Beyonce's first post-baby interview: Is it real?

Jan 17, 2012 at 9:46 p.m. ET

Beyonce is talking about what it's like to be a mom just a little over a week after the birth of her baby Blue Ivy -- at least, that's what one magazine claims. Is the interview real?

BeyonceStar UK claims they have the exclusive first interview with Beyonce about her new baby Blue Ivy -- but Beyonce's camp says that is total BS.

In the piece published by the British mag, they claim Beyonce told them, "Nothing can describe the feeling. You have the instant connection once you know your child is growing inside you, but when you hold it for the first time, the words can't be found."

"It's an old cliche that the thing expectant moms look forward to the most is holding their child in their arms for the first time, but it's one of those cliches that is a real truth."

"I am so excited. From the time I knew I was pregnant we have been parents," Star claims she said.

"A child is the greatest gift you can receive, and we are so excited and blessed to be in this situation."

How profound, right? Except Beyonce's camp said no such interview ever took place.

"Completely made up," her rep told Access Hollywood, denying any legitimacy to the article.

Star UK takes exception to that. "It is not made up or fictitious at all," the magazine's editor said. "We bought the interview from a reporter in the U.S. who conducted the interview with Beyonce before the birth. The reporter then obtained the 'top-up' info after the birth, which we believe to have been signed off by a girl on her LSM team."

So is it real or not? Until and unless Beyonce speaks for herself, we might never know -- but judging by how notoriously private she and Jay-Z are about their life together, we're leaning toward no.
