She may be one of Hollywood's sexiest stars, but Beyonce admits that looking good doesn't always come easy.
"I love my butter pecan ice cream, but I also love to work out," she explains in the new issue of Cosmopolitan U.K. "We all have our issues. Mine is arms and legs, keeping them tight and toned. It takes work, believe me."
And the superstar enjoys showing off the results for hubby Jay-Z. "I love a pair of high, sexy stilettos with a beautiful dress," she says. "You can be beautiful but if you’re not secure in yourself, you don’t come across as sexy."
But Beyonce might be switching to a pair of stretch-waist pants in the very near future: The singer reveals that she's ready for a baby.
"Yes, I do want to embrace what happens next and family," she tells the magazine. "It’s funny how your outlook changes as you get older, how you look at life – at other women – in a different way. I have so much admiration for women who are mothers, who balance family and work.”
