Beyonce Knowles may be focused on her career right now, but the singer admits she would like to have kids in the future. Beyonce - who is rumored to be marrying long-term boyfriend Jay-Z in November - says starting a family is a priority for her.
She told Elle Degeneres, "One day I hope to be married with children."
If the former Destiny's Child star - who turns 25 this week - does have a baby, she says she intends to keep working.
"I don't want to retire at thirty, I want to relax... I still want to make albums and movies, but at a slower pace," she explained.
Meanwhile, Beyonce has warned fans not to try her extreme diet. The singer had to drop two dress sizes for her role in the new movie "Dreamgirls" and survived on a diet of just maple syrup, lemon juice and water for weeks to shift the weight.
"It was necessary to lose weight really fast because we shot my character Deena at 16 and at 36, two weeks apart. But it's not for everyone," she said.
Beyonce recently admitted the best thing about the diet was coming off it and getting her curves back.
"The funniest part was putting the weight back on and eating doughnuts and all the other things. I've got my body back," she said.
