Beyonce and Jay-Z are raising a prodigy. To promote her HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, the "End of Time" singer appeared on the Feb. 16 episode of Oprah's Next Chapter and opened up about life with her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

"She is hilarious and she is fire. Lord, am I going to have me a time!" the R&B diva said of her 13-month-old little girl with her 43-year-old husband. "She's very smart. She's already reading flashcards. She's beautiful."

When host Oprah Winfrey asked the 17-time Grammy winner when she plans to give Blue Ivy a sibling, Beyonce smiled wide. "I definitely want to have another child. But it's also important for me to do what I love. I love to make music. I wanted to see after I had my daughter, if I was still as passionate about performing," she answered. "Maybe after this next tour I'll have another."

During the interview, Beyonce also opened up about the miscarriage she suffered before conceiving Blue Ivy. "I felt like there are so many couples that go through that and it was a big part of my story. It was one of the hardest things I've been through. It was one of the reasons I did not reveal that I was pregnant the second time," the songstress admitted. "You don't know what's going to happen. It was hard."
