London: Beyonce Knowles has revealed that before giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy, she underwent a thorough beauty session.
“I did have a fresh eyebrow wax,” the Mirror quoted her as telling People magazine.
“I got my nails done, I got my feet done, had my hair done and I had my little lip gloss.
“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. I barely recognised myself. But after many hours of labour I couldn’t care less about anything but my child. I didn’t care how I looked,” she said.
The 30-year-old singer also said that she lost most of her baby pounds from feeding Blue Ivy.
“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,” she said.
“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,” she added.
