Beyonce is definitely maybe pregnant, says E! News’ exclusive sources

I don’t really understand why this news “broke” on a Friday afternoon for Us Weekly and E! News considering that Page Six already had the “exclusive” story on Monday. But here we go – Beyonce is pregnant again. Allegedly, maybe. Probably. Or something. It’s worth noting that after Page Six claimed Bey was pregnant, Us Weekly ran a story with sources claiming she definitely was NOT. Then Beyonce had to cancel one of her concerts in Belgium and everyone was all “Oh, it’s on, break out the pillows, y’all.”

Let’s just do bullet points:

*E! News says: “That’s right: Superstar supermom Beyoncé is expecting her second child with hubby Jay-Z, multiple sources exclusively confirm to E! News.
The news follows rampant speculation that the “Countdown” songbird was pregnant, even as the couple remained tight-lipped about their ever-growing family.”

*Us Weekly doesn’t have any new sourcing, they’re just citing E! News. But! Us Weekly does say that when Beyonce finally did perform in Belgium (after canceling the one concert), she told the crowd, “Now, my doctors told me not to perform tonight, but there was no way in the world.”

*And People Magazine doesn’t have anything. Yet. I feel like People’s editors think that Beyonce should confirm exclusively to them, but Beyonce’s people are like, “No, Bey, you gotta wait until some big event and then pop that pillow out!” Or something.

Anyway, the long and short of it is that there’s still no real confirmation. Watch this space!

    I think if E! is confirming it, it’s most likely true. They’re not Life & Style, In Touch or Radar.

  2. DGO says:

    Sad thing is, even if she confirms it, I’m not sure I’d believe anything that comes out of her mouth. Is she still claiming to be 31?

  3. F5 says:

    if Blind Gossip is right, both B and her surrogate are preggers.. get your popcorn ready ;p

  4. LadyJane says:

    I think this one might be for real. She cancelled her first gig ever because of the morning sickness, and realised that you can’t always push your body when pregnant, especially with pregnancy sickness. Welcome to being pregnant bey, I will be interested to see how different this pregnancy is to your previous one. I predict it will be very different indeed.

  5. MissMoody says:

    I wonder if this means she’ll go into hiding again once her tour is over or if she’ll actually let us plebs see her bump in real time. Whether she faked her first pregnancy or not, those rumours have stuck and have caused some damage to her all-important brand. I wonder if she has articles on her folding baby bump in her temperature-controlled archives? Either way, I’m expecting a more publc pregnancy or I’m jumping on the Fake-Bump bandwagon

  6. siobhan says:

    If the first pregnancy hurt her image maybe she thinks a second could only help.

  7. aims says:

    Brace yourself everyone. This is going to be a very long nine months.

  8. janie says:

    Yeah for Beyonce! Hope she has an easy pregnancy & very healthy little baby!! Wonder if Kimye will fall out of the spotlite?

  9. PrincessMe says:

    I’m not taking what she said at the concert to be an indication of her being pregnant. It would come off as her putting a concert above her baby – that doesn’t sound right. So I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt that her statement wasn’t a “hint” at being pregnant.

    • Hakura says:

      @PrincessMe – That is a very good point. I hadn’t thought about it in that way, but you’re right as to how that could be perceived. Her highness certainly doesn’t need anymore negative ‘pregnancy-related’ PR making the rounds again.

  10. diva says:

    We have to suffer through another one of her “pregnancy” again. Maybe she’ll carry this one. If Kim’s vain ass can do it, sure B can.

  11. lisa2 says:

    if true congrats to them.

  12. Kim1 says:

    Congrats to my homegirl Baddiebey.I knew when she cancelled a concert for the first time in her career something was up .Probably having a boy.Love all my DC girls .Repping Htown

  13. Trudy says:

    This is Bey’s and Jay’s way of telling Kimye, sorry but your child won’t be Blu Ivy’s playmate. We’ll just make one for her, lol!

  14. HappyMom says:

    I said she was pregnant when I saw her pics from the Met Gala. She has “pregnant boobs.”

  15. EG says:

    I think KimK’s uncomfortable but very obviously real pregnancy brought the conspiracy theories about Bey’s pregnancy back into the public eye.

    My theory is that B’s choice to use a surrogate was motivated by both having had a previous miscarriage and not wanting to “ruin” her body. I also believe she did counseling and hypnotherapy in order to be able to pull off the months-long lie. Now that Kim is showing the world what a bootylicious woman really looks Iike while pregnant, the charade seems even more ridiculous.

    I’m happy for Bey if she really is pregnant, and I do think she will redeem herself by being, looking, and acting pregnant this time around. I agree with all of you that if this is true, there will be no lack of “proof” that the bump is real this time.

    She can still perform and be amazing (she is charismatic and a fantastic entertainer), without dancing her ass off or endangering her baby. Best wishes to her.

    • FLORC says:

      I thought her last pregnancy was because Jay Z has numerous mistresses. 1 got pregnant and Bey wore the pillow until the mistress had the baby. It lined up with all the conspiracy bits and Bey’s behavior. Jay-Z forgot to wear a condom with his mistress again. I could be wrong, but unless Bey blows up like KimK I won’t buy this woman is truly carrying.

      • Genn says:

        Despite the fact that Blue Ivy looks exactly like Bey? This sounds so ridiculous.

      • Liv says:

        Agree with Genn, Blue looks like both of them, Jay and Beyonce. I think they had a surrogate though.

      • Rikki says:

        Kim Kardashian and Beyonce are not the same height. Beyonce is 5ft 7in. Kim is short and gained weight before she got pregnant. Pictures of Beyonce around 2 years ago show that she lost weight and looked pretty gaunt before she got pregnant. Look at Shakira, who is naturally thick and curvy, she recently had a baby and didn’t blow up at all. All the weight she gained went right to her stomach. Blue Ivy is 100% Beyonce’s child.

      • FLORC says:

        Blue Ivy looks exactly like Jay-Z in specific features. I see very little of Bey in her face and i’m going off of Bey pre plastic surgery. I do see a lot of generic baby face that looks like whatever you want it too.

        KimK and Bey are not the same height and Bey has considerable more muscle tone. Bey does struggle, much like KimK, to keep the fat off. They’re both naturally curvy girls that easily put on fat. Bey has said this in multiple interviews in no uncertain terms. She NEEDS to work out like a maniac to maintain. Shakira is curvy sort of. Her butt is all muscle and she’s had no chest for most of her life. Bey’s natural body is very much what you see in “Bootylicous” . Fit, with a little fat.
        Anyways, Bey may not have wanted to ruin her body. She’s a workaholic and a baby was going to set her back. To say that she carried though I think we can all agree is absurd. No pregnancy puff and hormone benefits at all.

        It’s not a stretch to believe Jay-Z still has mistresses. He sees very little of his wife and this was also admitted in interviews. With this info plus many stories of them bickering just makes it so possible. She does really love that baby though so I will lean towards surrogate. But to discount all other bits is crazy. Most babies have enough generic features to look like almost anyone. Blue Ivy isn’t showing much of Bey’s side.

      • Kelly says:

        Blue has Beyonce’s exact eyebrows, ears. Google photos of Beyonce as a baby. Blue definitely takes after Beyonce too. She is her biological child.

      • Gia says:

        @FLORC: Beyonce is a poster child for liposuction. Please. That girl is thick. Don’t let the airbrushing fool you.

        I can’t wait to see her body react to actual pregnancy. It’s going to blow her mind how uncomfortable, painful and difficult it actually is.

    • Kayla says:

      All pregnant woman do not look the same. 2 years ago Jessica Simpson was the quintessential pregnant woman and she showed what pregnant women look like and that’s why Beyonce faked it but Jessica is practically half her old size.
      Alicia Keys who is a pear like Beyonce carried like Beyonce. Beyonce was in shape not only was she in shape she was extremely tiny April 2011, Kim has been bordering on overweight for 6 months now. Beyonce body is muscle tone while Kims is lipo & fat transfer, hence why their pregnancies are different. Beyonce is 5’7 while kim is 5’2. their pregnancies shouldn’t look the alike.

      • Carolyn says:

        Please don’t lump short ladies in the same bucket as Kim Kartrashian. I am the same height as her and looked nice during pregnancy and nothing like poor unfortunate Kim.

        Kim looks worse than Jessica Simpson ever did.

        Regardless of whether Bey has ordered another pillow or if she is actually with child, I hope all goes well.

    • EG says:

      I did not say that Blue Ivy isn’t Bey’s biological child. It’s entirely possible to have a biological child of both parents by surrogate. Haven’t you people heard of a little thing called IVF?

      EDIT: Oh, I see you are replying to the rumor that Blue is actually the daughter of one of Jay-Z’s mistresses. I don’t know anything about that rumor and it seems farfetched to me that Beyonce would pretend that another woman’s child is hers. I think she wanted to have a baby and chose surrogacy through IVF. Sorry, y’all!

  16. Jade says:

    Just saw that it has been offcially confirmed so I had to edit my comment lol. Maybe it was unplanned? Beyonce is very controlling of her image and brand, I don’t think she would deliberately try getting pregnant while touring. Anyway, congrats.

  17. Shy says:

    Am I the only one who doesn’t give a crap if Beyonce is pregnant? Didn’t care the first time and don’t care now. Why people get so crazy when celebrity gets pregnant?

    • Hakura says:

      @Shy – Nope, you’re not alone. In the last recent post about this on CB, I said I don’t wish she (or her family) any ill-will or harm, but that I honestly don’t give a flying f*ck if she’s pregnant or not.

      The insanity that the whole thing provoked last time was absolutely ridiculous. But while it’s true that it’s no one’s business… I’ll never forget the hilarious look of poor panic on her face when her ‘heavily pregnant’ stomach folded in on itself that one time. Priceless. xD

      • Jub-Jub says:

        That was funny! It’s weird that she felt the need to lie about her pregnancy.

        Cute guinea pig by the way :)

      • Hakura says:

        Oops! Typo – “I’ll never forget the hilarious look of *pure panic on her face when her ‘heavily pregnant’ stomach folded in on itself that one time.

      • Hakura says:

        @Jub-Jub – Thank you! They’re my horribly spoiled piggies. His name (in the icon pic) is ‘Woob’ x3 He’s just 1 of many. He operates under the delusion that he is calling the shots ( ).

        Maybe I’m ‘Jaded’, but I thought a reason she BS-ed pregnancy w/that pillow (as opposed to admitting using a surrogate) is for all the attention & PR it got her. Sadly, celeb pregnancy has become some sort of ‘fad’.

        I’ve seen others mention that it was ‘vanity’ that led them to use a surrogate, not wanting to affect her body/appearance w/a pregnancy. But miscarriages were also mentioned, so who knows.

  18. Well... says:

    I know I’m going to catch hell for this.

    But, I feel bad for famous women that now can’t wait until the 1st (questionable) trimester is over before people are announcing their pregnancy. She already claimed that she suffered a miscarriage, it could happen again…

    Obviously, I think the previous false pregnancy/fake belly stories were silly and ungrounded- though fun.

    • pfeiffer87 says:

      +1 The fake pregnancy rumours were hilarious, I swear people don’t realise what they’re saying when they write that tripe. It’s gonna be another 9 months of ridiculousness from the crazies. Got my popcorn ready.

    • siobhan says:

      At least if a celebrity has a miscarriage they can release a statement and everyone knows about it. When your not famous you just have to hope everyone will find out and you don’t have to keep telling people who ask how the baby is doing. Then they want to know how you found out. Then they want to give their opinion on what caused the miscarriage. And of course they have to give you advice on how to avoid another miscarriage.

    • Miffy says:

      Actually EVERY woman is advised to keep it quiet until after the first trimester. Those first 12 weeks are no guarantee so the rule of thumb is not to go public til you’re in a safer zone. It’s not just celebrities.

    • Hakura says:

      @Well… – I agree w/you. Pregnancy is such an intensely personal & important thing to a couple. I realize, unfortunately, that it will never happen, but if there’s anything that deserves to be left alone (at least until public confirmation/announcement) by the press, it’s pregnancy.

    • NM9005 says:

      I feel bad for Beyoncé if the rumours are true. She’s obviously not ready to announce it if the news is true because no way would she start a tour if she knew she was pregant.
      She’s too much of a control freak and pregnant while on tour is difficult (see Aguilera and Jlo who cancelled shows and couldn’t keep it a secret).

      I feel the media should back off a bit considering she had a miscarriage before. She’s not in the ‘safe’ stage yet, a bit of respect would be much appreciated in this case.
      Also, I could understand why she would be mad at the same people who talked about her ‘fake pregnancy’ last time. It’s like they’re eager to know so they can say it’s fake again. That’s so sad.

      That said, Beyoncé shouldn’t protest too much because as a brand, she knows it’s the media’s job to talk about her and with a scoop like a pregnancy, they WILL. And being a control freak, she probably wants to highjack a show or other people to confirm it like she did with BIC. The media is not kind to her because she always tries to control them and play them and well, shit hits the roof then.

  19. QueenFreddie says:

    Congrats to Bey and Jay.

    I was reading other blogs to see the reaction. Almost everyone gave Congratulations to Bey and then started questions what is going to happen to the tour? Some of her fans said they paid up to $500 to see her near the end of the tour. I wouldn’t pay that amount to see anyone but I understand their frustration. Others were wondering what will happen with Pepsi? Pepsi is paying for her tour.

    I think Pepsi will do what WW did with Jessica Simpson and extend their contract with Bey and support her publicly and fume behind the scenes.

  20. Tina says:

    Of course there is very interesting blind item about “some couple” expecting child/children:

    This married couple has a fascinating dilemma on their hands!

    They tried to get pregnant. After a miscarriage, they went the surrogate route. The surrogate produced a happy, healthy baby.

    The couple decided that they wanted another child. Logically, they decided to hire a surrogate again. The surrogate got pregnant… but so did the wife!

    The couple is totally shocked! Both pregnancies are still very early on, and there is no guarantee that both women will carry to term, so there will no announcements for a while. But they are already talking about the possibilities.

    If both women can successfully carry to term, will they keep both children? Admit to a surrogate? Pretend that the wife gave birth to twins? If only the surrogate carries successfully to term, will they admit to the surrogate? Pretend that the wife gave birth?

    I’m not into these blinds but if this fake bitch expects twins….

  21. Olivia says:

    Beyonce put 2 strollers on stage in Belgium and heavily hinted at being pregnant with twins.

  22. Brittany says:

    Nooooo (for my own selfish reasons). I have tickets to see her in July.

  23. dorothy says:

    Pregnant again? Yea, sure…they mean her surrogate is pregnant. Guess it’s time to get out the fake belly again.

  24. Mandy says:

    Who knows if she is really pregnant and more importantly, who cares???

  25. Asdfg says:

    In Beyonce eye’s we’re all low lifes! LOL! Without fans she would be no one!

    Someone needs to think twice before posting! Mmmmhmm…

  26. Pandora says:

    god I hope she’s not pregnant…..I’m not sure i can face another 12mths+ of beyonce conspiracy fetishists in a rabid state of high arousal……..

  27. Katebush says:

    dont care. she’s boring. solange has so much more style than B

  28. Reg says:

    They booked that surrogate for two babies…

  29. Dedrie says:

    Bey says anyone talking about her being with child is a low life.. you fan and gossip people are spoiling her next dramatic announcement, plus her surrogate is preggers too..? Oh.. what to do.. what to do..?

    • Dawn says:

      I say the best thing to do is to leave her alone and by that I mean the fans along with the media. And we should do that with anyone who bitches about what made them overly famous in the first place and that would be the MEDIA. The media and paps need to just go away for 6 months and let all these “low-lifes” fame whores beg them to come back. I say hit them where they feel it and that is in the pocket book.

    • Rikki says:

      She never said that. It was on a fake Instagram account, not hers

  30. Mingy says:

    Whats up with all the crazies getting pregnant..Hally, Beyonce, Kim K..da hell?! Hope I’m not next :)

  31. Nelli says:

    Who gets pregnant when they have planned a world tour? Does she have a problem getting pregnant and that’s why she would’ve been initially surprised. I can’t wait to see the photos comparing both pregnancies. If she really is pregnant there will be a difference. As for twins, if it’s not the surrogate having their child then IVF? If she’s carrying twins she will be huge and on bedrest after 30 weeks. Twins always come early.

  32. annie says:

    Blind Gossip says Beyonce Know It All is pregnant and her new surrogate is also pregnant. Could happen.

    This would be a FABULOUS time for her to come clean about the first surrogate – she is only hurting her baby Blue with this lie.

    Then tell the world how fortunate “I am to be pregnant and to also have this other baby growing in a lovely surrogates tummy whose name I would like to keep private for now.” Wouldn’t it be wonderful? What a great story the truth can be. A real Lifetime Movie.

    Do you thihnk that Queen Bey has the courage and the guts and the honesty to do this?

    time will tell. If I was her publicity person, this is a no brainer.

    Come clean Bey. What a beautiful story. You can now just say you were scared to be honest the first time and pretended to have a baby. We can all laugh about the pillow. Wouldn’t it feel good to get that all out? You are blessed. Own up to it lady, it’s about time.

  33. Amelia says:

    She’s looking a lot older and her face harder and manly.

  34. VioletCrumble says:

    Really. It’s not like they invented intercourse, conception and and giving birth. Yaaawwnn.
