Beyoncé Knowles is reportedly thrilled and surprised after discovering she is pregnant. The star has been married to hip-hop mogul Jay-Z since 2008 and the pair have regularly spoken in public about their desire to start a family. “B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” a source close to Beyoncé revealed to Us Weekly. “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.” Another friend claims Beyoncé is in her first trimester and says the pregnancy is “a gift from God and she’s so happy.” Record executive Kevin Liles, who has known Jay-Z for many years, is confident the couple will excel at being parents. “Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be,” Liles explained. “I wish them the best.” Earlier this year, Beyoncé revealed she was looking forward to being a mother. She insisted she would remain committed to her career and would find a way to juggle her personal and professional life.
