Superstar singer Beyonce was as surprised as an MTV teen mom to find out she was pregnant. Surprised because it was unplanned or surprised because she’s not? Her mother Tina Knowles expresses on The Ellen Degeneres Show that the rumors are false, which airs tomorrow.
Us Magazine reports, however, that a Beyonce baby is confirmed. “B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” says a source. “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.”
Although her mother, Tina, publicly denies the news, Us reports that Beyonce’s sister Solange told the magazine, “She’s got the most beautiful heart. She’ll be a great mom.”
“Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be,” record executive Kevin Liles, who has known the rapper for years, also tells Us. “I wish them the best.”
It is understandable why the 29-year-old singer would want to postpone motherhood. She makes the Forbes list as the 9th most powerful woman. She’s been married to rapper Jay-Z since spring 2008; and together, they have both earned a combined $122 million last year. Beyonce alone earned $80 million. Jay-Z will be releasing a memoir, Decoded, and Beyonce just completed her world tour.
