Her challenge: Baby lost heartbeat
In her documentary, Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream, the superstar revealed that she suffered a miscarriage two years earlier. "I flew back to New York to get my checkup – and no heartbeat," she explained. "Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine." A year later, she and husband Jay-Z were blessed with a baby girl, Blue Ivy. "So many people go through it, and in the end, I have my daughter," she said on Oprah's Next Chapter. "There is hope. I feel so fortunate."
