As we all know, Beyoncé likes to keep everything that’s going on in her life very low-key, but she has decided to open up about her struggles with her weight after giving birth to her twins Sir and Rumi.
Beyoncé felt the need to address her weight after fans started noticing a little bump during her On The Run II tour concerts. Many speculated that the singer was pregnant once again, but it turned out that it wasn’t the case. Speaking with Vogue Magazine as she graced the cover for its September issue, Bey kept it real and said that it was just her FUPA they were noticing: a large upper pubic area— which she got after giving birth.
“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. 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.”
Beyoncé went on to share that giving birth for the second time was much more complicated than the first.
“I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. 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.” She said. Beyoncé continued, “We spent many weeks in the NICU. My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. 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.”
The mother of 3 went into more details about how serious the C-section was for her, like the removal and shifting of some of her organs. Still, she was dedicated to recover and embrace her new body.
“I accepted what my body wanted to be. After six months, I started preparing for Coachella. I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol, and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too.”
Beyoncé ends off by saying that it’s important for women and also men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies.
