Beyonce reveals the secret to her bootylicious post-baby body

Superstar and new mum Beyonce kicked of her return to the stage with a show stopping performance at the weekend.  

Beyonce took to the stage, just four months after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy, at the Revel Resort and Casino Atlantic City, US.  The star, who is known for her daring fashion sense, looked fabulous in a series of custom-made costumes as she revealed to fans the secret to her fabulous post pregnancy figure.

“I gotta say, it feels so good to be back home on stage,” Beyonce told her fans, reports Us Weekly.

Jay-Z’s other half shared with fans how she prepared for her return to the stage and what she’s been doing to shed around 28kg of baby weight.

“Y’all have no idea how hard I worked,” Beyonce said. “I had to lose 60 pounds. They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!”

Beyonce revealed to fans that after all her hard work preparing for the concerts she’d be rewarding herself with a well-deserved treat.

The singer joked, with a phrase from Adam Sandler’s film Grown Ups: “Now tonight I’m gonna get chocolate wasted!”

Beyonce, who hasn’t performed for 9 months, revealed that even A-list celeb mums aren’t immune to back to work nerves. The star opened up, in a video on her official website, about how nervous she was about her return to performing.

"It is exciting. I feel a little nervous," she says. "I'm enjoying being a mother so it's like going back to my old job. It is a little strange, but it's important that you don't lose yourself, still have your own passions,” Beyonce said.

It’s good to know that even celeb mums feel nervous about returning to work after maternity leave, and they like a cheeky bit of choccy as much as we do!
