Beyoncé and Jay-Z are reportedly expecting baby number two but the cagey couple are giving nothing away, despite bump rumours. So, what’s the scoop? Blossoming Bey was spotted sporting a pretty noticeable bump at a party with Jay-Z on 23 September. Hollywood Life reported, “Beyoncé showed up to La Marina restaurant in NYC in a tight-fitting leopard-print dress that showed off her new baby bump. The usually trim superstar arrived with her husband Jay-Z, and witnesses immediately noticed a small bump visible.”
Meanwhile, Beyoncé’s rep told the site, “I do not comment on her personal life”, which usually means the rumour’s true, while another source confirmed that Bey is “100 per cent” preggers and was actually drinking “ginger ale to cope with motion sickness” rather than vino on her 16 September birthday cruise in France.
But if they’re expecting a brother or sister for Blue, the couple aren’t ready to admit it just yet. E! News caught up with Jay in NYC 29 September and asked him if Bey was pregnant. He said, “Tonight? No. Not in one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight or nine months.”
While Bey’s mum Tina told Entertainmentwise, “Of course I [want more grandchildren]! I harass [Beyoncé] all the time,” before adding, “It’s gonna happen when it’s time, but not right now.”
Bey’s made no secret of her desire to have more children and has gushed about how much she loves being a mum. She even told US show Anderson Live, “I love it. I love every moment of it, it’s so beautiful. I love it all.” But if she is pregnant again insiders are speculating she’ll keep quiet until the last minute and make an announcement at a big event like she did with Blue. Hollywood News Daily reports, “Either way, Beyoncé and Jay-Z will make a news announcement when they feel the time is right and on their terms.” Just let us know soon, pretty please!
