Beyonce covers Vogue magazine latest issue, opens up on childbirth and life after
Famous award winning singer, Beyonce is on the cover of the September 2018 issue of ‘Vogue.’
The pop superstar opened up to Vogue about her pregnancies and how she has learned to accept her post-baby body in this new issue. Beyonce also talked about her career and how supportive her husband,Jay Z has been.
In her words:
“After the birth of my first child [Blue Ivy, 6], I believed in the things society said about how my body should look. I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months, and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it, looking back, that was crazy. I was still breastfeeding when I performed the Revel shows in Atlantic City in 2012. After the twins, I approached things very differently, I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir [now 13 months], I was swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the NICU.”
The 36 yr old star described her husband of 10 years, Jay-Z as a soldier and such a strong support system.
“I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and a father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later.” she said.
Beyonce also said that her “core felt different” after she underwent the C-section. “Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that,” she explained. “I needed time to heal, to recover. During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be.”
Beyoncé also had to make some lifestyle changes to prepare for her headlining gig at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this April. “I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol and all fruit drinks,” she told the publication. “But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too. My arms, shoulders, breasts and thighs are fuller. I have a little mommy pouch, and I’m in no rush to get rid of it,”.
“I think it’s real. Whenever I’m ready to get a six-pack, I will go into beast zone and work my ass off until I have it. But right now, my little FUPA and I feel like we are meant to be.”
