Beyonce Opens Up About Her Twins' Emergency Birth!

Beyonce is speaking out about the emergency birth of her twins in 2017.

The 36-year-old music icon revealed the details of the birth of Rumi and Sir in her cover story from the September 2018 issue of Vogue.

“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 wrote.

“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. Today I have a connection to any parent who has been through such an experience. After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been major surgery. Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that. I needed time to heal, to recover. During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. 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.”

  • Arx

    Wow thats all you got from that statement? Sad

  • KS_in_TP

    Sounds like her first pregnancy was really rough. Glad everyone is okay.

  • mahbelle

    beyawnce bores me to tears. she thinks she’s some sort of royalty or a queen. she ain’t all that. lots of women have been through a twin pregnancy just like her. she’s arrogant and annoying and photoshopped.

  • Arx

    Yet here you are reading an article about someone you don’t like. Taylor Swift is a complete generic, manipulative, lying, boring, whore but I’d never read anything related to her.

  • mahbelle

    Well, good for you

  • Arx

    You’re still here? I thought you were bored.

  • Midnight

    So, she was on bedrest during her baby shower?

  • Midnight

    My thoughts exactly

  • Midnight

    Is there something more to that statement? I’m not getting the kids part?

  • Midnight

    Wait? Did Swift have something to do w Beyoncé’s delivery? I’m confused.
