For the first time, Beyonce has opened up about the fake baby bump rumours, which circulated after footage from a TV interview implied she may have been wearing a prosthetic bump.
The Run The World singer laughed off the rumours, saying, “You know there are certain things that are so far (from the truth), it doesn’t even affect me. It is so ridiculous and over the top.”
She admits that the only person who was upset by the incident was her mother. “She’s like ‘no one is going to talk about my gran-baby,’” Bey said, “I was like calm down mom, it’s OK.”
Bey announced her pregnancy publically after performing at the MTV Awards in August, and although she refuses to give away the gender of the baby, she is happy to gush about how excited she, and husband Jay Z are, saying, “I am so anxious I want to hold the baby! The best thing is knowing that my favourite person in the world... I haven’t met them yet. It’s exciting.”
The happy couple have been spotted house hunting for a family home, in which to raise their child. One pad they have looked at is Latin singer Ricky Martin’s Miami Beach mega mansion, worth Dhs45 million, which contains seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a huge swimming pool and a sea view.
Bey and Jay Z currently have three homes – one in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighbourhood, one in Scarsdale, New York, and another in Miami.
