After the birth of my first child, I believed in the things society said about how my body should look. I put pressure on myself to lose all the baby weight in three months, and scheduled a small tour to assure I would do it. Looking back, that was crazy. I was still breastfeeding when I performed the Revel shows in Atlantic City in 2012. After the twins, I approached things very differently.

I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth to Rumi and Sir. I was swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month. My health and my babies’ health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the NICU. My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and a father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later. Today I have a connection to any parent who has been through such an experience. After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been major surgery. Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that. I needed time to heal, to recover. During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be. After six months, I started preparing for Coachella. I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol, and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too.

The Carters are officially on the run, and they have finished their first stop! The show was a success, and the fans are tweeting like crazy about how much they loved the show. Check out photos and videos (on our instagram) from the show and the full setlist.

Beyonce made the world stop again, early this morning, as she posted the first photos of the twins. The twins are finally here and the BeyHive couldn’t be more happy. Sir and Rumi Carter, a boy and a girl, are now 1 month home and made their debut on Beyonce’s instagram.

Beyonce was also spotted out and about, and just like last time, HER BODY IS EVERYTHING! Beyonce’s snapback game is something fierce. She was spotted in Malibu having dinner at Nobu on July 12, and then again leaving an event at Mack Sennett Studios in Los Angeles. Check out those photos on BeyoncePictures.Com!
