UPDATE: Beyonce's First Post-Pregnancy Interview Is Fake!
AccessHollywood is now reporting Beyonce's first "post-pregnancy" interview is fake. They spoke with Bey's rep to confirm.
“Completely made up,” the rep told Access.
When asked if the interview was legitimate, the rep responded, “absolutely not.”
However, when reached by Access Hollywood on Tuesday, an editor for the magazine said the publication stands by their story.
“It is not made up or fictitious at all. 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,” the Star UK editor told Access Hollywood.

Star Magazine is the first outlet to release quotes from what they say is Beyonce's first post-pregnancy interview.
The celeb-gossip based outlet released numerous quotes from the singer on their website. They also claim to have printed the full interview in their latest issue. Is it the real deal?
Beyonce: "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 clichés that is a real truth.”
“I am so excited. From the time I knew I was pregnant we have been parents. A child is the greatest gift you can receive, and we are so excited and blessed to be in this situation."
Beyonce on Jay-z as a father
"He would not have missed it for anything. He is a very protective and loyal guy by nature. He is a very protective husband, and since we found out I was pregnant I have seen the protective father in him. He is not only an inspirational artist, he is an inspirational husband. I know the next step on his journey is going to be being an inspirational father."
"He will change diapers, of course he will. He is going to be a very hands-on father. He has already said publicly that providing isn’t love. Love is being there. Love is doing the little things for your child."
Beyonce on the security controversy
"Security was very tight, but not just for the sake of it, it was for the security of our daughter. At home, she’ll be part of a normal, loving family with a loving mom, a loving dad, a loving aunt and loving grandparents, just like any other kid."
