Prepare to have your world rocked: Beyoncé can't do everything.

Go ahead, take a moment.

Actually, take a whole day to sit in front of the shrine you've built for her next to your bed, light a Beyoncé-shaped candle, and reflect if you need to.

Beyoncé may have sent haters to the left, to the left when they tried to say she couldn't sing the national anthem live, but what she's not refuting this time, however, is that when she gained the weight while pregnant, she gained the weight. According to CelebrityBabyScoop, not even Beyoncé was ready for all that jelly.

"I did a show three months after I gave birth, which was really crazy," she tells Oprah with a laugh during their "Oprah's Next Chapter" sit-down interview airing this Sunday, admitting pregnancy was a lot harder than she expected.

"I had clearly never given birth, and I didn't know that I would gain 60 pounds." The self-proclaimed perfectionist then corrects herself: "57 pounds," to be exact.

There you have it, for the first time ever, Beyoncé admitting she's not a goddess immune to human struggles, but a mortal who also packs on the pounds as do other pregnant women. The date is February 15, 2013. Remember it.

And if you thought the singer instantly bounced back into her bootylicious self half-an-hour after giving birth to Blue Ivy, the post-baby weight just vanishing into the thin air of the maternity ward surrounded by an aural glow because she's Beyoncé, you'd be mistaken. Yes, she's the queen, but she's still only one person and had to work to get back to her curvaceous figure. But as this quote shows, nothing gets in the way of Beyoncé, not even a fierce 57-pounds of herself.
