Jay’s former Def Jam boss and Beyonce’s sister have sent their well-wishes to the couple.
“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, tells Us. “I wish them the best.” Knowles’ sister Solange — and mom to Julez, 6 — agrees. “She’s got the most beautiful heart,” she tells Us of her big sis. “She’ll be a great mom.” (Us Magazine)
Earlier this year, Jay-Z said he would like to one day become a father.
“I’d like to be a dad some day and I love children. You start your life with expectations and dreams, then life unfolds and it doesn’t always turn out the way you imagined. Life is what it is. And at this point it’s up to somebody else. I don’t think there is such thing as a perfect relationship. It is unrealistic and hoping for too much. I don’t think it is worth all that pressure. We also have our struggles and problems.” (Kingsize Magazine)
Last fall, speculation grew after Jay was quoted discussing their future family plans.
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)
