Beyhive - the clue is in the name.

Beyoncé revealed she owns two bee hives and 80 000 bees in a recent interview with British Vogue. She told the magazine her two daughters Blue Ivy (8) and Rumi (3) have allergies and she uses the honey to help them.

When asked by the Editor-in-chief of British Vogue what is the one thing that may be surprising about her, she responded, “I know it’s random, but I have two beehives. Real ones. I’ve had them at my house for a while now. I have around 80,000 bees and we make hundreds of jars of honey a year."

The mother-of-three is a hands on mother and has often included her children in the work that she does. From whether writing songs such as Brown Skin girl for her daughters Blue and Rumi to dedicating her Disney film Black is King to her one and only son Sir Carter. 

Her fans -- affectionately known as the Beyhive, were elated to find out that she actually owns a Beehive.

Beyoncé recently dropped her latest Ivy Park collection in collaboration with Adidas.

She is currently promoting her line by sending various influencers a package with the stylish outfits.
