In a tell-all interview with US magazine People, that crowned the star 'the world's most beautiful woman' the singer revealed that being a mum has bought out a more 'relaxed, natural me'. The star is wearing flats for the first time, 'Now that I have a child, I walk around holding her all day, I'm buying loafers and oxfords. I love them, because they're comfortable.' And it's not just B who finds flats more appealing, '[Jay-Z] loves it when I wear flat shoes, which is surprising - he never saw me in flats before! He likes me more natural.'
The singer has also taken a more relaxed approach to her beauty regime, admitting that rather than booking in with an expensive stylist, she has been cutting her own hair, 'I recently cut two inches myself - I just parted it in the middle and chh-chh-chh!'
What isn't low maintenance however, is her diet and exercise regime post-pregnancy. Beyoncé revealed how breast-feeding baby Blue has helped her lose 'the bulk' of her pregnancy weight, but she's now on a strict protein-based diet. As for exercise, as well as all that walking and baby carrying, she is also working out three times a week for 90 minutes doing a combination of dancing, running and crunches. 'I'm definitely softer, but I feel my body bouncing back,' she says.
