Beyonce Knowles is rethinking her plans to become a mother after babysitting her sister Solange's one-year-old son DANIEL and getting a taste for motherhood.

The DESTINY'S CHILD star found the job of looking after the tot recently a real challenge and it made her realise she isn't ready to become a parent right now.

She explains, "He's a good baby, and he's the cutest thing I've ever seen in my life. I love him to death.

"I got up at four in the morning, I did the (TV) show, and I thought, 'Since he's leaving tomorrow, I have to see him.' So the time I should have been asleep, I was watching him.

"I played, I had the stroller... and I was like, 'I don't know how my sister does it.'"

And because Knowles wants to be a proper mother to her kids she's going to wait for the right time.

She adds, "I think having a nanny is great to help, but I want to be there for my kids. My mom was there for me."
