Beyoncé only gave birth to her first baby, Blue Ivy, one year ago, but the new mom is back and hotter than ever.
The sexy star graces the February cover of GQ Magazine, where she shows some serious skin to prep fans for her performance at football’s biggest showdown— the Super Bowl.
Jay-Z’s other half can be seen wearing a powder blue, cropped football jersey that reveals her toned midriff, which she paired with skimpy, animal-print underwear and a thin belly chain.
Bey’s toned bod is a testament to her rigid post-baby workouts, which the star has openly discussed since having her first child.
"I counted calories," the 31-year-old admitted after giving birth last year. "I worked out maybe three to four times a week."
And it shows! But, surprisingly, the singer credits her most effective method of weight loss to breast feeding. "It's just so good for the baby and good for yourself,” she said.
Not only will Beyoncé's GQ feature delve into the details of her highly-anticipated Feb. 3 halftime show, but the star is also being honored as one of the magazine's "100 Sexiest Women of the 21st Century."
