I’ll be taking this one with a grain of salt, thank you.
For what seems like the trillionth time, rumors are circulating that Beyonce is pregnant. Except this time, allegedly, it’s true.
A source told US Magazine that Beyonce and Jay-Z are indeed expecting their first child, and no one was more surprised than the 29-year-old superstar herself.
“B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” says a source of the singer, who married rapper Jay-Z in 2008. “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.”
Beyonce is supposedly in her first trimester, and although she’s surprised by the news, she realizes “this is a gift from God and she’s so happy.”
No official announcement of pregnancy has come from either Beyonce or Jay-Z’s people, and I assume there won’t be one any time soon. If Beyonce is in fact in her first trimester, I seriously doubt she would announce it to the world so early.
That hasn’t stopped friends and family from commenting, apparently, and some are already sending well-wishes.
“Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be,” record executive Kevin Liles, who has known the rapper for years, tells Us. “I wish them the best.”
Knowles’ sister Solange — and mom to Julez, 6 — agrees.
“She’s got the most beautiful heart,” she tells Us of her big sis. “She’ll be a great mom.”
