Beyonce has spoken for the first time since giving birth, revealing husband Jay-Z will be on hand to change their daughter’s nappies.
The Crazy In Love singer, 30, gave birth to the couple’s first child Blue Ivy on January 7 at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
According to UK Star magazine, she also defended their incredibly tight hospital security, saying it was necessary for the safety of their newborn.
Beyonce said: ‘Nothing can describe the feeling. You have the instant connection once you know your child is growing inside you, but when you hold it for the first time, the words can’t be found.’
The former Destiny’s Child star, who revealed Kelly Rowland cannot wait to babysit, also confirmed that Jay-Z was in the room during the birth.
She said: ‘He would not have missed it for anything. He is a very protective and loyal guy by nature. He is a very protective husband, and since we found out I was pregnant I have seen the protective father in him.
He is not only an inspirational artist, he is an inspirational husband. I know the next step on his journey is going to be being an inspirational father.’
And the Empire State Of Mind star won’t be able to avoid the dirty work either, with Beyonce determined he will be a ‘hands-on’ father.
‘He will change diapers, of course he will. He is going to be a very hands-on father. He has already said publicly that providing isn’t love.
‘Love is being there. Love is doing the little things for your child.’
The RnB pop princess also defended the security, saying: ‘Everybody who we wanted to see her, saw her.
‘Security was very tight, but not just for the sake of it, it was for the security of our daughter’.
However Neil Coulon, 39, of Brooklyn may tell a different story.
He has claimed the stress of his wife Rosalyn delivering two premature girls was trebled when Beyonce’s bodyguards allegedly barred him from the sixth-floor neonatal intensive care unit.
But Beyonce says she will always ‘put her children first’, adding: ‘The key for me is to work everything around your children and not the other way.’
She also stressed life will be ‘normal’ for Blue as they are ‘a normal, loving family’ who just happen to be in the public eye.
‘At home, she’ll be part of a normal, loving family with a loving mom, a loving dad, a loving aunt and loving grandparents, just like any other kid.’
