The Bey-baby rumour mill has been in overdrive ever since Beyonce stepped out in that belted Givenchy dress at the Met Ball and cancelled a date of her infamous Mrs Carter tour saying she was “exhausted” earlier this week. Well, now it appears we have confirmation that Beyonce is indeed with child. Multiple sources have apparently told news giant E! today that the singer is having her second child. And the internet/world (same thing?) has freaked out!
“Was he/she/it conceived in Cuba on Beyonce’s “illegal” holiday with Jay-Z a couple of months ago?” “Will he/she/it have a $1 nursery like her big sister, Blue Ivy?” “And whatever will he/she/it be called?” are just some of the questions already being asked.
Jay-Z and Beyonce had their her first child, Blue Ivy, only 16 months ago and she’s already become one of the most watched celebrity children. Since then, Beyonce has made no secret of the fact she would like another child. ‘I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister,’ she said to ABC News recently, referring to her relationship with little sister Solange. Pressed on when she may have another child, she added: ‘At some point, when it’s supposed to happen.’
There’s no official confirmation of the news from Beyonce or Jay-Z – or word of the mum’s due date yet. But maybe they’re waiting for the right occasion. The singer famously told the world she was pregnant with Blue Ivy on stage at the 2012 MTV Video Movie Awards. So watch this space. And congrats to the happy couple!
