Kate Couric sat down for an exclusive interview with R&B superstar Beyonce that will air on ABC’s “20/20” Friday.
The songstress discussed her recent pregnancy and her growing career.
Beyonce was asked if she has had any pregnancy cravings.
"Not really anything crazy," she told Couric. “I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, 'I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.' And I'm like, that is absolutely disgusting, what are you doing? He's like, 'I read it on the Internet.’”
Rumors about the pregnancy are circulating since she announced the news of her pregnancy with husband Jay-Z at the 2011 “MTV Video Music Awards.” The usually private couple kept the news secret from the public until the very last minute.
"Physically I was starting to show, so it was only a matter of days before someone zoomed in,” said Beyonce about her decision to eventually show her belly. “So I just wanted it to be from me, and I wanted it to be something that was a celebration of something so beautiful. And I didn't want to release a picture or a statement. I figured the biggest statement was to -- just be."
Now that the 30-year-old singer is showing, she admits to being greeted the same way other pregnant women are often greeted.
ABC reports when Katie Couric greeted Beyonce Knowles with a hug before their interview, she could not resist giving the world's most famous, fabulous and fierce baby belly a little rub.
"I bet your mom does it all the time, and your sister," said Couric about the belly rub.
"Oh yeah. I mean, I can't walk. I have somebody holding me and hugging, and there's going to be so much love around the baby," said Knowles, laughing.
When asked if the baby will be a boy or a girl and reminded that best friend Kelly Rowland may have spilled the beans that it was a girl Beyonce said she has no preference.
"I don't care. I just want -- I'm just like everyone else. Now I know why people say that, it's true. I just want [a healthy baby]," she said.
