The 37-year-old musician and filmmaker’s latest project profiles the life experiences leading up to her performance at last year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Beyoncé’s “Beyhive” has certainly been supportive of the Grammy-winning singer’s new Netflix movie. In the film, Beyoncé gives in-depth testimony of the health-related trials she endured after giving birth to twins in June 2017.
The Survivor hit maker also shares the four-month long training and conditioning process she underwent in order to prepare for the world-class performance she gave at Coachella last year. Beyoncé’s daunting task of re-entering the entertainment business was successfully completed less than one year after birthing twin babies.
The singer said the following in Homecoming:
“I got pregnant unexpectedly, and it ended up being twins, which was even more of a surprise. My body went through more than I knew it could. I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth. I had an extremely difficult pregnancy. I had high blood pressure. I developed toxemia, preeclampsia, and in the womb, one of my babies’ heartbeat paused a few times, so I had to get an emergency C-section.”
Beyoncé also shared details about the strict diet regimen she committed herself to during her process. She did it all while getting physically prepared for an intense place of contention back at the top of her game as a world-class performer.
She went on to add:
“In order for me to meet my goal, I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol. And I’m hungry. I definitely pushed myself further than I knew I could. And I’ve learned a very valuable lesson. I will never [laughs], never push myself that far again.”
