Queen or King B, whatever you want to say, but just make sure you call her royal, because that’s how Beyoncé looks in the photo spread for her cover feature in the new March issue of VOGUE magazine. Among the many events, performances, photoshoots and personal life adventures Bey shares some personal details about her 1-year old daughter Blue Ivy Carter, and the process of child birth.
“I felt very maternal around eight months,” she said. “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.”
At the hospital her fears vanished. “My family and my closest people were there when I gave birth,” she says. “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.”
