Beyonce is incredibly proud of her daughter. Blue Ivy might only be 13 months old, but according to her mother, she is already very advanced for her age.

"It's so much joy and I have my best friend. She is hilarious and she is fire. I didn't expect her to be fire but lord I'm a have me a time," the Queen Bey tells Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Next Chapter. "She's very smart. She's already reading flashcards. She's beautiful."

The proud mother makes it no secret that Blue Ivy is her "homey," but that doesn't mean she's not ready to share her love. Beyonce is already talking about having another child with husband Jay-Z, and she seems like she's pretty serious about it.

"I definitely want to have another child. But it's also important for me to do what I love. I love to make music. I wanted to see after I had my daughter, if I was still as passionate about performing," she says. "Maybe after this next tour I'll have another."

Beyonce has revealed in the past that she suffered a miscarriage the first time she got pregnant, and she tells Oprah that finally giving birth helped her realize what story she wanted to tell in her documentary, "Life Is But A Dream."

"My story did not feel complete and I didn't know why but ... after I gave birth I looked at my diaries and everything made sense," she says. "There are so many connections in the film that I didn't realize until I gave birth. Everything just completely connected and I said now know who I am. ... I wasn't complete before my daughter."
