Beyonce Knowles-Carter sat down recently for an intimate interview with Katie Couric for ABC’s 20/20.
The interview airs tonight (December 2, 2011) at 10pm ET and Queen B will be talking about her controversial baby bump and addressing why we’ve seen it fluctuate day to day.
Couric greeted Beyonce with a hug during their “20/20” interview and she couldn’t resist giving the world’s most famous, fabulous and fierce baby belly a little rub. [Sidebar: She was probably secretly checking for a pillow… ]
“I bet your mom does it all the time, and your sister,” Couric said.
“Oh yeah. I mean, I can’t walk. I have somebody holding me and hugging, and there’s going to be so much love around the baby,” Knowles said, laughing.
The hot mom to-be recently released a video where she admits to playing a bit of hide & seek with her baby bump (click here if you missed it), but Bey explains that all the secrecy and games are merely for the protection of her unborn child.
The truth is, it’s safety.
I just want to make sure I can have a peaceful day. And I want to make sure my child is protected.
I guess that makes sense. There are quite a bit of loony bins out there…. *shrug*

Asked if she’d had any particular cravings, Knowles said: “Not really anything crazy.” She laughed off rumors that she put ketchup on everything and liked ice cream with hot chili sauce.
“I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, ‘I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.’ And I’m like, That is absolutely disgusting, what are you doing? He’s like, ‘I read it on the internet,” Knowles said.
Beyonce also speaks on the speculation, sparked by images of her on Australian TV in October, that her baby bump might be fake and that she may be using a surrogate.
“There are certain things that are so far [out] … it doesn’t even upset you,” Knowles said. Other rumors do take a toll, Knowles said, but on her protective family more than on her.
Beyonce, Jay-Z Have No Preference as to Baby’s Sex
Couric urged Knowles to enjoy the peace and quiet before the sleepless nights ahead.
“I know, everyone keeps telling me that — ‘Right now you don’t have baby bags, you just, the baby’s with you everywhere, so you have to enjoy this as much as you can.’ … And I am, I’m trying, but I’m still anxious. I just want to hold the baby!” Knowles said.
When Couric asked Knowles if she should get her a pink baby present or a blue one, Knowles demurred, her finger on her mouth. Couric reminded Knowles that her lifelong friend and Destiny’s Child band mate Kelly Rowland had already spilled the beans when she reportedly referred to the baby as “she.”
Knowles said she had no preference.
“I don’t care. I just want — I’m just like everyone else. And now I know why people say that, it’s true. I just want [a healthy baby],” she said.
