Beyonce expecting baby

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.

    I bet they will have a great child for some reason. Both are exremely ambitious people, so their child will have the smarts, the drive the ambition like the Will/Jada kids I bet. Way to go.

    So she’s bummed she’s preggers because she wanted to get her album out? Oh this is going to turn out really well.

    I’d like to finish school before I have kids. Although I’m DYING for a baby, were I to get pregnant now, I’d be pretty peeved about the timing.

    Children are a HUGE commitment and take up a lot of your time. More people need to realize the impact that a child has on one’s life before they decide to procreate. You can’t just slap a kid between yoga and drinks at your favourite martini bar. I’d like to think that I’m being responsible by completing many of the “to-do’s” that are on my list that might not go hand in hand with rearing a child. Hopefully Beyoncé is as responsible and would like to complete her album and tour so that she can devote more of her time and energy to raising a child in a stable home environment.
