( – Pop singer and actress Beyonce Knowles said that in her first pregnancy a couple years ago she heard the baby’s heartbeat and it “was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life.”

Beyonce discusses that first pregnancy, which ended in a miscarriage, in an HBO documentary, Life Is But A Dream, premiering later this month, details of which were disclosed in Us Weekly on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1.

Beyonce relates that the miscarriage was the “saddest thing I’ve ever been through,” and then comments on her second (and successful) pregnancy and birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012.

“There’s something so relieving about life taking over you like that,” she said. “You’re playing a part in a much bigger show and that’s what life is, it’s the greatest show on earth. … I felt like God was giving me a chance to assist in a miracle.”

She also said, “Being pregnant was very much like falling in love. You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you so, of course, you want to scream it out and tell everyone.”

“It’s the most powerful thing you can do in your life," she said,  "and especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean that much more. … A child, you don’t play around with that.”
