As speculation that Beyoncé is pregnant with her second child increases, we bring you the low-down on the stories that are doing the rounds.
According to E! news, multiple sources have confirmed that the superstar singer is pregnant with her and hubby Jay-Z’s second baby.
What’s more, the celebrity couple’s close friend and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons took to Twitter to share a congratulatory message.
“Congratulations Jay-Z & Beyonce…” Russell tweeted.
Although there’s no response from the tight-lipped couple, Beyoncé took to Instagram to hit back at speculation.
“I can’t stop the rumours from starting, and I can’t really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me,” the post read, which was then suddenly deleted by the star just a few hours later.
Rumours began after the Love On Top singer cancelled a date on her sell-out world tour, although her rep claimed she had “been advised by her doctors to rest as a result of dehydration and exhaustion.”
Photos recently emerged of the chart-topping singer on tour sporting what looked like a rounded tummy on stage, then to add fuel to the pregnancy rumours Beyoncé’s Mrs Carter Show also saw her dancers wheel two prams across the stage– although Queen Bey may just be poking fun at all the fuss about baby number two!
The singer has made no secret of her desire to expand her family, revealing that she would like daughter Blue Ivy to have a sibling for company.
Last week, Beyoncé spoke about motherhood in an interview with Daybreak to promote the release of animated film Epic, revealing that she tones down her singing voice when serenading daughter Blue, according to MTV.
“I have a Mummy voice. I keep my Beyoncé voice for the stage and I have my simple Mummy voice,” Beyoncé said.
“I remember hearing a story about Celine Dion and she’s like when I sing my, I don’t know if it was her son that cried. She has the most beautiful voice in the world but she’s like he hates it,” she laughed.
“So I said well maybe I’ll just give a little simple nursery rhyme voice to my toddler.”
What do you think – is another baby Beyoncé on the way?
