"I definitely want to have a child, but I know from my nephew it's a lot," Beyonce told Allure magazine in its February issue when asked about the couple's family plans.
Beyonce, who along with Jay-Z was recently named one half of Forbes' Hollywood's Top-Earning Couple (for a second straight year!), said the expansion of their family would happen after she has some well-deserved down time.
"I hope that those things will just happen naturally," she explained. "I still haven't had time to relax."
And when it comes to staying in shape, the singer says she plans on always keeping her signature curvy figure.
"I always say, 'I don't want to lose my curves.' I like firm curves," the 28-year-old told the mag.
"You can never do enough squats, you can never do enough sit-ups," Beyonce, who sticks to a diet of fish, vegetables and salad while touring, said. "I like for women to look feminine."
The singer might have a strict diet – but she'll never be able to escape being "Bootylicious"
The term, which shares the same name as Destiny's Child hit song from last decade, is now included in the Oxford English Dictionary – a feat out of which Beyonce gets quite a kick.
"I still can't believe it! It's hilarious," she said. "I actually wish it was another word that I created. I wish it didn't have 'booty' in it."
