Beyoncé: Baby Blue Ivy 'Introduced Me To Myself' (VIDEO)

On January 7, 2012, Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, welcomed their daughter, Blue Ivy, to the world. On "Oprah's Next Chapter," Beyoncé opens up to Oprah about how having a child changed her.

"So much joy and... she introduced me to myself," says Beyoncé. "My daughter introduced me to myself... My mother and I are so close and I always prayed that I would have that type of relationship with my daughter. And she's still a baby, but the connection I had with her when I was giving birth was something I have never felt before... We had a communication, and I envisioned her. And I envisioned the birth."

"Oprah's Next Chapter" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
