Despite a widely circulated report on the Media Take Out Web site claiming that a "rock solid" source had said Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child together, a rep for the singer told MTV News on Friday (March 26) that the report is "not true."
The famously private singer has spoken about raising a family with Jay in the past. "I hope that those things will just happen naturally," she told Allure magazine in its February issue. She told "Access Hollywood" in 2008, "The kids, I don't know ... in three years, maybe. It's a lot of work."
Beyoncé certainly does not appear to be pregnant in Lady Gaga's recent "Telephone" video, which was filmed last month in Los Angeles.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z joined Alicia Keys onstage at her concert at Madison Square Garden in New York last week. Beyoncé teamed up with Keys for "Put It in a Love Song," joining her midway through the song and finishing it out with a dance breakdown — it was the first time the two had performed together onstage.
A few songs later, Swizz Beatz joined Keys onstage and was soon followed by Jay-Z: Times Square and the New York skyline engulfed the arena as the team broke into "Empire State of Mind."
The couple's second wedding anniversary is approaching: They wed in a private ceremony in New York on April 4, 2008, although they declined to discuss it publicly for many weeks. Jay-Z and Beyoncé were named the top-earning couple in entertainment by Forbes at the end of last year, thanks to a combined household income of $122 million between June 2008 and June 2009.
