Beyonce told Access Hollywood in 2006 that before she turned 30, there were three things she wanted to do: marry, have kids and win an Oscar. In a new interview, Beyonce told Access that with just three years to go, she isn’t sure she will complete her list.

But the new bride said it’s not always easy to keep things under wraps.
“When you’re excited and you’re happy, it’s just, you know, it’s in you, you wanna just be like, ‘Yeah!’” she said.
