Is BeyoncÃ© expecting her second child?
Beyoncé is reportedly pregnant! The ‘Grown Woman’ singer – who welcomed her first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, into the world in January 2012 – is said to be expecting again with her rapper husband Jay-Z. The New York Post newspaper claims “multiple sources” told them Beyoncé, 31, is pregnant following her attendance at the star-studded Met Ball last week, where the star’s rumoured pregnancy was the talk of the night.
The pop superstar is said to have “carefully” hidden her baby bump in a high-waisted Givenchy gown, but according to the report, multiple photos have surfaced of Beyoncé sporting a growing stomach on her 65-date ‘Mrs. Carter Show’ world tour, which touched down in Dublin, Ireland, last night.
The ‘Girls (Run the World)’ hitmaker’s spokesperson couldn’t be reached for comment by the newspaper, but Beyoncé and Jay-Z – real name Shawn Carter – remained tight-lipped about her first pregnancy until sensationally announcing it live at the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2011.
Beyoncé recently admitted she would love to give her 18-month-old daughter a sibling, because she enjoyed such a close relationship with her younger sister Solange Knowles, 26, when they were growing up. She said: “I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister.” When pressed on when she may have another child, she added: “At some point, when it’s supposed to happen.”
