At least two former Destiny’s Child members agree: no one expected Beyonce to be the first to have a kid. Not because she wouldn’t be an amazing mom (“She has always had this motherly spirit about her,” LeToya Luckett gushes) or because she’d have any problem finding a great dad (“God made Jay for her,” raves Michelle Williams), but because Beyonce has always been a career woman first and foremost.
“We just never knew that she would be the first to have a baby or the first to get married because we always knew she had a focus that was…not human when it comes to her work,” Williams explained at the Essence Black Women In Music event. Said Luckett of her former band mate, “She’s a planner! Literally, I think she planned her whole life out. ‘At 30, I’m going to have a baby!’ Then at 30, she had a baby. That’s just Bey.” Then Williams imitated Bey doing crunches and breast-feeding at the same time. “We’re gonna do crunches, Boo Boo! Come on!,” Michelle joked. Ugh, why did Destiny’s Child ever break up?
Of course, there is one other thing Beyonce’s former band members could all agree on: Blue Ivy Carter is one amazing bundle of joy. “I know she’s going to be talented,” Luckett laughs. “She’s going to get the talent from somewhere. She can’t help it.” “Absolutely stunning,” Kelly Rowland declared at the Grammys. “They have such sweet little part of them both that they look at. It’s so gorgeous. That’s such a beautiful gift.” As to whether Jay-Z is changing diapers, however, Kelly laughs, “You’ll have to ask Bey that!” Please. As if Beyonce couldn’t do that too, on top of all those crunches.
