UPDATE: Jay-Z speaks about the latest pregnancy rumors
The rumor mill has been going full steam this morning (October 20) thanks to a report claiming that pop/R&B singer Beyonce Knowles is pregnant with what will be her and husband Jay-Z’s first child. According to Us Weekly the singer is already in her first trimester.
"B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn't ready to be a mother just yet," a source revealed to Us Weekly. "She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again."
Another source revealed that news of Beyonce’s possible pregnancy was “a gift from God” and that the 29-year-old singer is “so happy” right now.
Although this will be the couple’s first child Beyonce already has the support of many including her sister Solange Knowles.
"She's got the most beautiful heart,” revealed Solange Knowles when asked about her old sister and motherhood. "She'll be a great mom."
Beyonce's mother has said yesterday's reports are false.
“I heard [the gossip],” Knowles said in a clip obtained by tmz.com, “but I’m here to clear the rumors up. The truth is that it’s not Beyonce that’s pregnant it’s me,” she joked. “No it’s not true,” she clarified. “[But] I’m looking forward to it. With all the rumors, by now I should have about five or six grandchildren.” (October 21)
Shaun "Jay-Z" Carter spoke to The Daily Telegraph and confirmed that there is "no truth" to the latest rumor that his wife Beyonce is carrying their first child. "They do that every slow news day," Jay said. "This is like the fifth time. I think we have five kids now."
