Beyonce opens up about losing her first baby

US Pop diva Beyonce has finally spoken about her tragic miscarriage two years ago, before she conceived 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter with rapper husband Jay-Z.

Beyonce, 31, opened up about her maternal anguish in Life Is But A Dream, a new documentary set to debut on HBO this month.

She recalled: "I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like."

But a week after that, she was given the devastating news. Naturally, she turned to music for healing. Said Beyonce: "It was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me."
