Beyoncé's proudest moment isn't any of the countless GRAMMYs she's won. It's not the Super Bowl halftime shows -- plural -- she's performed in. It's not the sold-out world tours or record-breaking albums or anything else that makes her Queen Bey.

It's her daughter.

"Out of everything I've accomplished, my proudest moment, hands-down, was when I gave birth to my daughter, Blue," the 34-year-old singer revealed in an interview with Garage magazine.

It's because of 4-year-old Blue Ivy that Beyoncé said her biggest hero is -- "and always will be" -- her own mother, Tina Knowles.

"She has taught me about caring for others, working hard and working smart," the "Formation" singer said. "Everything I know about being a mother comes from the examples she has shown. My mother has instilled confidence in my sister and me and taught us to always be grateful."

Bey, who will soon set out on her Formation World Tour, also opened up about her career.

"Over time, I have learned to focus on the things I want to focus on in the time frame that I set," she revealed. "I no longer have to work based on someone else's expectations or pressure. I put enough pressure on myself! I love being 100 percent involved with all my projects, and now I'm fortunate enough to do that."

Sooooooooooooooooo…about that new album, then.

Beyoncé's personal and professional lives collided when she gave a surprise performance at Blue's school fundraiser. Check out the slayage in the video below.
