“My daughter introduced me to myself. My story did not feel complete and I didn’t know why, but after I gave birth I looked at my diaries and everything made sense. There are so many connections in the film that I didn’t realize until I gave birth. Everything just completely connected and I said now I know who I am… I wasn’t complete before my daughter.”
– Beyonce, on how the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy, changed her life in interview with Oprah’s Next Chapter series on OWN.
