Beyonce is convinced her husband Jay-Z will be a "hands-on" father to their baby daughter Blue as he wants to do more than just "provide" for his family.
The superstar couple became first-time parents earlier this month (Jan12) when the singer gave birth to their little girl at a hospital in New York.
Beyonce has now spoken out about the new arrival, revealing her partner was by her side for the birth and will be an "inspirational" father.
According to Britain's Star magazine, she says, "He would not have missed it (the birth) for anything. He is a very protective and loyal guy by nature. He is a very protective husband, and since we found out I was pregnant I have seen the protective father in him. He is not only an inspirational artist, he is an inspirational husband. I know the next step on his journey is going to be being an inspirational father."
The Irreplaceable hitmaker also admits her husband wants to be fully involved in the day-to-day duties as they raise their daughter.
She adds, "He will change diapers, of course he will. He is going to be a very hands-on father. He has already said publicly that providing isn't love. Love is being there. Love is doing the little things for your child."
