    Beyoncé revealed that when she got pregnant with first child, daughter Blue Ivy, born in January, she felt unrecognizable due to her weight gain.

    Bey added 50 lbs. to her curvy frame while Blue was in utero.

    The diva said, "I didn’t feel that I looked beautiful during birth – but who does? After being pumped with all those fluids and gaining so much weight, with my swollen lips and cheeks, I barely recognized myself. I tried my best to roller-set my hair, and I wore my gloss when I arrived at the hospital. I committed to the end and wore my kitten heels. It makes me laugh thinking about it."

    She continued, "But after many hours of labor, I didn’t care how I looked. It was all about the miracle that God gave me – the opportunity to deliver a human being." Great 'tood, Bey!

    Bey has had to work -hard!- to get her pre-Blue body back, saying, "I'm proud that my waist came back so fast… I had to get my tone back. I’m definitely softer. But I feel my body bouncing back. Whatever was tight and muscular, like my legs, I’m seeing it come back. You just have to work at it."

    She also dismissed the rumor that has retained the services of a live-in trainer.

    What is your favorite Beyonce song? Do you like the name Blue Ivy?
