It's official: February has been the month of Beyoncé — and now she's ready to get personal.After wowing millions during her flawless Super Bowl halftime show, the singer's much anticipated documentary, Life Is But A Dream, premieres tonight on HBO — and fans are about to see the superstar like they've never seen her before.
Luckily, Life & Style had the honor of attending the 31-year-old's big NYC premiere on Feb. 12 where we met her uncle Roland (her mother Tina Knowles' brother) — and he got us even more excited for the special. From what she's like as a mother to something readers would be surprised to know about the "Singles Ladies" singer, her proud uncle spilled all the deets.

Check out our fun Q&A with him below:
Life & Style: You must be so happy about Beyoncé becoming a mother. Have you spent much time with Blue Ivy?Roland: Oh, not enough! She is such a beautiful little girl. She is really very good — she’s great. She is so very, very nice and we just love the heck out of her.
L&S: What makes Jay-Z and Beyoncé such great parents?R: Well, they pretty much are like all the other parents in our family. We have a very close bond. My parents were close — both were always there and we never had to worry. I think they’re both the same way.
L&S: What is something our readers would be surprised to know about her?R: Well, in the film you will see some things that are very private and personal. Things that I didn’t think she would discuss, but she is.

L&S: What was Beyoncé like as a little girl?R: She was really sweet. Never any trouble, never wanted anything. You always wanted to give her something and she was always like, “no no no no, I’m okay.” She really was a sweet little girl.
L&S: So she puts other people’s needs ahead of her own?R: Pretty much. It’s the same way with everyone in the family. Everyone acts the same and she's like all of the rest of the family. All real good people, real caring. We all went to Catholic school, so we had the nuns’ upbringing and it made a big difference in our life.
