Beyoncé will be in the April issue of SHAPE magazine.

Did you know that Beyonce gained 57 pounds while she was pregnant with Blue Ivy Carter?

Beyonce explained how she incorporated dance into her work-out routine to lose the 57 pounds she gained while pregnant with Blue Ivy.

“I gained 57 pounds when I was pregnant. I didn’t have a lot of time to lose the weight, because I scheduled a show three months after I gave birth, which I would never do again,” Knowles says in the minute-and-a-half video clip. “I’m not a person that is naturally very thin. I am a person that has to work at keeping my body in shape,” she goes on to say, adding that dance is what keeps her active.

The 31 year-old singer also explained how she keeps her body slim and trim on a regular basis.

But while “it’s really really hard to lose your baby weight, because you don’t always have the time,” as Kraft admits, it’s easy to work it into your lifestyle the way Beyoncé does, she says. “She’s not setting the bar too high, she’s helping everyone feel like they can get there.”
