Chelsea Clinton Calls Out Jay-Z for His Reaction to Beyonce's Baby Weight Loss

Chelsea Clinton is calling out Jay-Z for his reaction to Beyonce‘s post-baby body milestone in her Netflix documentary Homecoming.

If you remember, Beyonce works hard in the documentary to fit into one of her Coachella outfits shortly after welcoming twins Rumi and Sir. During a FaceTime call, Beyonce excitedly tells Jay-Z she fit back into her outfit, and he doesn’t seem all that enthusiastic.

“I said, ‘Marc, if that’s ever me, you better have more enthusiasm,’” Chelsea told The Cut about the moment in the documentary that she discussed with her husband Marc. “It wasn’t the ‘I’m so proud of you. That’s amazing’ that I arguably think any woman deserves, particularly someone who has clearly worked herself body, mind, heart, soul and spirit to get to that place.”

“And I was like, ‘I bet every woman watching this has this sense of, She deserves more enthusiasm,’” she added. “Marc was like, ‘I got it. Can we go back to watching it, please? We’ve talked about it three times in the last 90 seconds.’”

Chelsea and Marc just welcomed their third child together and you can find out his name here.
