Beyonce Knowles must have sensed a collective side eye from everyone who saw her towering in stilettos just days before giving birth to Blue Ivy Carter. LOL! Jay Z’s wife of four years comes clean about rocking five inch Louboutins while sporting a baby bump, being comfortable in fully mommy mode, and breastfeeding.
People’s Magazine Most Beautiful Woman unveils her sensitive side and admits she just wanted to feel good about herself throughout her pregnancy and vowed to stay in heels.
“I committed to the end and wore my kitten heels. It makes me laugh thinking about it,” she recalled. “But after many hours of labor, I didn’t care how I looked. It was all about the miracle that God gave me — the opportunity to deliver a human being.”
After birthing her beautiful Blue, some ideas the “Love On Top” singer had about feeling sexy aren’t the same.
“I never thought there would be a day when I wouldn’t wear heels. Now that I have a child, I walk around holding her all day, I’m buying loafers and oxfords. I love them, because they’re comfortable,” she says. “And shorter heels too. I’d always thought, ‘The higher the heel, the sexier.’ But now I’m like, ‘These are really sexy.’”
We’re sure that Jay cosigning her cute loafers is a plus too: “[Jay-Z] loves it when I wear flat shoes, which is surprising – he never saw me in flats before! He likes me more natural – just the relaxed, natural me.”
We may finally understand why Blue Ivy often appears out with a blanket over her head,
Though she’s over the hoopla of heels, the 30-year-old is delighted to have a handle on her weight which she credits to breastfeeding her three-month-old daughter for ten weeks.
“I’m proud that my waist came back so fast. … I had to get my tone back. I’m definitely softer,” she said. “But I feel my body bouncing back. Whatever was tight and muscular, like my legs, I’m seeing it come back. You just have to work at it.”
Bey seems so at peace with herself – it’s beautiful she’s willing to share this phase of her life with her fans.
