Beyonce ‘Definitely’ Wants More Kids

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Beyonce is so happy about being a mom to daughter Blue Ivy Carter that she’s ready for more babies -- but she doesn’t have an exact number in mind.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Bey said, “I definitely want to have more. I don’t know how many. God knows I don’t know yet.” She did say, however, that she now has “such a full life,” and added, “I feel like now I know the reason I was born.”

The singer left Blue Ivy at home in the care of mom Tina and hubby Jay-Z to attend the annual Costume Institute Gala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday night.  She wore a sheer Givenchy Haute Couture gown that left little to the imagination, and looked amazing, despite telling ET, “I haven’t had much time in the gym [since the baby was born].”

Why is Beyonce in such great shape, then?  She noted that she’d been “rehearsing” for her upcoming concerts in Atlantic City at the end of the month, explaining, “I have a show coming up and it’s my first show in a year.”

Beyonce Wants to Teach Blue Ivy about Inner Beauty

Kristian Dowling/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Beyonce was recently named the World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People magazine, but it’s inner beauty that the singer values most.  The singer tells the magazine in a new chat, that she hopes her daughter, Blue Ivy, will feel the same way.

Beyonce says, “My biggest thing is to teach [Blue] not to focus on the aesthetic.  It’s really about who you are, and the human being, that makes you beautiful.”

Hubby Jay-Z, however, seems a bit worried their daughter will turn into a little diva. 

During an appearance Sunday on Oprah’s Master Class: Special Edition on OWN, Jay-Z talked about parenting, saying, “I imagine I’ll take things I learned from my mom and things I’ve learned from raising my nephews and apply that.”  Jay-Z then jokingly added, “Then at the end of the day, I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever.”

Beyonce and Jay-Z's Baby: New York Hospital Clears Up Rumors

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A New York hospital where Beyonce gave birth this weekend says that contrary to media reports, security for the couple didn't restrict other parents of newborns from access to their babies.

Lenox Hill Hospital, where Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed daughter Blue Ivy late Saturday night, was criticized after fellow patients at the hospital on Manhattan's Upper East Side expressed outrage at the tight security measures put in place for the megastars.

"People [were] just telling us where we cannot go and locking us out of the NICU," one patient told New York's Daily News of the situation at the hospital over the weekend.

In a statement, representatives from Lenox Hill told ABC News, "No security plan that we, or the Carter's security team, put in place would have prevented or delayed families from gaining access to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)."

The hospital in a statement refuted reports that the couple paid to rent a floor of the building to ensure their privacy.

One irate hospital guest told the Daily News the security team repeatedly stopped him from visiting the NICU.

"These are children with problems in intensive care and you're just going to take over the hospital like you own it? All I want is an apology," Neil Coulon of Brooklyn told the newspaper.

The Daily News had initially reported the $1.3 million figure to seal off a wing of the hospital to assure their privacy.

The celebrity couple issued a statement on their daughter's birth Monday, saying her "birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven." They added that she was "delivered naturally," weighed seven pounds, and described her arrival as "the best experience of both of our lives."
