“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.”
On who Blue Ivy resembles
“She looks like Blue. She’s her own person.”
On the best part of being a new mother
“The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.”
