Beyonce opens up about plans for a second child

While some women might want to slow down after their first pregnancy and adjust to new life as a mother, Beyonce Knowles isn't one of them. In a recent taping of "Oprah's Next Chapter" with Oprah Winfrey, the songstress openly said that she has plans in the making for additional children in the future, according to Singer's Room, an R&B music news site.

"I definitely want another child but it was also important for me to do what I love," Beyonce told Oprah. "I love to perform. I love to make music. I wanted to have my daughter and maybe after this next tour, I'll have another baby."

The singer also said that she intends to take her baby on the road with her. Because she'll only be performing for about two hours a day, Beyonce sees ample opportunity to bond with Blue Ivy. There's no word yet on whether her husband and rapper Jay-Z will be traveling with her when her world tour kicks off this spring.

Planning for a second child
While an affluent singer such as Beyonce may be able to afford amenities such as childcare while she works her full-time job, this isn't always a possibility for the everyday mom. That being said, there's plenty to consider before you decide to take on pregnancy symptoms again and bring a second child into the world.

First, it's crucial to ensure you have the financial means to take care of both children. Next, you'll also need to determine if you can handle the responsibilities of two kids - this means making sure you give each of them individual attention and love every day.
