Beyoncé: "Giving birth made me realise the power of being a woman"

Beyoncé has revealed that becoming a mother reawakened a sense of self-importance in her life.

The singer gave birth to her first child Blue Ivy Carter in January 2012 and it seems the introduction of a new life into her family has given her personality a chance to flourish.

Speaking to GQ, the '4' star said that she is more confident in her personality and also in being sensual with husband Jay-Z. She said:

"Giving birth made me realise the power of being a woman. have so much more substance in my life. And expressing that excitement and that sensuality and the connection I have with my husband - I'm a lot more comfortable with that now. I actually feel like my child introduced me to myself."

Talking further about her relationship with Jay-Z, Beyoncé added:

"I was independent before I met my husband, and we have such a natural chemistry and a genuine relationship, and it's based on the things that relationships are supposed to be based on. I've seen, growing up, when a woman or a man in a relationship - it doesn't matter which one - doesn't feel confident, they feel a bit trapped. Your self-worth is determined by you. You don't have to depend on someone telling you who you are."
