Beyoncé Breastfeeds Blue Ivy In Public

Count Beyoncé among the celebrity moms who are proud to breastfeed in public.

When the new mom and husband Jay-Z took along daughter Blue Ivy, 7 weeks, for a casual lunch at Sant Ambroeus in NYC’s West Village last Saturday, the Bootylicious singer nursed her newborn at the table, an observer tells Us Weekly. Two additional sources confirm to the magazine that the first-time mom had been breastfeeding her daughter.

Beyoncé was seen leaving the eatery holding her newborn in a baby carrier wrapped in a blanket.

We spotted the mother-daughter duo the very next day; this time, Beyoncé held Blue in an exotic leopard-print wrap.

      How Awesome! Just another mother showing that breastfeeding IS natural. One day, it will not be such a big deal to nurse your child in public. Support mothers who choose to breastfeed and mothers who choose not to.

      This explains why Beyonce lost all the weight in so little time. Breastfeeding sure does help loose all the baby weight plus more in weeks. I gained 20 lbs with my first and only baby and had c section. At my 1 week checkup I had lost 22 lbs. I was always told how I looked amazingly skinny after just one week. Breast feeding helps burn alot of calories too bad my baby never latched (I pumped) so I quit after 3 weeks. Best of luck to Beyonce because obviously she has too many HATERS!

    good for her. breastfeeding is natural and should not be a big deal no matter who it is. more women should do it, and it should be readily accepted in public.

    YAY! Go Beyonce! So glad such a huge celebrity is publically nursing. If anyone can be an advocate for something and have a strong following, it will be Beyonce!

    Ok this is just plain creepy. An ‘observer’? Can’t a woman be left alone to feed her child without someone spouting off to the press?

    Those who say Beyonce had a surrogate and was never pregnant have absolutely no leg to stand on now. You don’t breastfeed a baby if you didn’t give birth. Somehow I think this proof may not even silence them because they refuse to believe what is obvious and true – Beyonce did give birth.

    First off this came fom US weekly not reliable , and really they new she was breast feeding how?

    Good grief…no one’s commending her for breastfeeding they’re just stating that she did.

    You can’t breastfeed a baby you didn’t have. There is no way she is carrying a baby in the picture above. Games

    Ok, guys, enough is enough. I feel that I can’t be silent anymore.
    Beyonce DID NOT give birth not now, not ever. I have a cousin who works at Lenox Hill Hospital where the baby was born. Beyonce just had a baby…via surrogate. End of the story.
    You can’t even find a single article that says – she gave birth. All they say, in a very politically correct way – she had a baby, they just omit ‘via surrogate’ part. That’s why closing off the whole floor, and paying off the medical personnel.
    As for nursing, no big mystery here. Even a grandma can breastfeed if she takes certain hormones. Lots and lots of women do that. Which Beyonce also did, and she was also seeing a lactation specialist.
    As for leaking these stories to the press, Beyonce and Jay-Z are happy to do it themselves to ‘prove’ once again, that she WAS actually pregnant and GAVE birth.
    So, she hired a surrogate, it’s ok, many people do that. But why so many lies? Nicole Kidman did it, and was open and honest about it, and also gracious enough to thank their gestational carrier.
    It looks like not everybody is so gracious…

      Okay I usually don’t comment but this post is a delusional mess period lmao.

      And to the poster below me, “planted?” as opposed to the millions of other sightings Us Weekly writes about?

      For goodness sakes leave this woman and her family alone. She had a beautiful baby girl that she gave birth to that is all that matters. Beyoncé had had a miscarriage in the past, which is why she waited to reveal being pregnant in the first place. There is no reason for her to lie about it, nothing to gain. Seriously people get a freaking clue.

      @Anonymous- Oh, you just can’t be silent about this any longer, huh? Your “cousin” knows all the details and you’re here to break the silence? Beyonce saw a Lactation Specialist, wow! Spare us, please! Did you know that it’s routine for the vast majority of new moms to see Lactation Specialist after giving birth? I actually had to with both of my kids and no surrogate gave birth to them. Also, gotta tell you, your story is flawed. My husband’s crew worked on set with Beyonce on the production of the Countdown video and another project and sorry but Beyonce was in fact pregnant. Also, all the die hard fans can see that her shape has changed since giving birth. It’s too bad she has so many haters and low down people trying to give her a bad name because she’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. My ex’s buddy knows Ms Nicole Kidman and she’s not someone I’d label as “gracious”. Go spread rumors somewhere else.

    This story seems planted. I don’t buy it.

    I guess this leaked story is meant to show us that she birthed that child. Sorry Bea, you need more proof than that.

    I don’t buy it either. That just doesn’t seem like something Beyonce would do.

    The people who think she didn’t give birth are just the new form of Birthers. First it was the president, now it’s Beyonce. I wouldn’t pay them any mind.

    However, I really don’t believe she was breastfeeding in public. She’s an incredibly private person and it doesn’t jive with how she’s always behaved.

    Nope, still don’t believe she gave birth to their baby. The ‘baby bump’ that grew and shrunk and folded, the closing off of the whole hospital floor so no one could see anything and now someone ‘saw’ her breastfeeding. Smoke screen. Even if she was breastfeeding, like others have said it is possible to not give birth and breastfeed. I think that they are sooo afraid of people finding out that she didn’t give birth, but why? Who cares how your baby got here, just be happy she did.

      “Who cares how your baby got here”

      Well, you seem to care an awfully lot.

      • Anonymous

        Let me help you understand how to read the sentence…Beyonce should not care how she got her baby, but just be happy to have her. So if indeed someone else did carry her baby…that is nothing to be ashamed of. Not sure how else to make the meaning clearer?? Simple sentence reading and understanding.

          No, let ME help YOU. You have no proof that this woman was not pregnant. You have no proof that she didn’t give birth. Yet you continue to post this nonsense as if it’s fact.

          Beyonce is CLEARLY happy to have her baby. From all factual evidence in play, she has nothing to be ashamed of, so your entire post was simply…. stupid.

    One of the things that make me question if she actually gave birth is that she never posed for a magazine with her pregnant belly showing. That seems like something she would totally do. They love attention and being in the spotlight, so if she really was pregnant she would have definately been on the cover of a magazine baring it all.

    Beyonce had her baby, she not a stick thin like Nicole who because of bad eating habit can’t conceived. Beyonce have eaten correctly. Wouldn’t you be upset if people lied about you? Beyonce breast is very large I wish the lies about her stop. Beyonce is a fit normal weight woman. surrogate my Azz!!! I hope Beyonce sue Wendy Williams and anyone else who lied about her.

    they ( celebrities ) are all weird and RICH beyond our comprehension
    is it within their realm to stage a pregnancy?
    I beleive it

  19. SMH

    It would take a lot more time, energy and effort to fake a pregnancy esp in the public eye. Although I do find the fact that she had this baby so quickly and that her stomach never looked really pregnant I still don’t think it was faked. Remember when everyone assumed Katie Holmes was never pregnant with Suri bc her stomach one day would be small next day big then small again? I just think it’s nearly impossible to pull it off without something factual being leaked!

  20. Courtney

    most nursing moms have to do so in public someetimes. besides tall women like Beyonce 5’7″ or Katie Holmes 5’9″ & Melissa Newman 5’11” ect show pregnancy differently than someone like say Jessica Simpson who is 5’3.5″ Nicole Richie who is 5’1″ or Judy Garland who was 4’11.5″ some women when pregnant retain almost no water so they don’t get the huge belly and others have complications that cause half or nearly half their weight gain to be retained water Mariah Carey when she had her twins last year for example gained 82lbs 40lbs of which was water weight due to swelling for near deadly complications and 42lbs was normal pregnancy weight and each of her twins though born 5 weeks early weighed over 6lbs at birth

    Wow, I think I’ve never read such a long essay without a period in it. Sick

    Cool! Public breastfeeding is still so stigmatised, it’s great that someone as high profile as Beyonce is doing it unashamedly. It’s so sad that women are still embarrassed to BF publicly because of the way society treats them.

    yeah u cant see the baby but u see her breastfeeding ha ha

    When I look at the picture it looks like she’s just holding a baby or whatever close to her, “not breast feeding”. I also bet that if this isn’t the so called breastfeeding picture they’re talking about, do you really think Mrs. B is going to whip out a breast in front of potential people waiting to get a snap? As freakin ugly as Jaz Z is, this baby looks EXACTLY like my best friends baby and she is Mexican. Blue Ivy looks NOTHING like Jay Z. The baby doesn’t even look like she has black in her at all. He’s is too dark or that baby to not have “Some” black features. If I could put my hispanic friends baby’s picture here, they look like twins.

    This is all fake. Beyonce hid her baby bump for the entire pregnancy and now want to breastfeed in public!!!!!! For someone who loved to show skin, I expected to see a picture of her baby bump on the cover of some magazine like other celebrities. Now to cover up the rumors of her NOT being pregnant, she decided to breastfeed in public. Anyhow can do that with the help of lactose induced medication and by preparing your breast even before the baby arrives. All the info is on the internet just google it.

    Where there’s smoke, there’s fire….. Why would people even start talking about a fake pregnancy in the first place? She must have done something to raise alarms. Jessica simpson, demi moore, whoever else who was pregnant while being in the spotlight never had to deal with these rumours as far as I know. They started these rumours because something suspicious was happening and probably someone, somehow knew what the deal was and leaked this information. Something like this cannot be kept hidden forever. The entire hospital floor??? Come on…. and now they even ‘leak’ information about the normaly very véry private beyonce, that she is breastfeeding in public? It’s just fishy…. and the kid really doesn’t look like them either. at all.

    Jay Z is damn near 50 not 40…my bad!
