Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles has denied reports that her daughter is pregnant.
According to a report published in US Magazine today, Knowles, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, is pregnant with her first child.
“B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” one source told the magazine. “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.”
But her mother, Tina, has trashed the pregnancy reports during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres‘ show.
In a clip released ahead of The Ellen DeGeneres Show tomorrow, Tina set the record straight.
“I’m here to clear the rumors up,” she said.
“The truth is that it’s not Beyonce that’s pregnant, it’s me,” she joked, adding, “I’m kidding, no, no I’m 56.
“No, no, it’s not true. Not right now. I’m looking forward to it. With all the rumours by now I should have about five or six grandchildren.”
Us Weekly claims Beyoncé is in her first trimester.
Curiously the magazine also quotes friends and family of the couple expressing their well-wishes for the pair.
Beyonce’s sister Solange said: “She [Beyonce] has got the most beautiful heart. She’ll be a great mom.”
While Jay-Z’s record executive pal said: “Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be. I wish them the best.”
The plot thickens…stay tuned!
