Gwyneth Paltrow is finally getting her shot at being a famous "aunt," with pals Beyonce and Jay-Z expecting their first baby.

"I think motherhood is the biggest blessing of all time and it gives your life real meaning," she said.

Paltrow, making the rounds for Steven Soderbergh's disease flick "Contagion," touched on Beyonce's baby news and how she thinks it will shape the rest of the superstar's life.

"It's always interesting when you're a woman with success and you've achieved a lot, and then you have a baby and you realize everything you thought was an achievement really is nothing until you have a kid," Paltrow told E! News. "I think that will be [Beyonce's] experience." 

The "1+1" singer announced her pregnancy by turning up at the MTV Video Music Awards rocking a baby bump. Mother-of-two Paltrow more recently joined the parents-to-be aboard a yacht at the Venice Film Festival, where they were celebrating Beyonce's 30th birthday.
