“All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” the House of Dereon co-founder (along with mom Tina Knowles) tells the magazine. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant.”
“It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother,” the star says. “Now God has blessed us with the ultimate.”
As far as announcing her pregnancy, she said, “I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself,” she says of rubbing her bump on the red carpet in an orange Lanvin gown. “I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did… I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”
“We have been together since I was 20 years old,” explains the star of her husband Jay-Z, who has been famously tight-lipped about their romance. “We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married.”
