Beyoncé is opening up about how she conquered that baby weight in a new feature for the April 2013 issue of Shape magazine.
The 31-year-old entertainer who gave birth to her first daughter, Blue Ivy, talked with the magazine about the journey she took to lose the post-baby pounds, I gained 57 pounds when I was pregnant,” Bey said in a behind-the-scenes video. “I didn’t have a lot of time to lose the weight, because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again.”
“I’m not a person that is naturally very thin,” she adds. “I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape.”
“Not everyone is supposed to be the same,” she says. “Be healthy and take care of yourself, but be happy with the beautiful things that make you, you.”
Next month, Bey will hit the stage in Belgrade, Serbia as she kicks off her Mrs. Carter World tour.
