From rumor to reality: Beyonce is pregnant


Rumors of Beyonce Knowle’s pregnancy first started circulating after her marriage to Jay Z in 2008, but this time it is for real, a source has told US Weekly magazine.

Earlier this year celebrity site alleged that the singer was pregnant, and although her reps immediately denied that there was any truth to the website’s claims, the news spread like wildfire. According to, the serach term “Beyonce pregnancy confirmed” soon became one of the hottest Google search topics. Just days later the rumor was put to rest.

In an interview with Daily Mail in August 2008, Beyonce said: “My ambition is to continue to learn about the world and to eventually have a family.” The star, who already has the daunting task of juggling her time between being a wife, singer, songwriter, actor, clothing designer and perfume line operator, went on to insist that she was in no rush to become a mother: “No dates, no times – it will happen when I am ready.”

So, it is not all that surprising to learn that the 29-year-old singer was caught off guard and “shocked” to find herself pregnant. A source close to the mother-to-be told US Weekly: “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.” But, the source went on to add, Beyonce realizes “this is a gift from God and she’s so happy.”

Representatives for the couple have not yet addressed the reports. After the previous rumors, do you need more convincing before you believe the news that the Grammy-winning pop sensation really is pregnant this time?
