Beyoncé: I Communicated with Blue During Her Birth

Beyoncé Vogue Cover Talks Motherhood and Daughter Blue Ivy
Courtesy Vogue

Motherhood was a calling Beyoncé heard loud and clear.

While in labor with her first child, the songstress formed an instantaneous bond, an experience that was music to the mom-to-be’s ears.

“I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door,” Beyoncé, 31, recalls in Vogue‘s March issue.

“And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”

Surrounded by close family and friends — including husband Jay-Z — for the birth of Blue Ivy, Beyoncé managed to find strength in her support system, allowing her to embrace the moment … and the pain.

Everything that scared me just was not present in that room,” she explains. “So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction … it was the best day of my life.”

Now the proud mama of a 13-month-old daughter — who she calls her “road dog,” “homey,” “my best friend” — says life has new meaning. “I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more.”

The star also opens up about her life in her upcoming HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream, which premieres Saturday, and she addresses the rumors surrounding her pregnancy.

“That was very odd. Who even thinks that?” Beyoncé says of the speculation that she used a surrogate. “Like, who would make that up … You can’t take it too seriously.”

Instead, the working mama is focusing her attention on finding the fine balance between her personal and professional lives as she plans her upcoming tour with plenty of downtime built in to spend with Blue.

While the tight-knit trio gear up for life on the road, the proud parents hope that, one day, they can give their baby girl a chance at a normal childhood.

“At some point it’s very important to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and live and do all the things that any child should be able to do,” Beyoncé says.

“School visits and lemonade stands and all that stuff. It’s very important to me,” she adds.

But a more laidback lifestyle with her little girl isn’t the only thing Beyoncé is looking forward to. Eventually, she and Jay-Z are hoping to make Blue a big sister.

“When I was younger, there were moments when I said, ‘I’m not going to have children,'” she recalls. “And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don’t know when.”

She’s a baby…not a BFF. Oh the problems that poor child will have.

Teresa on

Time for a lemonade stand??? Beyonce is going on tour and JayZ is talking about touring with Justin Timberlake. Really?

Gina on

Of course she will never admit she used a surrogate. The child doesn’t look like either parent.

tne on

Probably easier to communicate with Blue while coaching the surrogate

KIM on

Blue is a dumb name but she’s a sweet looking little baby. Looks like her daddy.

Kim on

Oh brother……….*rolling eyes*

gyl on

I do believe that Beyonce carried the child because I will choose to do so. But this story just makes her sound like she is trying too hard to talk about her natural birth. She has been on this mission to do damage control and it almost makes me want to believe she is covering up something.

sc on

“So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction….

Really anyone woman that has given birth doesn’t say the above statement. I didnt appreciate being torn apart. Just saying!

Nicole on

What a crock of ****

CM on

School visits….yeah….along with 10 bodyguards….typical family stuff you know? LOL!!

inthemood on

Oh dear God – this woman has seriously lost her mind. First she makes comments on how much power she has and now she’s communicating with her baby while she’s supposedly giving birth. What a whacko. This kid is seriously going to have issues, or be a complete spoiled brat. She probably thinks she gave birth to the female version of Jesus.

Crystal on

Seesh people!!!! Please stop with all the surrogacy talk. She had Blue the old fashioned way. It’s hurtful to the Carter family and frankly it’s sickening. I am so happy for Beyonce and Jay Z for finally fulfilling their dreams. Especially after the devastation of her miscarriage. ♥ them!!!!

@Gina- have you actually seen the baby????? She looks like Bey’ s mom and her cousin Jules.

Misty on

Who cares. Is her business. What matters is this child is well taken care of and loved. She will live better than anyone of us.

Jamie Marshall on

My goodness! Haters are among us! You’d think people who have more to do than worry about whether Beyonce used a surrogate or not. Sheesh!

Ini on

@ Gina: Using a surrogate doesn’t mean the child isn’t genetically both hers and Jay Z’s..

sue on

She is so phony, she really wants people to believe she gave birth!! I dont for a second

Anonymous on

Oh come on guys. It’s easy to be hateful, I don’t understand why we can’t just throw all suspicion out the window. Also, even if she did use a surrogate it would still look like her and Jay-z, because they would have inserted her egg inside of the other woman. I’m thirteen and even I know that. Some people just need to calm down.

anonymous on

@ sc, not every woman thinks the way you do. I’ve given birth five times, naturally, and loved each and every moment of each birth. I have several friends that also have had similar experiences. It’s called having a mind/body connection. Perhaps, you’ve missed out on a very enlightening experience. I’m sorry.

Growupbeyonce on

Beyoncé please wake up! Your child will have no shot at a regular life where she will be running through sprinklers without the paparazzi taking pictures and every stranger knowing her name. Also please enough with the my child is my best friend nonsense. Your child is your child and you are the parent!

Carrie M on

I think she’s gorgeous woman and I’m sure she loves her daughter tremendously. But please! Enough with her already! Every freakin’ time I turn around lately, there she is in my face. When will it stop?

unknown on

Right so you communicated with your daughter while the surrogate was in labor. Got it.

Alexandra on

Beyonce and Jay-z used to be so private and I really liked that about them….. I mean it took MONTHS for them to acknowledge they even got married. Lately, she seems to be such a media *****. Am I the only one who thinks so??

jane-mo on

Wow- I feel so sad for all you people that are filled with such hatred and jealousy towards someone you don’t even know. She is talking about an beautiful child. Maybe spend more time trying to improve your own self worth and you will see how pathetic it is to waste so much energy hating on others.

ReallyPeople on

LOL. Wow. Now i will admit to a certain level of distaste for Beyonce, but I am really not inclined to believe that she didnt have this baby. And to those who say how can your child be your best friend, i say to you how can they not be? I am the mother of two with the youngest being 4 months old and my kids are indeed my best friends. Nothing strange about that at all.

As to the baby not looking like either parent, have you seen a full on face shot of Blue Ivy aside from the one when she was a month old? Probably not, a leg here, the back of her head there. My oldest looks like her father spit her out, i am nowhere to be found in her looks (attitude is something else entirely :) )

As much as i can’t stand Beyonce i dont know that all the ridiculousness surrounding her having this baby is necessary.

Mommy on

Yeah, I talked to my baby during delivery too….

I said It’s about time…get the freak out..

CestLavie on

OMG, this woman is so full of herself. I pity this baby. There was a baby girl name Blue, she was so poor that the only thing she had was money.

Kay on

Appreciate every contraction? Child please! All you can think about with each contraction is getting that baby out ASAP. I guess she wants props for having a natural birth.

Guest on

This woman is getting crazier by the minute…

Anonymous on

That picture on Vogue is over PHOTOSHOPPED! Look at her lips, teeth and eyes.

guest on

Not trying to be rude, but her whole “pregnancy” seemed off. I def think they had a surrogate. Which is fine. Its still biologically their embryo, usually, just implanted into the surrogate. The baby is too old to start talking about childbirth now. She just seems like a liar with all these specifics. She really never looked pregnant either. Or acted it.

Guest on

Gina! Find a hobby!

guest on

You guys are all assholes. To really believe she used a surrogate is hilarious. It makes you look like idiots for believing that. She obviously gave birth to her baby and her baby is going to have the same life any other celebrity’s baby is going to have. Give her a break.

Tammy on

OMG, go away!!! I am so Beyonced out! You’re not the virgin Mary… you’re a mediocre entertainer.

BG on

A lot of holes in her story. Her being the birth mother, lemonade stand(that will never happen) and why no photos of her pregnant and not gaining a tad bit of weight. She would have blimped out just aliitle as she’s a big girl. People just don’t buy it. Lip syncing over rated.

Yuck on

Overcompensate much?

Blue Ivy already has a big brother that Jay Z doesn’t acknowledge.

esymmons on

come on…what science fiction crap are you unloading today? it’s childbirth, nothing more, nothing less.

Teresa on

No one who has ever given birth would ever say they “appreciate every contraction.”

Let it go. Most people don’t believe you anyway and you look just plain ridiculuos saying things like that.

Nothing wrong with a surrogate if you needed one to help you have a child.

kim on

I communicated with my baby too. I said “get out!”

KIM on

She can’t help it if her daddy looks like Joe camel.

Anonymous on

Gina, do you have some inside connection? Sounds like you have pics of Blue Ivy and ready to write a memoir lol lol. I can’t imagine any woman LYING about going thru nine months of pregnancy so until there is REAL proof that Beyonce used a surrogate, I will continue to believe her. Soo many haters…too bad people just can’t get a life and let it go !!!

Anonymous on

the name Blue Ivy backwards in latin word means Lucifer’s daughter!

Pamela on

“So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction”…OMG. I never doubted she had this child herself until i read this sentence. She totally doesnt know what shes talking about.. Never heard any mother say something this silly. The dumb crap celebrities say sometimes.. trying to appear cooler than the rest of us…. Wait til u actually have a contraction Bee… SMH.

Kel on

To Anonymous that said “She’s a baby…not a BFF. Oh the problems that poor child will have.” what’s wrong with her calling her child her best friend, she can be her mom and her best friend. I know that My mom is my best friend and i didn’t have problems. My mom knew when to be my mother and she knew when to be my friend growing up and she still does that. There are moments in my life that I just need my MOM and then there are times that I just need my Best Friend. So i don’t see where you think the child will have problems because her mom is not only her mom but also her best friend. Most daughters are Best Friends with their mom!!!

Changes to a woman’s naval tells whether she ever gave birth or not.

No need to be sorry! I had my babies naturally as well no drugs(not saying u did) n I too was of mind/body…and I enjoyed my experience of childbirth after I gave birth n held my babies. I also have lots and lots of friends that have given birth n its not a walk in the park! I was stating how many more of really feel. I am so glad that you had a pleasant experience 5 times…wow! Glad to share different views!

Soo tired of hearing about this over and over…really, who cares?

Well, I’m glad she feels connected to her daughter and all, but it sounds like she could use some time around every day people instead of just artistic types.

Wonder when she is going to walk on water or part the seas… She is really full of herself. Used to love her – can’t stand her anymore. She is very self-centered and self-important.

She sounds so dumb every time she opens her mouth. That’s what you get when your parents push for fame instead of an education.

Brandi on

Lol how sad that some people can’t let go of this whole surrogate rumor…lol it’s like a r&b conspiracy theory! Who CARES?? Children have many different paths and journeys taken to come into the world but the important thing is that they are HERE and they are happy and healthy…nothing else matters! #GetOverIt

keilanisma on

I don’t understand why she puts herself in the media so much lately….shes always been extremely private about her life. As far as giving birth, i will give her the benefit of a doubt. We’ll never know the truth tho.

martine on

Beyonce’s comments about the birthing process are just strange. And what parent considers their 13 months old their ‘best friend’?? I don’t even know what to say.

freya on

Well whatever makes you think that you fooled us Beyonce. But coming from someone whose been there and experience childbirth You have no conscious of anything except for that excruciating pain your in every minutes your contraction starts. and especially when they become seconds apart. until your epidural kick in . then you can think of anything even fairies and goblins.

Anonymous on

You’re right, Beyonce. It does sound crazy. There doesn’t seem to be much that is real about you, so it’s hard to fathom your child will have a “normal” existence.

Sharon on

I think her baby is adorable, but seriously enough already, woman have babies everyday and it seems like we are hearing a lot about Blue and her birth.. Time to move on and enjoy your child.

LAURA on

This article is HYSTERICAL!!!!!!! Beyonce is a piece of work!!!!! Her daughter is her homey? I needed a good laugh!!!!!!

Kat on

You know if she came out and said she chose a surrogate because she was scared after the miscarriage, we would understand. But she wants to put herself on a pedestal, like Beyonce Almighty or something. Good luck with that, it’s so hard being perfect, it’s impossible!

ok reality! on

there was and interview where beyonce was sitting down and you can see the pillow bent in. Sorry a real pregnacy doesnt do that

Anonymous on

This girl needs to stop with this nonsense..

Amen! Maybe if people put the same effort that they use to speculate about Blue Ivy into their OWN kids and families, there wouldn’t be so many kids with abuse and neglect issues…

kd on

Well said. What’s wrong with a loved child?

If Bey were to show a video of her giving birth ya’ll would still say that’s fake too.

Jennifer on

i’m sure she mentally sang her the star spangled banner!

TunechiGal on

I think it’s funny how people talk about Blue Ivy’s name but Drew Barrymore named her baby Olive and no one said a word. I think she carried little Blue and I love the relationship she and Jay Z have and Im definitely watching her special on HBO.

Fatima on

Watch this video of Beyonce performing on the Jimmy Fallon Show in july 2011, look closely you will see that she had morning sickness and a tiny baby bump. http://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=wTEGWxxKBVw

Charli on

I read the headline and came strictly for the comments.

Jeeny on

The more that comes out of her mouth the more it makes her look like she is trying to coverup a non-pregnancy and the use of a surrogate. The folding stomach, a very light skin tone baby and now this crazy conversation is really too much….give it up already and stop trying to convince us, because the more you do, the more it is obvious you are full of sh*t!

Hayles on

You guys are unbelievable. This woman is sharing an a beautiful experience and expressing her love for her baby and any mother that has posted negatively should know different. Any woman for that matter. I find her real and refreshing

Porch Times With Memaw on

I am so sick of her acting like she’s the only person in the world who has ever had a child. I used to like Beyonce, but she will just not shut up about it.

BabygirlDanni on

Seriously childbirth is a beautiful experience and for myself I was thinking of seeing my baby! Whether she had a surrogate or not is her business & her business alone! Its really sad though that she has to feel like she has to prove it to others! Well Beyonce, you do not have to prove anything at all! Just enjoy being a new Mother and remember only God can judge! Don’t pay any attention to any of these judgemental fools! If they have such a problem they shouldn’t read the articles about you

Teresa on

LIAR….Scum

guest on

i do understand what beyonce is saying about communicating with her child during labor — i had a similar sense of connecting with my litlte guy during the 20+ hours of labor. it was a gradual process of him coming into the world, and while it was overwhelming at times, at the very end i was so focused on helping him out, that i honestly didn’t have time to register the pain. i understand that natural childbirth isn’t for everyone (and it doesn’t make a mom more of a woman to go that route!), but it was a great choice for me to be able to feel every second of my son coming into this world. so, i think that for those of us who are interested in what beyonce has to say, this vogue article will give us some an interesting perspective on her, and for those of you who don’t like her/care what she has to say, then stop critiquing her and read some other article!

jena on

I totally disagree. I tell my babies all the time that they are my best friends. I am exactly the person I want to be when I am with them, and its beautiful because they don’t judge, they just love their mama. Of course when they get older, it will be time to be their mother first and their friend second, but for now it is one and the same and its a beautiful thing to be cherished. Don’t be so judgemental!

Nicole on

She’s a baby…not a BFF. Oh the problems that poor child will have

Okay Anonymous- give me a break. shes talking about the bond she has with her baby. How many mother-daughters consider each other BEST FRIENDS? I did with my mom – there is nothing wrong with that- its not a matter of blurring lines of parent and buddy or tryingto put yourself on same level its not about enabling unhealthy co dependant behavior. Its the bond you have with your child. itts based purely on love.

Erin on

Oh come on with the surrogate talk. Conspiracy theorists, isn’t Elvis still in need of being found?

I think it’s refreshing and normal for her to want her child to have a “normal” upbringing.

Yasmin on

Such Ignorant people! Really a surrogate! That’s her own child– she has bikini pics of her pregnant– how do you fake that? Plus shouldn’t you just be happy for her… You know Gina– a surrogate uses DNA from both the mother and the father, so the baby can’t not look like her parents!!

What;s wrong with Beyonce saying that her baby is her best friend?MyGosh. this is her BABY- she created her she is very bonded with her child. PERFECTLY normal. My motherwas mybest friend and Icame out just fine. Shes talking about it from the point of LOVE not an unhealthy place. Give her a break and let her bask in the glow and light of herbaby.; Let her be a mommy. most mommies worship their children.

lex on

I didn’t believe the surrogate story at first… then I saw the clip of her stomach deflating. No pregnant woman’s stomach should deflate like that. Unless you’re faking a pregnancy.

Nicole on

Why is this so much sad judgement on this board.?? Let Beyonce ( or anything mother) talk with pride about their babies !

Amanda on

Really? I have given birth 4 times. It was painful but I welcomed each contraction because I knew each one brought me closer to meeting my baby. To each their own. I thought giving birth was an amazing experience, the pain was really insignificant in the grand scheme of it all. I feel badly for women who remember their childrens’ births as nothing but painful.

JB on

Why do celebrities think their birth stories are so special? Is she aware women have been giving birth for thousands of years….get over yourself.

Nicole on

Why on earth are so many turned off by what Beyonce said? She bonded for 9 months withthe baby that grew inside of her.what do you expect her to feel? Its clear not many people on this board are mothers. Its a shame people cannot express a beautiful feeling without people dumping on it.

Lala on

Beyonce is washed up. Give it up girlfriend. Enough already. Your voice and music is annoying. Go have 4 babies and be done. People clearly dont care…

Mel on

Relax people. Yeah, it is a little crunchy to say she talked to her baby during the birth. Big deal. Does it mean she’s a bad mom? Heck no, it just means she was focusing on getting the baby out. Natural childbirth would make anyone kooky, give her a break.

love4270 on

“Of course she will never admit she used a surrogate. The child doesn’t look like either parent.” ~ Gina

A surrogate is JUST a carrier for the baby. Fertilization happens IN A LAB and is then implanted into the surrogate. So, your statement that Blue looks like neither JayZ nor Beyonce is irrelevant! The baby is THEIR DNA!

Nicole on

anonymous: PLEASE BE QUIET— get off the board ifyou are just going to continue this disrespectful comments!

Amanda on

I’m not a Beyonce fan, but every pregnancy is different. I worked w/ a woman who had a teeny little bump. She looked at MOST 4 months along at a staff meeting. She gave birth the same week. to a full term baby girl. I popped out early and was in maternity clothes at 3 months! Just because she may not have looked pregnant to YOU does not mean that she used a surrogate. Who cares if she did?

GJ on

I love how “celebrities” love to portray everyday, run-of-the-mill stuff like his as a holier-than-tou experience when it comes to them. Please, wake up, you are just as human as the rest of us, and I’m pretty sure it was a birth just like the millions there are every day around the globe. This is just pathetic, and by the way, I don’t have kids but I’m already in communication with my future ones. Grow up seriously.

Stephanie on

wow…she did not have a surrogate….there were pics of her pregnant and in a bikini! also, there are people out there who found their birth experiences to be positive despite (or because of?) the pain! i have respect for beyonce and i’m sure she is and will continue to be an excellent mother.

Sue on

That was a really neat story about the birth! Great article. Thanks!

Shelies on

I want to see just ONE picture of her with an actual baby bump just like everyone else posts. That is truly all it would take for people to believe it. Until then…she’s a fake.

Are you all really and truly basing your belief that Beyonce did not give birth solely on the video of the fabric of her dress folding? Wow y’all are all excellent researchers. And also great mind readers and insiders to know Beyonce’s actual life. GET ONE, LOSERS. I am sure every single one of you knows the exact situation.

So she wants her kid to be normal? Yeah, because locking down the entire birthing floor at the hospital is a GREAT way to start a normal childhood.

i generally like beyonce and don’t agree with the haters but i have to admit she sometimes sounds cuckoo when she goes on & on about the joy of blah blah blah. it was labor. every mother who gives birth goes through it. it’s been going on for thousand and thousands of years. don’t have to turn it into a song.

shannon on

The people who still think Beyonce had a surrogate and faked being pregnant are no different than the birthers who are still convinced that President Obama was not born on US soil. Present all the irrefutable proof in the world and they still won’t believe it. Heck, if Beyonce went crazy and decided to publicly share video of her daughter’s birth, these people would say that it’s an actress dressed up to look like her.

MomofThree on

To Amanda – I felt the same way with my first born, who is the only one out of my three children that I got to experience labor with at all. I wanted to hold him and meet him so badly, and I knew labor was going to be painful, so I just kept thinking to myself that every contraction brought him closer to being born. So I would hold on to the metal bar on the side of my hospital bed, say out loud to my husband “I love you, I love you, I love you” and focus on bringing my son closer to birth.

Yes it was painful, but it was an experience that I cherish and I don’t remember the pain as something bad, but as something amazing and beautiful that not every woman gets to share in.

I can understand what Beyonce means about appreciating every contraction and communicating with Blue while she was in labor. Blue is very lucky to have a Mom who feels that way because not every woman that gives birth does. I wish her and Jay-Z the best and hope that Blue is able to have those experiences that Beyonce talks about.

Mimi on

The tour is all three, Beyonce, JayZ and Timberlake.

Anya on

Using a surrogate does not mean that Blue is not their biological child, it means that another woman carried the child to term for them and gave birth to her. But whose business is that anyway?

denise on

I saw her on a beach somewhere in a bikini. She was definately pregnant! I think she waited until she was 6 or 7 months to announce. Period point blank she gave birth to baby Blue……

I wish Beyonce and her family all the best, but really… some of the stuff she said sounds a bit loony. I think you have to be weird to be famous.

Why even comment if you don’t have anything nice to say? I will never get that. I only click on the articles im interested in…..duh! Dumbasses!!!!

Nicole on

Ok people who cares if she used a surrogate or not Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban did for there 2nd daughter Faith Margaret & nobody knew about her until after she was 2months old…I honestly think Beyonce carried Blue Ivy its just people in today society are to quick to judge things…

Brandi on

You are an IDIOT. The skin tone of the baby means NOTHING. My skin tone is lighter than BOTH of my parents and I am definitely their biological child…I look just like my mother and inheritated the same heart defect that both my paternal grandmother and my father have. I also saw the video you are referring to and in my opinion, it looks like the fabric on her dress folded when she sat down. I’m also wondering if even if Beyonce did try to fake a pregnancy, being as wealthy as she is, why would she buy some half-ass prosthetic belly that folds when she sits down instead of one that was of the best quality and the most realistic? It just doesn’t make any sense. I believe that Beyonce is used to being loved by the press and viewed in a positive light and all this talk of her being dishonest about her pregnancy is especially hurtful because of her previous miscarriage so she’s opening up about her pregnancy because she isn’t used to being attacked or hated on this level and feels like she has to defend herself. I wonder why nobody talks about the bikini pictures that came out not too long after her pregnancy came out where she is clearly pregnant. It’s sad…it’s like people only see what they want to see. I’m sure when her HBO documentary comes out and people see more into her pregnancy, the naysayers will have nothing else to say. I do agree that these stories in the press about her right now are a little overkill, but I understand why she’s defending herself. I love being a wife and a mother wholeheartedly and I would feel like a cornered animal if the world started questioning if my pregnancy was real and if our baby was really ours. I don’t care how Blue came into the world, really…I’m happy for Bey and wish her, hubby and baby many blessings and all the best <3

what a beautiful article. blessings to all!

Maybe it’s just me but for someone who has tried so hard to keep her life private has all of a sudden released every little detail of her delivery that was over a year ago. She was so hush hush until recently.. It seems a little odd.

A lot of HATE on this post! Yikes. Congrats Beyonce and Jay Z. People know if you really had the baby because they are flies on the wall in your house, and at place of birth! *sarcasm* Live your life, Mrs. Carter.

rockybopper on

FYI B – Saying things like “Who even thinks that? Like, who would make that up?” really makes it sound like you got yourself a surrogate.

Cate on

Not healthy to try to be BFFs with your daughter. My mom took that approach, and we don’t have a very good relationship. I’m not her buddy, and I don’t appreciate it when she treats me that way. Parents need to be loving sources of authority, advice, and guidance.

Greer on

If you have to tell people you are a powerful woman — then you are probably not and you are trying to believe it yourself!! Money, fame and prestige does not make you a powerful person.

lauren on

lol me too. I like Beyonce as a performer but find her to be so fake when she talks and the way she talks. It seems like she tries so hard to talk so softly and act all demure. Common Bey, look at where you came from and who you are married to.

lauren on

What ever happened with that paternity claim? It seems to have been hushed up pretty fast.

lauren on

Totally agree. It explains the nonsense that comes out of many celebrities mouths. Many didn’t even finish high school and fewer have college degrees.

Sandi on

The more Bey talks about the birth of her sweet little child, the more she casts a shade on the topic of her using a surrogate. She sounds like she gave birth in a fairytale surrounded by fairies and singing bluebirds and all the Disney Princesses were there making tea and sowing clothes for Blue. Natural childbirth is no childs play – its hard, exhausing and painful. Maybe she was high on some drug or something….cause her account of giving birth is definately one of a kind. I like it – next time I wanna have what she’s having.

meghan on

I liked her better when she kept her private life private. The more she talks, the more of a pretensions douchebag she proves herself to be.

Melodie on

So they want her to have a normal life…maybe they should have thought of that before they started spoiling her since birth!! I pulled this from In Style (People’s sister magazine)”Together they’ve bought a Swarovski-studded high chair by Carla Monchen for $15,000, and a Fantasy ‘posh tots’ coach carriage crib for $40,000… Jay-Z bought Beyonce a solid gold handmade Ginza Tanaka rocking horse for $600,000. They’ve even splashed out on a $30,000 magical windmill playhouse for the garden and a mini Bugatti car, too. They’ve got baby charm bracelets, gold and platinum diamond rattles and from Tiffany & Co, too. Jay-Z and Beyonce have reportedly spent more than $1.5 million on their baby girl.” These 2 people are so out of touch with how the other 98% of the population lives is sad, I’m not begrudging them their success but by making such ridiculous statements about raising their daughter I couldn’t help but point out how they ARE rasing their daughter to be nothing but spoiled.

jessica on

OMG- she is so annoying, could she be anymore annoying with her bs crap about her “perfect” birth experience. PLEASE shut up you phony. First you say you had a csection, now you say you gave birth. Every time this woman opens her mouth, I think more and more that she never carried that child.

starbbycat on

The cool thing is that with them flaunting their wealth around the setting up of her nursery alone – it is comforting to know the only thing they cant buy her is a normal childhood.

melissa on

these fake pregnancy rumors are SOOOOOOO ridiculous. Nobody except for maybe a 14 year old who has no life does a fake pregnancy, especially not a famous person who is being watched 24/7 and if she did have to use a surrogate… that is not something anyone would or should hide. She could bring more awareness to it and be paid even more by companies so therefore… that did not happen. I don’t care if the baby fell from a cloud and honestly… in the big picture… WHO THE F*** REALLY CARES? time to move on!

I think the Beyonce surrogate rumors are ridiculous as well. I don’t doubt she was pregnant or gave birth.

When she sings lullabies to her surrogate baby does she lip-sync?

Curious on

I don’t understand people’s negativity. I’m not a huge beyonce fan, but I never thought blue wasn’t hers, and even if a surrogate had carried her, Blue ivy is still her daughter, whether or not she is biologically related or not. Tell that to an adopted mother and see what she says to you.

Furthermore, her communicating with blue sounds just like the visualization technique they teach you to do during delivery. It was her tool to focus through the pain and remember that every contraction was bringing her closer to her daughter. And any wonderful mother I know, would endure anything to see her child, to hold them close, and I don’t imagine labor and delivery is the exception.

People need to be nicer. What do you get by coming on here and trashing a new mom? Regardless of the details, the fact is that blue is a well loved baby. There isn’t a thing wrong with that. So maybe the problem is yours. Deal with your own life instead of trashing a beautiful moment between a new mom and her daughter.

Actually, SC there are plenty of women who choose to view contractions differently. I have had four chilldren and with the first three I resisted them because they were painful. With my last child, I did a course called Hypnobabies and it helped me embrace my labor as a journey. Once I stopped fearing and resisting them, it was a whole different ball game. I don’t like Beyonce at all, but I can definitely respect what she is saying about birth.

Anonymous on

As a doula, I tell birthing women to communicate with their babies all the time. Good for her for connecting with her child during a time of hard work! Also welcoming contractions is the way that MANY women cope with labor. Fighting them and dreading the next one will only make the contractions more painful. I’m not a huge Beyonce fan, but I think it’s fantastic that she is talking about her birth in such a positive way. Stop with all of the negativity everyone!

derft on

She DID NOT deliver that baby!!!!!

Whi on

Haters gonna hate…

I had a natural birth and while it was unpleasant, I totally get what she is saying. There is some part of you that just focuses and thinks about the positive, of helping that baby work it’s way down and out. That’s not crazy, covering-anything-up talk, that’s just how it is for some. You get your mind in this place and you just do it. I guess I dont know why everything is getting so upset over this… she’s allowed to talk about her birth, her relationship with her daughter, and her hopes and dreams for her future. it’s not silly or stupid, it’s called being a parent.

I can’t decide if people are just racist or single minded. It doesn’t matter if you like her as a performer. She’s talking as a mom. She’s talking as any new mom would. Completely smitten and in love with her baby as any good mom would be. It doesn’t matter if her child is hers, adopted, surrogate, or alien. It matters that she clearly adores her child. That is something to praise not put down. People need to back off their holier than thou attitude and see people as people. This world is filled with enough hate. Don’t add to it.

bkable on

@ReallyPeople.. I’m 22 and I would just now say my parents are my friends. Up until recently, they were my mentors and my PARENTS. My best friend, on the otherhand, her mom and she are best friends, have been forever. Her mom is too afraid to say anything negative to her, won’t discipline her and my friend is a complete B**** to her mom because she knows her mom will let her do it. If you’re kids scream “I hate you”, you’re doing your job and they will thank you one day. My mom always said, “I would rather you hate me forever and become a good person than for you to love me but become a hellion”…

So I say to you, be careful being best friends with your kids. If you wanted friends, you would’ve went to a pot luck and met some but you wanted children; to be a parent, so be one.

I tend to believe that she gave birth, but if she DIDN’T, I hope the surrogates eyes don’t get stuck rolling them so much! It sounds like a beautiful fairy tale birth– with lots of medication. Wish mine went so smoothly. :)

My three year old tells his Dad and I all the time that we are his best friends. What am I going to say…”Sorry honey, I am your mom, not your best friend.” Of course I tell him he is my best friend too. Just because I say that, doesn’t means he allowed to do whatever he wants and there are no rules. I am not a fan of beyonce, nor do I care if she had the baby or not. But some of you people need to back off and give the girl a break. It amazes me how upset and emotionally invested people become in the lives of those they never met.

Janice on

This is funny to me because I did 32 hours of labor with my son and towards the end I told him it was time to be born. The minute I said this he came flying out. I felt connected to my son even when he was in the womb. I would talk to him and he would respond with a kick. Not sure why this seems so unusual to some people. I guess me and Beyonce are crazy. I’m not Bey fan btw.

A used to refer to my daughter as my “lil’ buddy” and “my best buddy” when she was little too. Because she was. We hung out lots and did everything together. I got to be a kid again. But I was a parent when I needed to be and I heard “I hate you” many times when she was a teenager. People need to chill… your daughter can be your best friend as long as there’s boundaries. I don’t like this cover shot – it’s beautiful but it doesn’t look like Beyonce…

Lyoness on

I’m not a huge Beyonce fan but the people pushing these surrogacy rumors look like complete nutcases! SO much negativity and hate for her. People need to get out of her business and find their own. She and her husband appear to be happily married, have worked hard and become a success. That’s the American Dream.

Women sing songs and talk to their babies while they’re pregnant all the time. Why is Beyonce weird because she talked to her daughter while she was in Labor? I work in L&D. That pain is on a whole different level. If you have to mentally overcome it by visualizing or mentally removing yourself from it.

Why is she weird because she says Blue is her best friend or her ‘road dog? Their extended family is very close, and they travel a lot. It’s better than leaving her with a random nanny. Most small children will say that their parents are their friends. That’s important because it means that they trust their parents. My mother is one of my best friends and I’m 31. That doesn’t mean she still isn’t my mother and I can get away with stuff.

They’re from TX. Yes she’ll have luxuries but I highly doubt Blue is going to be some awful, spoiled child who grows up without discipline or is appreciative for what her grandparents and parents have worked for.

After reading some of the comments on here I can’t help but think that people have a lot of anger in their own lives! Otherwise it would be INSANE to have this much anger towards an entertainer you don’t even know. Yes this is the entertainment section…. but it’s pathetic that people think its OK to voice whatever evil, sick and pathetic thoughts that come into their heads – especially about the woman’s child.

Deb on

There is way too many red flags going on with Beyonce and her fake or real pregnancy. I saw that interview and said that don”t look like a real pregnancy belly. Remember all that hoopla during her hospital stay that angered all of the other patients because they were blocked off from seeing their newborns. Why all of that security? Too much. What are they trying to hide? Even nightly news was reporting how fathers weren’t allowed to see their preemie children in ICU because of Beyonce security staff. Also I thought Beyonce said she had a c section now she is creating a natural birth story. IMO Beyonce is receiving a lot of bad PR since the Inaguration and she is being told to act more human in hopes of being liked but in return she is receiving even more negative press.

tlc on

Whether or not she gave birth or used a surrogate, she truly sounds like she’s in her own reality. Yes, people have babies, yes, your babies are your greatest accomplishment (to most people), and yes, babies are loved…however, to say that Blue Ivy is going to have a “normal” life is just a fantasy. She will be hounded forever by paps, she will be spoiled rotten (already seems to be anyway) and she will never go hungry or have to worry if her parents have money for toys or clothes or food.

These celebs have tons of money, but sometimes they are so freaking out of touch with how the real world works. I’m sure Beyonce didn’t grow up fithly rich and she should know that buying her baby a 40,000 dollar crib is NOT NORMAL!

cookie on

Just suppose,she did use a surrogate.So what?Will some of you then have the satisfaction of saying,”I told you so”,”she lied”,then what?What does it profit you?,What do you get out of it?A high five?,a pat on the back?The baby is here,and whether or not she came from her mom,(Beyonce).or the stork it doesn’t matter.It’s time to stop beating a dead horse.It doesn’t matter people.Move on.I believe she carried this baby.Next.

Maybe those of you who don’t think Blue looks like Beyonce or Jay-Z are looking at the wrong pictures because, I don’t know, the kid LOOOKS just like her parents. Good lord. It’s Suri Cruise version 2.0.

And people can keep using the whole surrogacy thing because of that one video of the dress poofing, but Beyonce looked like a pregnant woman. You can’t fake a pregnancy face or edema in the legs.

ME on

@bkable…that’s really sad that you are only now friends with your parents. My mom has always been my best friend, but that doesn’t mean she was my only friend or best friend, I had girls my age that were my best friends. I would say it is the mark of a good parent to be able to be a friend to your child, as well as a parent. When I’ve talked to friends who don’t think of their parents as friends, they are usually always upset with their parents and don’t feel they can communicate with them or be honest with them about things. It’s a rare thing to find these days I guess.

I’ve had a wonderful relationship with my mother for almost 30 years now. Growing up, I wasn’t afraid to talk to her about anything in my life, I trusted her completely, I always knew she would answer truthfully to any questions I might have, I respected and loved her and I think that is what made our relationship so much better. I can’t tell you how many people growing up said they wished they had the kind of relationship I had/have with my mother.

And I can tell you, I’ve yelled I HATE YOU plenty of times to my mother.

You can be a parent and a friend at the same time and it is sad when parents and children can’t have that kind of friendship/relationship.

Yes I know you were communicating with that baby’s mom daily. You are trying to hard to prove that you had a child when you was up the next day with a flat stomach and some high high shoes. When a woman gives birth we do dont care about heels or going to a show to see nobody sing with a tight dress on. Stop lying and get some where and sit down. You have to be in the public eye by any means necessary. Now you came up with this mess. When you want to fake another one call me be a equal opportunity employer cause I want to get paid too. ok

Sue on

Any woman in hard labor, does even have a moment to “communicate” with their baby”, they are too busy trying to push it out, and be done with the horrible pain they go through. The pain makes you delusional, not visual.

This woman used a surrogate, and is trying to cover it up.

No one is going to convince me otherwise.

real mama on

JOKE!!! Come on Beyonce be real.

Tim on

You notice that in every interview she always says the same thing. She talks about the birth, but never once has she admitted that she actually gave birth. She talks about the surrogate, but never once has she actually denied it and said that she didn’t use a surrogate. All she ever says are things like ““That was very odd” or “Who even thinks that?”

I would just like to hear her say one time “I ACTUALLY GAVE BIRTH TO MY OWN BABY”…but that will never happen.

Every interview I have ever read on the subject, she speaks as if she is the third person in the room, along with the baby, and the actual birthing mother. I personally think she is full of crap and tries very hard to talk around the actual truth of anything.

josie on

It seems odd that a 31-year-old refers to her 13-month-old child as her best friend. Is her husband not considered her best friend as their child grows and matures to the point where she can truly be called a best friend?

Brandi on

You sound like such a freaking jackass. No one shoved anything in your face or put a gun to your head and made you look at this article…you chose to read it so shut up already with your whining. Did you ever stop and think that maybe Beyonce took an alternative approach for her labor and childbirth experience? In natural childbirth, there are techniques of communicating with your baby during labor that are embraced and encouraged. It’s different for every woman. Just because her experience is different from yours, it doesn’t make yours better or hers less important. Stop worrying about how Blue Ivy came into the world and go worry about your OWN kids.

Chance on

@anonymous
It really doesn’t have a thing to do with a mind/body connection. it has to do with the woman. Some women can easily have babies, while others cannot. I personally had contractions every 5 minutes for 30 hrs before I went to the hospital. They had to manually break my water and after another 12 hrs of contractions every 30 seconds I pushed for 3 hrs before they figured out that my hips werent opening. I had to have a csection. I will never be able to have a kid naturally and had it been 100 years earlier, I would have been dead. I have friends who didn’t even know they were in labor until their water broke, pushed a couple times and out the baby came. While I have other friends that had a terrible time one almost died. So, don’t act like women who have terrible labor aren’t trying hard enough or aren’t in tune with their bodies because it is much more complicated.

Humility is not her virtue…so why expect her to make her birth experience out as anything less than the second coming?

Appreciate your thought, but whatever. I am 40 years old and perfectly capable of knowing the difference between being a parent and being a friend. Yes i am my girls mother, first and foremost, but being their friend is important too. Stating that my children are my best friends doesnt mean i am going to drink wine, smoke doobies and share sex secrets with them. It doesnt mean that discipline wont happen when it needs to. I think most of you have a truly jacked up view of the world at large and seem to think that every mother is on some ‘teen mom’ type b.s and that is, IMHO a load of hot crap:) i have zero intention of going out with my children ((well, i am 40 and by the time they can go somewhere i will be sitting on the porch telling children to get off my lawn, all old lady style! lol), i will do my best to teach them the right way to be and hope to have a grand fun time doing it. Hecks to the yeah, my children are on my list of best friends. if yours arent, then i am saddened that you dont want that.

As far as the rest of you haters are concerned, seriously, get over yourselves. Did you ever consider that maybe she is over being secretive about her life? Perhaps dealing with a miscarriage and all that has given her strength and purpose and maybe she feels that now she can share some of her life with the people who call themselves her fans. If you are not one of those, then you should probably not speak, as her comments dont affect your life at all.

I have never commented on anything here on people.com before, but I must now. For those of you women who were not able to communicate with your children while they were being born, than I’m so sorry you didn’t get to experience that. I did, with my 3rd child. And while I didn’t necessarily enjoy each contraction, I did however welcome each one because I knew my baby was that much closer to joining us. I know it sounds crazy, it did to me too. But, I was determined to have a natural birth for my last and “enjoy” it. After some research I found Hypnobabies and it teaches women to relax during childbirth and communicate with the baby. Maybe Beyonce did something like that. Matter of fact, I sounded similar to her immediately after my 3rd child’s birth. If I could, I would have birthed my older kids in the same way. I feel sorry for those of you that are so judgmental and close-minded.

Anyone who thinks she used a surrogate is a paranoid lunatic. And making fun of her comments re: childbirth? Well, I’ve had two children, and I did appreciate every contraction because it meant I was that much closer to holding my baby in my arms. If you were screaming for the epidural, that’s your experience, and no one is judging you for that – so why judge others who didn’t?
