Los Angeles: Beyonce Knowles, who recently got a tattoo on her ring finger, has denied pregnancy rumours but says she is now getting closer to having kids.

"There are certain things I wanted to do before I had a child so I can really focus on being a mother. And I`m getting closer to that point, but I mean I still am in such a great place in my career that I feel like I want to wait until I`m really, really ready," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.

The singer wants people to look forward to the day she decides to have a child and not ignore it as another rumour about her pregnancy.

She said: "It`s difficult because one day I will decide to have a child and I want people to be excited and they`re gonna be like, okay, whatever, she`s been pregnant 25 times."
