Beyoncé reveals emergency c-section during birth of twins

Beyoncé has revealed she had an emergency caesarean section when she delivered her twins.

The singer, in a series of essays in September's Vogue magazine, said she was 99kg and was swollen from toxemia. The 36-year-old said the twins spent many weeks in intensive care and her husband, Jay-Z, was "a strong support system".

She said she put pressure on herself to lose weight in the three months after the birth of her first child. But after the twins, she approached things differently.

Beyoncé said she has a "little mommy pouch" and she's in no rush to get rid of it.

She said it's important for her to help open doors for younger artists. Her photo is the first Vogue cover to be shot by an African-American photographer.

The fifty-ninth Grammys were all about two megastars: Adele and Beyonce.
