Pop icon Britney Spears has been giving motherly advice to pregnant R and B queen Beyonce Knowles, telling her to take a break from her busy schedule when she gives birth, as it is something to "treasure".
The 'Crazy In Love' hitmaker who is married to rapper Jay Z is expecting a child by early 2012, but Beyonce plans to work till the baby is born.
"When you are excited about something, you don't have to think about your energy. It is natural and comes from adrenaline. It is important that I don't look at this (pregnancy) as like an illness. I am not sick. I am the same woman and I have the same passions," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
Spears, 29, who has two sons has advised the R andB star to take time off from work to treasure the moment.
"If you want to take two or three years off... because, you know, they (kids) grow so fast; it happens so fast. Just treasure the moments," Spears told MTV news.
