Beyonce Knowles says God will decide when she has a baby.

The 'Halo' singer has made no secret of the fact she would like to start a family with husband Jay-Z but she refuses to put any pressure on herself and will let nature take its course.

The 29-year-old star - who always said she would have a baby at 30 - said: "I thought 30 was so old back then! You know, one day (it will happen).

"That's something that God has to decide. When it happens, it happens. I'm just so happy to be in this place in my life."

Beyonce recently took some time off from her hectic career and says she loved every minute of it because she got to watch Jay-Z perform as a fan.

During an appearance on TV discussion show 'The View', she said of her schedule: "It was beginning to get fuzzy, I couldn't even tell which day or which city I was at.

"I would sit there at awards shows and they would give me an award and I was just thinking about the next performance. I never really thought about how fortunate I was - it was onto the next project and the next day.

"So I took some time off. I went to see museums, ballets, the Great Wall of China, the Louvre - everywhere I had been to but never got to see. I got the chance to see the (Jay-Z) shows in the audience, which I had never been able to do, so I was really inspired."
