Beyonce’s baby Blue Ivy Carter taught her mother what really matters in this world isn’t looking pretty; it’s the miracle of birth. Like many women, Bey suffered from some self conscious issues when it was time for her to deliver Blue Ivy. In fact, the usually beautiful singer wanted to maintain that beauty to the best of her ability.
Beyonce said, “I didn’t feel that I looked beautiful during birthÂ—but who does?”
However, she did try.
She added, “After being pumped with all those fluids and gaining so much weight, with my swollen lips and cheeks, I barely recognized myself. I tried my best to roller-set my hair and I wore my [lip] gloss when I arrived at the hospital. I committed to the end and wore my kitten heels! It makes me laugh thinking about it,” she said. “But after many hours of labor, I didn’t care how I looked. It was all about the miracle that God gave meÂ— the opportunity to deliver a human being.”
That’s usually the way things go for a woman who tries to look picture perfect during delivery. They come in with ruby lips and their hair set only to realize those things were never that important to begin with. Once the hard part started, Beyonce was only able to concentrate on Blue Ivy Carter. In the end, her baby was what really mattered just as it should have been.
