Jay-Z has reportedly hinted that he is ready to have his first child with wife and R&B singer, Beyonce Knowles.

While details are scarce, the rapper reportedly revealed his baby hopes in a recent interview.

Her song "Single Ladies" is an Internet hit among dancing babies and now, Beyoncé's working on a tot of her own. That's according to, get this, Jay-Z, B's notoriously tight-lipped hubby, who spilled the baby beans himself. While chatting up Gotham mag editor in chief Cristina Greeven Cuomo, the rapper let it slip that procreating is high on the duo's priority list right now. (New York Daily News)

Beyonce previously died down past talks of their aim to have a child together in the near future.

"I definitely want one, but I'm not ready for all of that," she said on "The View" last April. "I don't think a person should see that before her time. It was a little much. But I'm so in love with my nephew, and every time I see him I'm like, God, he's just amazing." ("The View")

Game previously taunted Jay for not being able to have children with Beyonce on the song, "I'm So Wavy."

"And I been hard to the core since I went solo," Game raps. "Only man on my horse like my all black polo...Got the camel in a choke hold/Tryin' to son me, I'm not from N-Y-C/You can't even have a child by your Destiny." ("I'm So Wavy")

Jay recently appeared on Oprah Winfrey's talk show and discussed the importance of keeping his marriage out of the media spotlight.

"When you live your life so out in the public, then your music and life are on display," Hov added. "You need to separate from it. You can't be in that light all the time. You need some type of escape from it. And that's one thing that's sacred and not in the public eye." ("The Oprah Winfrey Show")
