The former First Daughter, like the rest of us, watched Bey’s Netflix documentary and was shocked when Queen Bey was shown FaceTiming Jay about fitting into a super body-hugging costume after giving birth to twins and his response was underwhelming at best.
“I said, ‘Marc, if that’s ever me, you better have more enthusiasm,’” Chelsea told her chief of staff, Bari Lurie, while being interviewed by The Cut just after Homecoming’s April release. “It wasn’t the ‘I’m so proud of you. That’s amazing’ that I arguably think any woman deserves, particularly someone who has clearly worked herself body, mind, heart, soul, and spirit to get to that place.”
She added, “Marc was like, ‘Duly noted.’ And I was like, ‘I bet every woman watching this has this sense of She deserves more enthusiasm. Marc was like, ‘I got it. Can we go back to watching it, please? We’ve talked about it three times in the last 90 seconds.’”
“The struggle is real,” Bari replied. “Men just don’t get it. Your body made this thing …”
“Two humans!” Chelsea shouted. “Anyway, I loved Homecoming.”
As fans know, shortly after welcoming her twins — Rumi and Sir Carter — via an emergency c-sectionin June 2017, Beyonce began her journey to Coachella. And when she was just 33 days out from her big show, she tried on one of her old costumes to see if all her hard work was paying off, and boy was she over the moon when she saw how her body fit in the glittery brown sequin bodysuit.
“Okay this is seriously a huge accomplishment because I didn’t think I would ever get into my old costume and I’m in it and I can still move,” she said before Facetiming her husband. “I still have a way to go this makes me feel good. I’ve sacrificed a lot, I’ve been working hard. Yay. I want to show Jay.”
“I’m back in my costume!” she told Jay over FaceTime. “Big deal! It’s zipped! Alright, just had to share.”
His response, a casual “All rightttt.”
