Beyoncé opened up in the September issue of Vogue.
When Blue Ivy was born, Bey put pressure on herself to get back in shape in three months. She even scheduled a small tour to make sure she got it done. “Looking back, that was crazy,” she said. “I was still breastfeeding when I performed the Revel shows in Atlantic City in 2012.”
She changed her approach when Rumi and Sir were born. She was 218 pounds when she gave birth to the twins, and had to have a C-section because both her health and the babies’ health was in danger. “During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be.”
- The way Bey sees in, “It’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies…To this day 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.” She went on to say, “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.” For the record, FUPA refers to the fatty upper pubic area.
