The megastar opened up to the mag about using visualizations while giving birth, surrogacy rumours, having more kids, and her hopes for her now-13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy.
Here are some interesting snippets!
On using visualization to help get through the pain of giving birth:
“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 the surrogacy rumours:
“That was very odd. Who even thinks that? Like, who would make that up.… You can’t take it too seriously.”
On wanting Blue to have a normal childhood:
“At some point 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…. School visits and lemonade stands and all that stuff. It’s very important to me.”
On having another child:
“I definitely want another, but I don’t know when.”
