The ‘Single Ladies’ singer opens up about the tragic miscarriage she suffered before getting pregnant with baby Blue Ivy, and reveals it was the most traumatic event of her life. Read on for the shocking details.
Beyonce is now the proud mother to baby Blue Ivy, almost 13 months, but she opens up in her new HBO documentary Life is But a Dream, which premieres on Feb. 16, that she had been pregnant before — and it ended in tragedy.
“About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time,” Beyonce reveals in one scene of her documentary. “And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z, who wed in April 2008, were so excited to be parents.
“I picked out names,” Beyonce adds. “I envisioned what my child would look like . . . I was feeling very maternal.”

But when she went back for another checkup, she received horrible news.
“I flew back to New York to get my checkup — and no heartbeat,” she says in the documentary. “Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”
Beyonce: Writing New Music Was Therapy For My Miscarriage
“I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life,” she says in the movie. “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.”
Beyonce doesn’t reveal which song was inspired by her miscarriage, but she went on to say that being pregnant with Blue Ivy was that much more exciting.
“Being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” she gushes. “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.”
How brave of Beyonce to be so open and revealing in her documentary!
