Beyonce Knowles expects motherhood to be "difficult"
The `Halo` singer is expecting her first child with husband Jay-Z and although she can`t wait to welcome the new arrival to their family, Beyonce admitted she is worried about getting on her child`s nerves.
She told `20/20`: "It`s exciting! I know it`s gonna be difficult at times. I know that, like my mother, I`m gonna get on my child`s nerves [but] I`m just ready! I`m ready for the next chapter."
Beyonce, 30, also revealed she has tried to control her pregnancy cravings because she is determined not to pile on the pounds.
She added: "I`ve been really conscious [about food. I`ve been trying my best not to lose control.
"Because I`ve met so many people that say, `My second baby, my third baby, I`ve learned my lesson.` So I haven`t been going crazy. I know it`s important that I don`t lose myself."
Beyonce, 30, has previously spoken of how she feels it is the right time for her to have a baby now as she has achieved so much in her music career.
She said: "My husband and I have been together for 10 years - all of my 20s - and I just feel like it`s time and I`m very grateful that God has blessed me with the biggest gift any human being can have. I think because I`ve accomplished a lot of things for myself and I really know who I am, I didn`t rush into anything. If it`s any time, right now is the time, and I`m so happy."
