Everyone in the free world knows that Beyonce is expecting her first child at the age of 30. While Bey has certainly mastered the art of pop divadom and of hitting the highest of notes while looking like a supermodel, Bey has a lot to learn when it comes to motherhood. While we’re sure her maternal instincts will take over once Baby Bey or Baby Z (the baby daddy is hubby Jay-Z) arrives, she is reportedly stocking up on advice in advance, asking her friendGwyneth Paltrow for pointers!
Paltrow, mom to Apple, 7, and Moses, 5, with rocker hubby Chris Martin of Coldplay, has been advising Beyonce on which food supplements to consume in order to ensure that her pregnancy is as healthy as possible.
Oh No They Didn’t reports (via Closer) that a source said “Gwyneth has known about this pregnancy for over a month and has been telling Beyonce to drink a shot of wheatgrass each morning and to rub her belly with coconut oil to prevent stretch marks.”
In addition to the wheatgrass and coconut oil, Gwynnie suggested an hour’s worth of daily meditation and soaking her feet in ice water to avoid swelling. She also sent the singer a parcel of energy crystals. The Closer source also commented that Beyonce is even a bit overwhelmed by how much advice Paltrow is doling out, saying, “Beyonce knows Gwyneth is just trying to show how much she cares, but her advice can be a little overwhelming. She’s sending packages of herbs and vitamins – but Beyonce wants to do things her own way, what suits her best and not be told what to eat.”
Paltrow has been dabbling in singing this past year, so maybe Bey can return the favor with some music industry advice!
