Beyonce Knowles has spoken for the first time since welcoming baby Blue Ivy.
The new mum told Star magazine it was a particularly emotional moment when she first held her daughter in her arms.
"Nothing can describe the feeling," said the 31-year-old.
"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 Bootylicious diva also said her husband Jay-Z would be a hands-on dad.
"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."
