At 13 months old babies are only just beginning to make sense of the world around them.
But Beyonce has revealed that her daughter Blue Ivy is 'already reading scratchcards'.
'She is hilarious and she is fire. Lord, am I going to have me a time,' Beyonce told chatshow host Oprah Winfrey.
'She's very smart. She's already reading flashcards. She's beautiful.'
Showering her little one with affection, the 31-year-old superstar cuddled up to her baby girl in a number of touching and tender shots from the family album.
With her long locks teased into stylish braids and showing off her natural beauty and radiant flawless skin by going make-up free, the Love On Top singer seemed to be in her absolute element as she made the most of precious family time with her daughter.
And with her adorable dark curly ringlets and big brown eyes, there is no denying the similarities between the super-cute tot and Beyoncé herself as a baby.
Offering a glimpse into the charmed life she and rap mogul husband Jay-Z share, the star opened up on the devastating miscarriage she suffered prior to falling pregnant with baby Blue Ivy.
Peppered with emotion, Beyonce touched on the topic briefly, saying, 'It was the saddest thing I've ever been through.
'My life is a journey. ... I had to go through my miscarriage, I believe I had to go through owning my company and managing myself ... ultimately your independence comes from knowing who you are and you being happy with yourself.'
The music megastar also talked to Oprah about the joys of becoming a mother for the first time.
She said: 'It's what I’m most proud of and it just made everything make sense to me. I couldn’t imagine my life if I did not have my daughter.
‘It's so much joy and I have my best friend. She is hilarious and she is fire. I didn't expect her to be fire but lord I’m a have me a time. She’s beautiful.
‘I definitely want another child but it was also important for me to do what I love and I love to perform. I love to make music so I wanted to have my daughter. Maybe after the next tour I’ll have another baby.’
Beyonce even credits Blue Ivy with helping her complete her long-awaited documentary, which offers an intimate behind-the-scenes look at her touching relationship with Jay-Z, as well as a look at the preparations for her performances at various music awards.
Explaining that the movie was three years in the works, she said: ‘My story did not feel complete and I didn't know why but ... after I gave birth I looked at my diaries and everything made sense.
‘There are so many connections in the film that I didn't realize until I gave birth. Everything just completely connected and I said now know who I am ... I wasn’t complete before my daughter.’
