Beyonce has revealed she lost about 29kg after giving birth to her daughter.
In a new mini-documentary, the 32-year-old singer talks about her drive to lose weight after she and her husband Jay-Z welcomed Blue Ivy in January 2012.
In part four of her mini-documentary series Self-Titled, the singer says: "I was very aware of the fact that I was showing my body. I was 195 pounds when I gave birth, I lost 65 pounds, I worked crazily to get my body back. I wanted to show my body.
"I wanted to show that you can have a child and you can work hard and you can get your body back.
"I know finding my sensuality, getting back into my body, being proud of growing up, it was important to me that I expressed that in my music because there are so many women that feel the same thing after they give birth."
Jay-Z announced on December 3 - his 44th birthday - that he and Beyonce were beginning a 22-day vegan diet.
On Sunday the pair were spotted tucking into a seafood feast at Miami restaurant Seasalt and Pepper.
