BEYONCE Opening Up About Her Baby Weight

When it comes to losing those post-baby pounds, I’m sure that many mothers out there know that it’s no walk in the park. And for Beyonce, she says it wasn’t just a few walks in the park that she had to take to shed off that weight, but a couple of sprints, too! The chart topper opens up about her workout routine to Shape Magazine, and here’s a snippet of what she says in the interview:

“I gained 57 pounds when I was pregnant. I didn’t have a lot of time to lose the weight, because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again,” Knowles says in the minute-and-a-half video clip. “I’m not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape,” she goes on to say, adding that dance is what keeps her active.

Kudos to Beyonce for being honest about a subject that many moms out there don’t feel comfortable talking about. What do you think, Babyrazzi readers?

ALICIA KEYS Egypt Has His First Crush – On Blue Ivy!

Alicia Keys & Son Egypt Visit ITV Studios

Singer and celebrity mom Alicia Keys says that her son Egypt, 2, may have a wee kiddie crush on Blue Ivy, daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z.  Either that or he’s just being super sweet with her because she’s so dainty.  During an interview with Access Hollywood, she explained the story.

AH asked, “I heard that little Egypt has a crush on Blue Ivy?”.  Alicia shared, “Someone has a crush on someone. That’s for sure.”  Egypt reportedly was trying to give his buddy Blue Ivy some toddler kisses.  “Now I wasn’t there, but I do know that a phone call happened later in the evening.  I think [Egypt] might [have] kissed Blue Ivy when I wasn’t looking.”

Alicia says that he was looking out for his pal, “He probably was just being so gentle to her and she’s a little younger. So he was like giving her lots of love, which I think is so important”

Sounds like Alicia and Swizz Beatz are raising a kind little fella!  Too cute!

And Our Mom Quote Of The Day

Beyonce's "Life Is But A Dream" Documentary on HBO

“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.”

Opens Up About Her Daughter Blue Ivy In Vogue Magazine

She might only be a year old, but according to Beyonce, her daughter Blue Ivy is not only her “homey” but her best friend, too. How sweet! The chart topper and celebrity mom opens up to Vogue Magazine this month, where she talks about motherhood, giving birth, and how being a mother has changed her life. Here are some highlights:

On her daughter: “She’s my road dog. She’s my homey, my best friend.”

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

On providing a normal life for Blue: “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…School visits and lemonade stands and all that stuff. It’s very important for me.”

On her natural birth: “I felt very maternal around eight months. And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. 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.”

On the day Blue was born: “My family and my closest people were there when I gave birth. Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life.”

On the joys of motherhood: “I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more. Family has always been important. I’ve always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it’s just…Life is so much more than…It’s not defined by any of this [fame or money].”
