London: Singer Beyonce Knowles, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, says she isn`t prepared to be a mother yet and has a lot to achieve before she conceives.

"Nothing now but there will be one day. One of the reasons I haven`t had a child yet is because there are certain things I want to do before I focus on being a mother. I`m not there yet but I`m close," Knowles has been quoted as saying by contactmusic.com.

The 29-year-old says she is lucky that god chose to gave her singing prowess.

"Sometimes it`s overwhelming. Why did god give me my talent, my gift, my family. But I know you`re not supposed to question god. Only god knows. And I don`t take it for granted," she added.
