Beyonce Knowles felt ‘instant connection’ with daughter Blue Ivy

Washington: Beyonce Knowles has admitted that she felt an “instant connection” with her daughter Blue Ivy, who was born earlier this month.

The ‘Halo’ hitmaker, who gave birth to her first child with husband Jay-Z earlier this month also admitted that the experience was overwhelming.

“Nothing can describe the feeling. You have the instant connection once you know your child is growing inside you, but when you hold it for the first time, the words can’t be found,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Britain’s Star magazine.

“It’s an old cliche that the thing expectant moms look forward to the most is holding their child in their arms for the first time, but it’s one of those clichés that is a real truth,” she said.

The 30-year-old singer also revealed that Jay-Z is equally excited about being a father and the two couldn’t wait to bring their daughter home.

“I am so excited. From the time I knew I was pregnant we have been parents. A child is the greatest gift you can receive, and we are so excited and blessed to be in this situation.

“We are all great, we are just glad to be going home and starting this new stage of our life. The hospital staff have all been so great, but we were ready to go home and show our beautiful daughter where she will be living,” she added.
