Forget Breathing Exercises, Beyonce Prepared For Blue Ivy’s Birth With Lip Gloss

By  | 

BeyonceYou know Beyonce would have to release some sound bite to top the Twitter trending birth of Maxwell Drew Johnson. The mother of Blue Ivy managed to bring some attention back to herself yesterday despite the monumental birth of Jessica Simpson‘s daughter, reminding everyone who the real diva of the maternity ward is.

As if Beyonce’s maternity suite wasn’t swank enough, imagine the Grammy winner decked out with freshly done hair and manicured feet and hands before getting ready to push:

“I did have a fresh eyebrow wax,” People‘s 2012 Most Beautiful Woman says with a laugh. “I got my nails done, I got my feet done, had my hair done, and I had my little lip gloss.”

Primping before birth certainly isn’t a rarity in this corner of the parenting blogosphere, as once your newborn arrives, your odds of making it to that weekly mani/pedi are a bit slimmer. But let it be known that while other women were turning bright red in that New York City hospital begging for ice chips, a few rooms away a “powerful” Beyonce was applying her lip gloss, checking her fresh wax, and putting those manicured feet into some stirrups — if you believe that she was pregnant that is.
