue Ivy “needs some company”.

The singer and her rapper husband Jay-Z welcomed their first child last January.

Beyoncé wants to expand her brood to give baby Blue Ivy “some company”.

"I would like more children," the star revealed in an interview with ABC News on the London leg of her world tour. "I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister [to Solange]."

The star also discussed the shifting priorities in her life since becoming a mother.

She is juggling parenthood with touring commitments along with promoting her new role in animated fantasy drama film Epic.

"I am very protective," she said of her relationship with Blue Ivy. "I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life. In the back of my mind, she's my priority.

“And life is completely different now. So I feel really, really just lucky that I can still do what I love, and now have a way bigger meaning. And that's to be her mother."

Beyoncé, 31, also discussed the controversy over her recent fifth wedding anniversary trip to Cuba with Jay-Z.

She found the reaction to their holiday “quite shocking”.

Last month, the couple came under scrutiny over whether they had the proper permits to visit the country. The US Government prohibits travel to the Caribbean nation except under strict conditions.

"You know, it was such a beautiful trip," Beyoncé recalled. "I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country, and it was actually quite shocking."
