Beyoncé recently opened up about how she wasn't expecting twins and how much she struggled during her second pregnancy.
We often view celebrities as untouchable. More than mere mortals capable of handling anything the world throws at them. Some are so famous that it is almost hard to fathom them even existing in the real world. If we pass them in the street or out in the world, it's almost as if we are experiencing a glitch in the matrix.
Shockingly, they are actually real people with thoughts and feelings. However, the ability of some famous moms to recover and return to normal following pregnancy only makes them seem less human. The truth is, most famous women go through the same things as everyone else during pregnancy and after having their children, we just don't see it. Beyoncé recently shone a big light on that.

During Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé, the iconic singer tells all about her most recent pregnancy. Beyoncé gave birth to twin boys during the summer of 2017. Due to the timing of Sir and Rumi's arrival, she had to plan what would be an iconic Coachella performance at the same time. Having a baby is hard. Having two is obviously harder. Having twins while preparing for the performance of your life? We can't even imagine.
"What people don’t see is the sacrifice. I would dance, and go off to the trailer, and breast-feed the babies, and the days I could, I would bring the children," Beyoncé explains during the doc. She also went in-depth into something almost all women struggle with after giving birth, feeling normal again. "There were days that I thought I’d never be the same. I’d never be the same physically, my strength and endurance would never be the same."
While it is nice to be reminded that celebrities are humans too from time to time, it is also hard not to sympathize with Beyoncé at the same time. There's every chance that struggling moms and pregnant women will hear what she has to say and will feel more hopeful about their own situations. The confirmation that someone as iconic and loved as Beyoncé has been through the same thing can be inspiring to some.
