While married music couple Jay-Z and Beyonce have remained mum over their recent pregnancy news, R&B hitmaker The-Dream has stepped up and detailed their excitement.
According to Dream, both artists are overjoyed with the pregnancy.
The producer/songwriter tells Billboard.com that his good friends Jay-Z and Beyonce stay just as busy as he does -- which is why he's overjoyed that the couple is expecting their first child. "They're ecstatic, as well as they should be," says The-Dream of Jay-Z and Beyonce, who announced her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards. "I love it for them because they work so hard. To start a family after you've worked so hard is great. It's great for her to be at a certain place in their life where she can say, 'Okay, cool. I've killed it for this many years, but let me do this.'" (Billboard)
Roc Nation protege J. Cole recently offered his take on the unexpected pregnancy news.
"Somebody was like 'Beyonce pregnant?!' Then they showed the photo of her, I guess on the carpet with her hands on her stomach showing her baby bump. It was just instant smiles and instant disbelief or whatever but I was just telling somebody it feel like the whole world is having a baby right now. That's how ill it is," Cole said. "Not only are they huge celebrities but I feel like they did it right. They carried themselves in the public light right, they represent black people, right, correctly. So it's like the only thing we've seen like that is Will and Jada [Smith] but even they're a little more relevant to us, like immediately more relevant to our generation at least my generation so that's why it feels so important."
