"I did a show three months after I gave birth, which was really crazy. I had clearly never giving birth and know I would gain 60 pounds," she said.

Asked by Oprah Winfrey during an interview: "Is that how much you gained," the singer clarified: "57 lbs."

She continued: "But I really wanted to know and I feel so fortunate to do my job. I love my job, I love singing – I love the way it feels."
