Beyonce's unusual childbirth: 'Blue Ivy and I talked to each other'

Beyonce has appeared on the cover of US Vogue's March issue, telling the mag about the not-quite-ordinary birth of her daughter Blue Ivy Carter more than a year ago.

The 31-year-old revealed that she and unborn baby “communicated” with one another through the delivery.

"I felt very maternal around eight months, and I thought I couldn't become any more until I saw the baby," Beyonce said. "But it happened during my labour because I had a very strong connection with my child."

"I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn't think about my own pain. We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication ... It was the best day of my life."

And it looks like baby Blue might have a brother or sister to join her in the near future.

"When I was younger, there were moments where I said, 'I'm not going to have children', and then moments when I wanted four," Beyonce told the mag. “And now I definitely want another, but I don't know when."

To those rumours that she faked her pregnancy, Beyonce had this to say: "Who even thinks that? Like, who would make that up ... You can't take it too seriously."

Meanwhile, while most Grammys-goers would be hiding their hungover heads under the sheets or behind dark shades the day after the music industry's night of nights, Bey looked fresh-faced and fabulous the morning after.

Bey went out to lunch in LA with husband Jay-Z, sister Solange and friends.

The 'Love On Top' singer was dressed casually in a patterned Dolce and Gabbana zip-up jacket and leather trousers, while her sister wore bright red lipstick and a striped polo shirt.

It was a bit of a change from their glammed-up red-carpet looks the night before, Solange in a sparkling emerald gown with a thigh high split and Beyonce rocking a geometric jumpsuit.

Beyonce's understated awards outfit choice was an elegant contrast to her startling fame and recent heights of exposure.

Following an acclaimed performance at the Super Bowl, she is about to release a self-produced documentary titled Beyonce: Life is But A Dream, which will air on US network HBO on February 16, and will sit down for an interview with Oprah that same day.
