Are Beyonce and Jay-Z expecting their first child?

Hollywood rumour mill gets in a tizzy claiming Beyonce is pregnant… but her mum laughs off the reports.

Multi Grammy winner, Beyonce Knowles is reportedly expecting her first child, says the US Weekly magazine.


Rumoured to be within the first three months of pregnancy, a delicate time where announcements aren’t usually made, a source apparently close to the singer said, “B was shocked. She loves kids but wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet.”

Adding more fuel to the fire, Kevin Liles, a record executive and friend of Jay-Z, commented, “Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be. I wish them the best.”

There have been no official confirmations from either camp, but Beyonce’s mum recently appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres chat show in the US, where she laughed off the rumours in a spectacular fashion.

“I heard that (she’s pregnant), but I’m here to clear the rumours up. The truth is, it’s not Beyonce who’s pregnant – it’s me. I’m actually not, I’m 56! No, no – it’s not true. Not right now. I’m looking forward to it (when it happens). By now, with all the rumours, I should have about five or six grandchildren,” said Tina Knowles.


Is she or isn’t she pregnant?  Even if rumours are true, surely in her first trimester the US press should leave her be.  Or is everyone just being a baby bully?
