Beyonce recently spokoe with Vogue about becoming a mother and its effect on her career, plus more. Check out some highlights below, as well as the video from her Vogue photo shoot:
On her pregnancy: "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 giving birth: "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 Blue Ivy's effect on her career: "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...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."
