Beyonce: "Giving Birth Made Me Realize the Power of Being a ...

Beyonce has opened up on welcoming daughter Blue Ivy, revealing that the experience left her feeling empowered because she felt like she could “let go” for the first time. She believes her life is more interesting these days because her child gives it more substance than before and she even thinks her daughter woke her up to who she truly is:

“When I gave birth, that was the first time I truly let go and surrendered. And it taught me how amazing that feels… Giving birth made me realize the power of being a woman. I have so much more substance in my life. And expressing that excitement and that sensuality and the connection I have with my husband—I’m a lot more comfortable with that now. I actually feel like my child introduced me to myself.”

Commenting on those rumors that she faked her pregnancy and secretly had her child via surrogate, Beyonce says she was mostly worried about how her mother and others might be effected by hearing the silly rumors about someone close to them:

“I felt like I kind of had to protect my mother, because when people made up the silliest rumor about me not really being pregnant. She was there when I went through all of those things. And my sister. They were very, very defensive. It’s not personal to me, and it comes along with the job, but the lack of respect—people will just go too far sometimes.”

Speaking on her relationship with Jay-Z, Beyonce believes that those who are in relationships shouldn’t rely on someone else to gain self-worth. She says she has had an easy, simple relationship with her husband because the chemistry is just right between them:

“I was independent before I met my husband, and we have such a natural chemistry and a genuine relationship, and it’s based on the things that relationships are supposed to be based on. I’ve seen, growing up, when a woman or a man in a relationship—it doesn’t matter which one—doesn’t feel confident, they feel a bit trapped. Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.”
