While the impending birth of Beyoncé’s baby kept everyone on the edge of their seats over the holidays, the singer and her hubby, Jay-Z, were spotted dining and celebrating the new year over the weekend. And for those wondering, Beyoncé was still very much pregnant, despite rumors she had given birth.
Jay and Bey were seen at Brooklyn restaurant du jour Buttermilk Channel on New Year’s Eve, eating fried chicken and oysters, according to People.com. A source tells the website that despite being very pregnant, Beyoncé was also very glamorous. “She looked amazing. She wore sky-high heels. It was really impressive for an enormously pregnant woman,” the source said. “She looked like she was about to give birth.”
The pair reportedly later went to hang out at Beyoncé’s sister Solange’s apartment for a New Year’s Eve shindig. Before they hit up the bash, the couple shared what may be one of their last nights pre-parenthood. “She was definitely a pregnant lady that night,” the source said. “They sat side by side and had a cozy and intimate dinner. They seemed to be having a lovely time.”
That same night, “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2012” host Ryan Seacrest introduced a pre-taped performance by the star, saying, “Obviously, Beyoncé couldn’t be here tonight because she’s about to give birth to her first child.”
Several days into the new year, Beyoncé’s baby is one of the many celebrity births to look forward to in 2012. Other big pop singer moms-to-be include Hilary Duff and Jessica Simpson.
