If the online rumor mill is to be believed, the superstar and her hip hop mogul husband, Jay-z, are expecting their first child. The duo has kept quiet on the subject, neither confirming nor denying the rumors, but MediaTakeOut.com is already offering their congrats, claiming their source is "rock solid."
We'll admit it, we couldn't help but squeal a little when we heard the news. At the risk of sounding like your overbearing mother-in-law, it's about time they gave us a baby! The pair have long been a favorite celebrity couple since they first starting dating in 2002, their eight-year relationship beating the Hollywood odds. Celebrity Engagement Rings
So is there really a baby on the way for the couple? Jay-Z did let it slip last year that trying to get pregnant was high on the couple's list of priorities. And it wouldn't be the first thing the two have kept a secret.
After dating and fielding wedding rumors since 2002, they tied the knot in April 2008...but then kept it quiet for over a year, until Beyonce excitedly referred to Jay-Z as her husband when accepting the 2009 Grammy for Best Female Vocal Performance. She's been on bump watch since then, but gossip rags that cried shotgun wedding had to eat their words when there was no mini-Bey to be seen nine months later. Celebrity Baby Bonanza
So bump-watch with caution and hold off on that trip to Buy Buy Baby until someone from Beyonce or Jay-Z's camp confirms the rumor...but in the meantime, join us by the watercooler. We'll be flipping through a baby name book.
