Rap icon Jay-Z has chosen to address the circulating rumors about his wife, Beyonce Knowles, being pregnant with their first child.
According to Jay, the reports are merely gossip and are invalid.
The “Empire State of Mind” rapper told The Daily Telegraph that there is “no truth” to the gossip that Bey is pregnant. People must really want Jay and Bey to reproduce because this rumor keeps popping up. “They do that every slow news day,” Jay said. “This is like the fifth time. I think we have five kids now.” (S2S Magazine)
Beyonce’s mother appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show last week to quiet the “baby talk”.
Beyonce’s mom Tina Knowles just blew the lid off the story that her daughter is pregnant — telling Ellen DeGeneres, the rumors are simply “not true.” Ellen’s interview will air tomorrow. (TMZ)

Knowles, 29, is reportedly in her first trimester. (My Fox NY)
Following the reports, Jay’s former Def Jam boss and Beyonce’s sister 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)
