In her new HBO documentary, “Life Is But a Dream,” the 31-year-old mom opens up for the first time that she suffered through a miscarriage prior to being pregnant with Blue Ivy; “About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time,” she says. “And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life.”
Beyoncé was overjoyed and began to prepare; “I picked out names,” she continued. “I envisioned what my child would look like . . . I was feeling very maternal.”
Sadly, however, it was not meant to be; “I flew back to New York to get my check up — and no heartbeat,” she reveals. “Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”
While husband Jay-Z briefly referenced the tragic loss in his song ‘Glory,’ Beyoncé also turned to music to work through her pain; “I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life,” she said about a song that will reportedly be on her next album. “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.”
The documentary is set to air later on this month, but you can catch Beyoncé performing live this Sunday at the Super Bowl.
