The 'Run The World (Girls)' singer says she is getting excited about becoming a mother next year.

Beyonce says she "can't wait" until the day she and husband Jay-Z are able to hold their new baby.

The 'Love On Top' singer is currently expecting her first child and says they are both looking forward to meeting the new arrival sometime in early 2012.

"I guess it's kind of cliché, but I just can't wait to hold my baby in my arms," Beyonce told New! Magazine.

Beyonce also spoke about her plans for the future, and revealed she plans to have more children at some point over the next ten years.

"I have always said that I want to have all my children by the time I am 40," she revealed. "So there's still a lot of time yet.

"There is an attraction for sure about having a large family, but we will just have to see what we are blessed with."

The 'Countdown' singer's announcement at the MTV Video Music Awards in September of her pregnancy with Jay-Z was recently named the biggest Twitter moment of 2011.
