Yesterday, Us Weekly ran an “exclusive” story claiming the singer and her husband Jay-Z are expecting. The tabloid quoted an anonymous source saying, “B. was shocked” and “so happy” to be in her first trimester.
Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday to talk about her new Miss Tina clothing line, in an appearance set to air Thursday, and denied the report.
“Let’s clear it up,” said Ellen. “The rumours are that Beyonce is pregnant. Are you going to be a grandmother again?”
“I heard that but I’m here to clear the rumours up,” said Tina. “The truth is that’s it’s not Beyonce that’s pregnant. It’s me.”
“I’m kidding y’all,” said Tina. “I’m 56. No, no it’s not true. Not right now.”
Ellen told her she needs to let us all know when Beyonce is pregnant and Tina said, “I’m looking forward to it.” She added, “With all the rumours, by now I should have five or six grandchildren.”
