beyonce-new-interview.jpgBeyonce Knowles gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy just ten days ago, and the Grammy winner is already gushing about her baby girl in a new interview with UK Star magazine. Of course, she's also speaking out about rumors that beefed up security at Lenox Hill Hospital inconvenienced other patients in the maternity ward.

After a handful of parents complained that they were prevented from seeing their newborn babies due to the security measures requested by Beyonce and Jay-Z, the singer insists that it was routine ... for her, anyway! “Security was very tight, not for the sake of it,” she said. “It was for the security of our daughter."

Switching the subject back to her, Beyonce described the moment she first held Blue in her arms, telling the mag, "The words can’t be found. It’s an old cliche that the thing expectant moms look forward to most is holding their child in their arms for the first time. But it’s one of those cliches that is a real truth.”

So is Jay-Z really ready to be put on daddy duty? “He will change diapers, of course he will,” Beyonce said. “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 little things for your child ... He is a very protective and loyal guy by nature. He is a very protective husband, and since we have found out I was pregnant I have seen the protective father in him." Hopefully he feels the same way about the diapers though!
