Beyonce Reveals She Suffered from Preeclampsia During Pregnancy With Twins

Beyonce speaks candidly about having to undergo an emergency cesarean section to save her twins' lives. “I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth,” the 37-year-old singer recounts in the just-released concert documentary "Homecoming." “I had an extremely difficult pregnancy. I had high blood pressure, I developed toxemia, preeclampsia, and, in the womb, one of my babies' heartbeats paused a few times, so I had to get an emergency C-section.” Fortunately the twins, Rumi and Sir, arrived healthy.
