Beyoncé is known for leaving her private life private. However, in the upcoming HBO documentary, “Life Is But A Dream,” she opens up about her miscarriage.
“About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time,” Beyoncé says in the documentary airing February 16th.
“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.”
Tragically, the singer was given awful news early on in the pregnancy.
“I flew back to New York to get my check up — and no heartbeat,” she reveals. “Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”
“I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life,” she said, leaving the song title a mystery. “And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”
Beyoncé goes on to explain the feeling of finding out that you are pregnant.
“Being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” she said. “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.”
The singer isn’t the only one that found solace in music.
“Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear/But nah baby you magic,” Jay-Z rapped in the song, “Glory.”
