Beyonce Knowles and her husband, rap mogul Jay Z, attended Erica Reid's book launch event Tuesday in New York City. Reid is married to former Deele group member, and record exec, L.A. Reid, who also hosted the event. Attending the event were singer Mary J Blige, Erica and L.A.'s daughter; Beyonce's mother Tina, and Jane Miller, among others. Erica Reid's book is titled 'The Thriving Child' and the party was held at private residence.

It's good to see Jay Z showing affection for Beyonce in public -- especially now that rumors have surfaced about him staying away from home for prolonged periods of time. My sources tell me that Beyonce is adjusting very well to being a single new mother. They say her postpartum depression has lifted somewhat. That's good to hear.

    • Destinee

      Sandra,
      Causes, incidence, and risk factors:
      Women commonly have mood changes during pregnancy, especially after delivery. These mood changes may be caused by changes in hormone levels. Many non-hormonal factors may also affect mood during this period:

      •Changes in your body from pregnancy and delivery

      •Changes in work and social relationships

      •Having less time and freedom for yourself

      •Lack of sleep

      •Worries about your ability as a mother

      Now if it is hormonal changes that cause postpartum depression, how can she having hormonal issues and she didnt birth the baby. It would be just regular clinical depression…right
