Beyonce is a strong, candid woman, but this is the first time she's spoken publicly about this!
"About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time.
And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life…
I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like…I was feeling very maternal."
Beyonce was completely ready for motherhood. Unfortunately, something tragic happened. She says:
"I flew back to New York to get my checkup—and no heartbeat. Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat."
So sad! The news might destroy a lot of people. But this is Beyonce. She says:
"I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I've ever written in my life. And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album.
And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I've ever been through."
We can't even imagine how painful that must have been. But we're glad you had such a beautiful outlet through which to pay tribute.
Despite all the joy your music has brought us over the years, we've never been happier to know you had it. We're with you, Bey!
