The word on the street is that singer and performer extraordinaire Beyonce Knowles is expecting her first child with her husband, rapper Jay-Z.
"B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn't ready to be a mother just yet," says a source of the singer, who married rapper Jay-Z in 2008. She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.
Nevertheless, the star is said to be thrilled and it seems that most people say their pregnancies were "unplanned" when what they really mean is they just can't believe it happened.
For many of us who have been on birth control for years, the fact that our bodies can get pregnant is shocking. When I became pregnant, I had been having unprotected sex, but I still characterize it as unplanned because who knew sex could actually do that?
Ah, but it can. The Knowles family are no strangers to happy "surprises," either. Beyonce's baby sister Solange has a 6-year-old with her childhood sweetheart. She was born when Solange was 21.
Solange thinks Beyonce will make a great mom:
She's got the most beautiful heart. She'll be a great mom.
No matter how much you think you have left to do, motherhood always comes as a shock and even though your whole life will change, some things won't. You will still be Beyonce. You can still tour. You will just cart a little bundle with you now.
It's the best kind of surprise.
Were you surprised like Beyonce?
