Beyonce's accomplishments are widespread and very, very impressive, and yet none of that trumps her most proud moment -- becoming a mom.
In an interview with Garage magazine, which Beyonce graces the cover of, the singer gushed about her career and motherhood, and how the two don't even compare.
"Out of everything I've accomplished, my proudest moment, hands-down, was when I gave birth to my daughter, Blue," she said.
Beyonce and Jay Z tied the knot in 2008 and welcomed their baby girl in January 2012. But who does she credit for making her a good parent? Her own mother of course.
The 34-year-old said her mom, Tina Knowles, has helped her become the woman and mother she is today.
"My biggest hero is and always will be my mother. She has taught me about caring for others, working hard and working smart," she told the magazine.
"Everything I know about being a mother comes from the examples she has shown. My mother has instilled confidence in my sister and me and taught us to always be grateful."
The confident woman encourages her fans to better themselves as female leaders with the guidance of some of the world's best examples.
"I would love for my younger fans to read 'What Will It Take To Make a Woman President?' by Marianne Schnall. It's a collection of interviews and essays by great women, including Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, and Melissa Etheridge. They will inspire you to become a better leader."
While focusing on being a better leader, Bey acknowledges that she herself is a boss (as if we didn't already know that).
"Over time, I have learned to focus on the things I want to focus on in the time frame that I set," she explained about how grateful she is to have control of her career.
"I no longer have to work based on someone else's expectations or pressure. I put enough pressure on myself! I love being 100 percent involved with all my projects, and now I'm fortunate enough to do that."
Beyonce recently dropped the politically-implied song and video "Formation," which she performed during an epic performance at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show with headliner Coldplay and Bruno Mars.
