Beyoncé was grateful to her husband of 10 years, Jay-Z, who stood by her all through the birth. In her words,
“He was a soldier and such a strong support system for me. I am proud to have been a witness to his strength and evolution as a man, a best friend, and a father. I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later.”

She revealed that her body did not feel the same way after the entire process, and it took a lot of time for her heal.
After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been a major surgery. Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery.
I am not sure everyone understands that. I needed time to heal, to recover,' she explained.
Things for the star were not only difficult physically, but also emotionally. She revealed sincerely that giving herself self-love and self-care helped her mentally during the recovery process. She had to accept what her body wanted.
Queen Bey had a message for both men and women after the photo shoot with her babies, especially regarding the sometimes rigid standards we place on ourselves.
I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies, and that’s why I stripped away the wigs and hair extensions and used little makeup for this shoot.
