Beyoncé’s second pregnancy has been nothing short of spectacular. From that first announcement that had everyone going wild to her Grammy performance, Queen Bey has not shied away from the public while preparing for the arrival of her twins. As many people know, when a woman is pregnant, her body changes in all sorts of unexpected ways, but if you’re a celebrity (and sometimes even if you’re not), those changes are often scrutinized. And when a gossip site brought up Bey’s changing features during her pregnancy, her publicist decided that she’s had enough and responded to accusations that Bey’s had some work done (while pregnant!).
The site Gossip Cop jumped on Bey’s latest posts to her Instagram account, questioning if she’d had her lips filled. While Beyoncé’s team usually ignores everything said about the star, her publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, has had enough, and wrote a letter in support of Bey and pregnant women everywhere.
“Did you know that in addition to weight gain there is often a dramatic change in the blood flow in the system and increased fluid causing swelling? Do you know that it sometimes affects our speech, our ability to chew intently and a host of other things?” Noel-Schure wrote in her letter, adding, ““The sacrifice to our faces, our feet and our entire bodies is something we welcome because we bring beautiful humans into the world who will one day combat your hate and negativity.”
Talk about supporting pregnant women everywhere.
While the site has yet to comment on the rebuttal, Beyoncé continues to document her pregnancy through social media, and we’ll all anxiously await the arrival of the twins.
