Beyonce’s mother has spoken out this week in light of the recent pregnancy rumours which have surfaced regarding her daughter.
Earlier this week several reports surfaced in the US claiming that the former Destiny’s Child singer is expecting her first child with her rap star husband, Jay-Z. It was thought the award-winning diva had fallen pregnant accidentally as she prepared for her world tour.
However the singer’s 56-year-old mother appeared on a US chat show this week and joked: “The truth is that’s it’s not Beyonce that’s pregnant, it’s me” Before denying the rumours that her daughter was pregnant saying “it’s not true. Not right now.”
Despite her mother’s flat denial of the baby news, the congratulations have been pouring in from other celebrity friends of the couple. Beyonce’s sister, Solange, even remarked “she’ll be a great mom.”
Beyonce and Jay Z work hard to keep their relationship out of the press, the couple even married in secret in 2008 and didn’t admit to becoming husband and wife until many months after the event.
Speaking in an interview earlier this year, the Crazy in Love singer said she would consider starting a family when she’s ready, adding that she’s doesn’t have any time frame in mind for when she plans to become a mother.
Beyonce was seen checking into a Miami hotel this week wearing a very tight fitting dress showing no hint of a baby bump.
