Beyonce has recently sparked rumors she is wearing a fake baby bump during an interview at an Australian television show.
Beyonce Knowles, 30, gave an interview to the Australian TV personality Molly Meldrum on the Sunday Night show.
At one moment, during the interview, the cameras appear to show Beyonce’s bump being squashed and moving as she sits down.
Beyonce’s interview on the Sunday Night show was to promote her new album 4.
The singer told Molly Meldrum she is due to give birth in February, adding that she feels “grateful” and “blessed” to be expecting her first child.
After her appearance on the Australian TV show, the gossip websites have promoted speculation that Beyonce is wearing a prosthetic bump and some are even questioning if the famous singer is faking her pregnancy while a surrogate mother carries her baby.
Other speculation was that Beyonce was wearing a padded belly to the MTV Video Music Awards two months ago in an effort to make her pregnancy revelation “more dramatic”.
Beyonce made a point of flaunting her bump on the red carpet in an orange Lanvin dress and later rubbed it dramatically during her performance on stage.
After that moment, Beyonce told Harper’s Bazaar about her public pregnancy announcement during an interview:
“I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself.
“I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did… I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”
The 30-year-old singer also said she waited to start a family with husband Jay-Z so that she could concentrate on her career.
“It was important to me that I gave myself time to focus on becoming the woman I want to be, building my empire, my relationship, and my self-worth, before I became a mother,” Beyonce said.
She ended: “Now God has blessed us with the ultimate.”
As many other artists, Beyonce is seizing the opportunity to turn her pregnancy into a money spinner by launching her own maternity line.
