'before_fork' is executed in parallel by two processes ¿?

Simpler example:

worker_processes 3

before_fork do |server, worker|
  puts "*** I'my PID #{$$}"

Then run Unicorn in foreground and I see:

  *** I'm PID 8791
  *** I'm PID 8791
  *** I'm PID 8791

8791 is the PID of the master process, so yes, it seems that workers don't 
exist yet in before_fork (as obviously expected). However the block into 
before_fork is executed "worker_processes" times by master process.

Do I miss something?
