“My body went through more than I knew it could. I was supposed to do Coachella the year prior, but I got pregnant unexpectedly. And it ended up being twins, which was even more of a surprise. In the womb, one of my babies’ hearts paused a few times, so I had to get an emergency C-section. …I had to rebuild my body from cut muscles. It took me a while to feel confident… [Coachella was] my first time back home on the stage after giving birth; I’m creating my own homecoming, and it’s hard. 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. In the beginning, it was so many muscle spasms and just, internally, my body was not connected. My mind was not there. My mind wanted to be with my children. What people don’t see is the sacrifice. I would dance, and go off to the trailer, and breastfeed the babies, and the days I could, I would bring the children.”

Beyoncé, in her new Netflix documentary Homecoming, about preparing for her 2018 Coachella performance shortly after the birth of her twins, Rumi and Sir.
