In her first interview since having her daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce is every bit the gushing new mom you’d expect. But she also defended the precautions she and husband Jay-Z took to protect their privacy during the birth.

In the wake of the birth there were several reports that other parents were kept from seeing their children due to security restrictions at Lenox Hill hospital placed by the Carters.

Beyonce defended the hospital lockdown in an exclusive interview with Star magazine:

“Security was very tight, not for the sake of it. It was for the security of our daughter.”

When asked about being a new mother, Bey said:

“Nothing can describe the feeling. You have the instant connection once you know your child is growing inside you, but when you hold it for the first time, the words can’t be found.”

Beyonce announced to the world that she was with child at the 2011 VMA’s during her performance of “Love On Top.”
