Beyoncé Knowles clearly adores being a family woman. The singer gave birth to her and husband Jay-Z’s first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January, and she is already planning to have more babies. She said: ‘I definitely want to have more. I don’t know how many. God knows, I don’t know yet.’
But in the meantime, Beyoncé is gearing up to make a career comeback. The Single Ladies hitmaker added: ‘I’ve been rehearsing, I have a show coming up and it’s my first show in a year. I have such a full life. I feel like now I know the reason that I was born.’ Beyoncé has certainly bounced back after giving birth four months ago and showed off her trim figure at the Met Costume Institute Gala in New York in a Givenchy Haute Couture dress. The sheer theatrical creation featured a purple feathered tail as long as a wedding dress train.
She recently revealed breast-feeding and a strict diet and exercise regime helped her to shift the extra pounds put on during her pregnancy. She explained: ‘I lost most of my weight from breast-feeding and I encourage women to do it; it’s just so good for the baby and good for yourself. ‘I counted calories. I worked out maybe three to four times a week. I did a lot walking in the beginning and now I’m running. But I had to work my way up. I couldn’t just go right from being pregnant to running.’
