This week, tabloids -- touting photos of Beyonce displaying what some thought was a baby bump -- insisted the diva had gone all Tori Spelling on us and is already pregnant with baby #2. Now, we know FOR A FACT the rumor couldn't be further from the truth! And it's all thanks to a source very, very close to the situation, aka ... hubby Jay-Z!
E! News was on the case and cornered Jay at the NBA 2K13 release at the 40/40 Club in NYC. They didn't beat around the bush and asked him straight out if they're having another baby. His response? "Tonight? No. Absolutely not. ... Not in one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine months!" Well, there you have it, folks. Blue Ivy will NOT be getting a little bro or sis any time in the very near future. But even if she was, Mr. and Mrs. Carter are under no obligation whatsoever to divulge that info to we the people.
I totally appreciate that Jay-Z put E! -- and all the other media outlets out there perpetuating the gossip -- in their place, but ultimately, these snoopy stories don't even need to be justified with a response.
The woman may be an international superstar married to another international superstar and they may be accustomed to being stalked by the nosy press nonstop and Bey may be giving birth to little entertainment biz prodigies. But she's still a human being and a mom! Ultimately, just because she lives in the spotlight doesn't mean she shouldn't be entitled to the same privacy most women have to keep the news to themselves until they're ready to share. When/if she tells the world should be completely up to her.
And it's not like she hasn't proven that she can't make the announcement with some panache and pizazz! Seriously, how cute was her "big reveal" for Blue Ivy? We should just hold our horses for another one of those!
In the meantime, here's a flashback to when she was pregnant with her first ...
Do you agree we should stop trying to call "baby bump alert!" on celebs like Beyonce or is it just way too fun?
