We’ve yet to settle into the adorable being that is Blue Ivy, and now, this just in from the Queen Bey’s hive: according to an exclusive report from E! Online, Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting baby number two!
Speculation of Mrs. Carter’s pregnancy rose earlier this week when she cancelled her first of two Antwerp shows during the European leg her world tour; as evidenced by this handwritten note, it was the first time she’s had to do so in her career… ever. Reps initially cited “dehydration and exhaustion” as the culprit, but three days later, we can chalk it up to a case of baby fever. It should be little surprise, though, that the multihyphenate is adding to her brood. While promoting her role in the animated feature Epic on ABC News last week, Beyoncé said she “would like more children” and that her “daughter needs some company.”
But what could this mean for the remainder of the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour? Jay-Z’s better half won’t be bringing the show stateside until June 28, and without a full single or fifth album reveal, we could be in for a long summer—or Live at Roseland take two (that wouldn’t be a bad thing, but we all want to get bodied with Bey!). At least we have her HBO documentary, Pepsi commercial, and H&M campaign to hold us over… for now.
