Beyoncé Opened Up About Her 'Extremely Difficult Pregnancy' And Emergency C-Section

Beyoncé is one of the most iconic singers performing today, but when it comes to her family life, the pop star is extremely private.

For the first time, Beyoncé has revealed the struggle she had with her second pregnancy back in 2017, and detailed some of the scary conditions she faced as she prepared to welcome her twins.

This mama proved she was a true survivor and got through her difficult pregnancy and delivery.

Beyoncé announced that she was expecting twins in this iconic Instagram photo back in February 2017.

The news came as a complete surprise to fans and Beyoncé's family. She had previously revealed that she suffered a miscarriage before the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy, in 2012.

Twins Rumi and Sir Carter, thankfully arrived safe and sound in June 2017.

The twins are almost two-years-old now, but Beyoncé and Jay-Z have largely kept them out of the public's eye since the announcement of their birth.

Now, in her new Netflix special "Homecoming", Beyoncé gives fans a few glimpses of the twins and opened up about her pregnancy.

She revealed that the pregnancy was very hard on her and that she suffered from a number of medical complications. The day she gave birth, Beyoncé weighed about 218 lbs.

"I had an extremely difficult pregnancy. I had high blood pressure. I developed toxemia, preeclampsia," she said.

She also details how she had to undergo an emergency C-section to deliver the twins.

"And in the womb, one of my babies’ heartbeat paused a few times, so I had to get an emergency C-section,” she said.

Thankfully, mom and babies had a healthy delivery but Beyoncé said because of the pregnancy, "My body went through more than I knew it could.”

We're so glad everyone is doing well now!

A year after giving birth to the twins, Beyoncé headlined Coachella with the jaw-dropping concert documented in Homecoming. Be sure to add it to your Netflix queue ASAP!
