The 'Run The World' singer says she has never felt more sexy and confident than she does at the minute.

Beyonce has revealed she is the happiest she has ever been at the moment, just weeks away from becoming a first time mother with husband Jay-Z.

The ‘Countdown’ singer also says she feels “sexier” than she ever has before, and is enjoying the experience of being pregnant.

“This time in my life is probably one of the most fun [and] confident,” Beyonce revealed during a Brazilian New Years Special last weekend. “I feel so mature and I feel like a woman.

“I feel sexier than ever and I feel happier than I’ve ever been in my life. I feel all of the struggles and any kind of painful moment or confusing moment that I’ve had in my past to try and search for who I am, it’s all paying off right now.”

She added: “I’m just really in the best place I’ve ever been in.”

Beyonce also discussed her love for performing and says she enjoys the feeling of making people forget about their problems through music.

“I’m trying to make music that really gives people hope, it enhances their life. I want it to bring out whatever emotion they’re feeling,” she explained. “What a job, right? It’s such a beautiful experience to be free and to entertain and hopefully make people escape whatever drama for those moments.”

Despite recent reports to the contrary, Beyonce’s sister Solange has confirmed the ‘Love On Top’ singer is yet to become a mother.
