Full Disclosure: Sometimes I entirely forget Beyonce and Jay-Z still exist, so this report was a surprise to me on an entirely different level. At any rate, Us Weekly is reporting the couple are expecting a baby, and unlike the dozen other times this was rumored, Solange Knowles essentially confirmed the news:
“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.”
Still, another insider says that the singer, who is in her first trimester, realizes that “this is a gift from God and she’s so happy.”
…. 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.”
So how does this work? Does Beyonce get all excited and starts darning baby socks like a good mother while Sasha Fierce runs around telling her to get an abortion? Or am I making a failed marketing gimmick sound more glamorous than it really is? Fine. You try and say something interesting about Beyonce. She’s like a black Carrie Underwood.
