Since Beyoncé announced that she and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child at MTV Video Music Awards in August, Beyoncé has endured numerous amounts of speculation and scandal concerning her pregnancy – and presumed lack thereof. Now, in her latest interview on ABC’s “20/20,” the pop star mom-to-be spills on the details of her pregnancy, including some interesting news about her alleged pregnancy cravings. Here are some of her best quotes from the interview.

On her decision to reveal her baby bump at the VMAs

“Physically I was starting to show, so it was only a matter of days before someone zoomed in. So I just wanted it to be from me, and I wanted it to be something that was a celebration of something so beautiful. And I didn’t want to release a picture or a statement. I figured the biggest statement was to — just be.”

On her reaction after her VMA reveal

“Honestly, I just felt free. I really did, because I’d been holding the most exciting thing in for so long, and I just felt like, Wow, now I can enjoy and now I can just experience this the way that every woman should. So I felt so liberated, and I felt like, Oh, I can breathe and be happy. And, you know, it was a beautiful feeling. … I went straight off the stage and just cried. I hugged my mom, I hugged Jay and just cried. It was a beautiful day.”

 

On why she won’t reveal the exact due date of her baby

“The truth is, it’s safety,” she explained. “I just want to make sure I can have a peaceful day. And I want to make sure my child is protected.”

 

On her lack of any wild pregnancy cravings

“Not really anything crazy.” She said, laughing off rumors that she put ketchup on everything and liked ice cream with hot chili sauce. “I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, ‘I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.’ And I’m like, That is absolutely disgusting, what are you doing? He’s like, ‘I read it on the internet.’”
