Beyoncé is our modern-day superwoman for many reasons. She works hard, shows immense love to her fans, gives back and slays the game all around—every day. She’s also not afraid to be vulnerable about marriage, motherhood and what it takes to be a woman on top of her game, which we saw in her brand new Netflix documentary, Homecoming.
The mother of three walked us through the making of her epic 2018 Coachella performances while proving how hard she worked to get back in shape after a high-risk pregnancy and the birth of her twins, Sir and Rumi Carter.
The Grammy-winning singer went on a superstrict diet, powered through strenuous daily workouts and pushed herself to the max in order to put on the culture-infused performance of a lifetime. However, it wasn’t easy doing this while breastfeeding and trying to be present for her family, she admits in the documentary.
Every working mother out here knows how hard it can be to kill it at work while also trying to be a rock star mom. Hats off to Bey for speaking her truth on behalf of all the mamas out there!
Flip through the gallery and peep Beyoncé’s most relatable quotes about being a working mother and some adorable family moments we spotted in the documentary.
