Jay-Z & Beyonce Are Not Expecting A Child, Mother-In-Law Confirms

Yesterday (October 20) a source told US Magazine that Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce are expecting a baby, saying that the singer is already in her first trimester of pregnancy. The pop star’s mother Tina Knowles will be on today’s Ellen Degeneres Show to dispel the reports.

“I heard [the gossip],” Knowles said in a clip obtained by tmz.com, “but I’m here to clear the rumors up. The truth is that it’s not Beyonce that’s pregnant it’s me,” she joked.

“No it’s not true,” she clarified. “[But] I’m looking forward to it. With all the rumors, by now I should have about five or six grandchildren.” [Watch below]

Jay-Z is currently gearing up for the release of his book Decoded. Set for release on November 16, the tome will include the rapper’s memoirs, interviews with loved ones as well as a comprehensive breakdown of some of Hov’s favorite lyrics.

In related news, Ellen had Kanye West as a guest on her show on Tuesday. During the interview he offered a preview of his 35-minute “Runaway” and also revealed that he will never attend another awards show in light of last year’s incident at the MTV Video Music Awards, where he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video in defense of nominee Beyonce.

    Am I the only person that thinks that Beyonce doesn’t want to have Jigga’s kid? What’s her excuse, money???? Between the two of them they are Billionaires.

    I don’t know. To me, the marriage of these two has been more beneficial to Beyonce than to Jay-Z.

      Your opinions are usually on-point, but on this particular one I think it’s pretty wack Sha.

      Of course the concern wouldn’t be money. However, look at them, they are two of the most active people in the entertainment/music industry. A baby would require a lot of time they probably aren’t willing to set aside yet.

    yo Sha…

    this what I be talking about.

    Ain’t nothing bad happen to either one of them, it ain’t actual music, it ain’t even the ‘Decoded’ book party they had in FL yesterday.

    it’s a drop on how Bey’s period came.
