Beyonce Knowles isn't ready to be a mom.

The 'Crazy In Love' singer eventually wants to start a family with husband Jay-Z and would base her parenting skills on that of her own mother.

She said: "It's not time for that yet. But definitely there will be a time. I want to be a great mother, the kind of mother that I have. I want the same bond that I had with my mom and that would be enough for me.

"The security and love I feel being in a relationship, a marriage, it's absolutely incredible. Incredible."

The pop star's husband of a year-and-a-half was reportedly overheard recently saying he's ready to start having babies with Beyonce and that "procreating" is high on their agenda right now, but she has since denied this.

The 28-year-old singer said the time for parenthood would come but for now she was happy just being a couple.

She has also previously said that watching her sister Solange give birth had put her off the experience.
