Beyoncé has admitted that she is "proud" to take daughter Blue Ivy on tour with her, since it has always been her dream to combine motherhood with her career.

The superstar songstress headed to Brazil over the weekend to continue her 'Mrs Carter Show' world tour and of course, one-year-old Blue was by her side.

Beyoncé looked cool and laid-back at the press conference in Brazil

Speaking at a press conference in the city of Fortaleza yesterday (8 September), Beyoncé discussed how happy she was to have her daughter join her on the road, as it made the tour experience extra special.

She said: "It's really interesting because I'm touring with my daughter for the first time. My dream has always been to balance my life and career. I think it's the one thing that women struggle with because it's so difficult having a career and being a mother."

The 32-year-old singer - who wore denim cut-off shorts and a colourful T-shirt for the day - also revealed that she felt "proud" to expose Blue to a number of different cultures and cuisines before she's even reached her second birthday.

"But when I'm able to travel to places like Brazil, it makes me so proud that she's able to experience these different cultures and meet all these interesting people and eat amazing food at such a young age. It makes me really proud of my job."

Blue is certainly racking up the air miles as of late.

The singer took some time to greet her Brazilian fans

Just last week the tiny tot enjoyed a luxury cruise with her famous parents, as they celebrated Beyoncé's 32nd birthday in Italy.

Joined by her rapper hubby Jay-Z, Bey was spotted soaking up the sun on their private yacht, taking pictures of family and friends and even taking a dip in the sea.

However, the birthday holiday was only brief, as she then got straight back to work by jetting to Brazil for the Latin American leg of her mammoth world tour.

She really does make juggling parenting duties with being a pop icon look like a breeze!
