Beyonce‘s new documentary may be called Life Is But A Dream, but in the upcoming HBO special, the 31-year-old singer opens up about her life’s most tragic moment.
Although Beyonce is sitting on top of the world as the happy wife to rapper Jay-Z and mother to Blue Ivy, she admits that she suffered a miscarriage that turned her blue skies gray.”About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time,” the Grammy Award-winning singer confesses in the documentary. “And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like…I was feeling very maternal.”
Sadly, it was a heartbeat she would never hear again. “I flew back to New York to get my check up—and no heartbeat,” Beyonce recalled. “Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”
Jay-Z addressed the couple’s loss on the track “Glory” rhyming, “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear/But nah, baby, you magic.” And, the miscarriage inspired Beyonce to navigate through her emotions in song. “I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life,” she said. “And, it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”
As we know, Beyonce would go on to give birth to Blue Ivy one year later. “Being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” she said about her daughter, who she gave birth to last January. “You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so, of course, you want to scream it out and tell everyone.’
