The pop queen and and husband Jay-Z sharing three baby frogs: Daughter Blue Ivy Carter, born in 2012 and twins Rumi Carter and Sir Carter, born in 2017.
In his 2013 HBO documentary Life But A Dream, Beyonce recalls learning that she had a miscarriage, where no symptoms were identified before an ultrasound or doppler was sadly discovered.
“Literally, last week, I went to the doctor. Everything was fine,” he said. “But there’s no heartbeat.”
Beyonce poured her heart and sorrow into her work, writing and recording the 2013 ballad “Heartbeat.”
“I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life,” according to the singer in the documentary. “It’s the best form of therapy for me because it’s one of the saddest things I’ve ever been through.”
Beyonce said later Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter, “I feel like I’ve had a lot of couples go through this and it’s a big part of my story.”
Her experience also influenced her next pregnancy. She continued, “It’s one of the reasons I don’t share that I’m pregnant a second time. [with Blue Ivy], because you don’t know what’s going to happen. That was hard because everyone in my family, my friends knew and we celebrated. It’s hard. I’m not the only person who’s been through this. A lot of people have been through this and in the end, I have my daughter, and there is hope and I feel that I am blessed. “
The singer said she lived in fear as she became pregnant with Blue Ivy. “But my doctor told me I was healthy and not crazy and paranoid and could live my life,” he said, “and that’s what I did.”
In 2019, Beyoncé said in a Q&A on IT magazine, “Getting pregnant taught me that I had to mother myself before I could be a mother to others. Then I had Blue, and the search for my purpose deepened even more. I died and reborn in my relationship, and The search for myself became stronger.It was hard for me to back off.Being ‘number one’ was no longer my priority.My real victory was to make art and a legacy to live before me. That’s satisfying. “
