Back in March, rumors that Beyoncé was pregnant were quickly shot down by the singer’s rep. Now, seven months later, the same rumors are back. On Wednesday (October 20), UsMagazine.com reported that unnamed sources say B and her rap mogul husband, Jay-Z, are expecting a bundle of joy.
“B was shocked,” one source reportedly told the site. “She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet. She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.” Another source added, “This is a gift from God and she’s so happy.” Although nothing is confirmed from Beyoncé or Jay-Z, it’s being reported that the singer is in her first trimester.
The pair has always kept their private life private, but Beyoncé has been open to talking about motherhood. Earlier this year, she spoke to Allure magazine about the prospect of being a mother. “I definitely want to have a child, but I know from my nephew it’s a lot. I hope that those things will just happen naturally. I still haven’t had time to relax,” she said.
The pair married in April 2008 and that same year Beyoncé told “Access Hollywood” there was a loose timeline of when she might want to have children. She explained, “The kids, I don’t know … in three years, maybe. It’s a lot of work.”
Regardless of whether or not she is pregnant, fans have been gearing up for a different kind of new arrival from B. Late last month, many speculated that Beyoncé would soon release a new single after producer Los Da Mystro — a frequent collaborator of The-Dream, who worked with Tricky Stewart on “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” — tweeted that he was listening to a new track that was going to be released in three weeks. That was in late September. No new music has been released yet.
