Beyonce is currently running the world on her Mrs. Carter Show world tour, but the singer revealed in an exclusive interview with ABC’s Amy Robach on the London leg of her tour that she wouldn't mind slowing down again to have more children.
"I would like more children,” she said during the interview, which aired on Monday's Good Morning America. "I think my daughter needs some company." She and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy, last year.
Queen Bey isn't slowing down yet. She recently took on the role of Queen Tara in the upcoming animated film, Epic, out May 24. It tells the story of a teenage girl who teams up with a band of warriors to save their secret universe. Beyonce adds her voice to those of Aziz Ansari, Amanda Seyfried, Pitbull and Steven Tyler, and contributes an original song called "Rise Up."
Beyonce revealed she took the role because of her 1-year-old daughter. “You know, I was so honored when they asked for me to do this role. And I was actually pregnant at the time," says Beyonce. "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 also said she became emotional during one scene that led her to imagine what it would be like to see her daughter for the first time. “I was crying when I...did the voiceover. And it was the first thing I did after giving birth. ...And literally there were tears falling.”
Beyonce also admitted how shocked she was at the outcry over her recent trip to Cuba. Along with her husband, the singer visited to the communist Caribbean nation early last month for their fifth wedding anniversary. The couple quickly came under fire from some lawmakers who questioned whether they had the proper permits to visit. The U.S. government prohibits travel to Cuba except under certain strict conditions.
“You know, it was such a beautiful trip. I met some incredible children. I visited some incredible entrepreneurs. And it was really, it was really educational for me. I learned so much about so many people and the country, and it was actually quite shocking,” Beyonce said of the fallout.
