After days of speculation, according to E! News, multiple sources have confirmed to them that Beyoncé is expecting her second child with Jay-Z.
Suspicions were first sparked by the careful camouflage of the Givenchy gown Beyoncé, 31, wore to attend the Met Ball in New York.
The high waisted bodice with a detailed pattern made it hard to see the superstar’s actual shape.
But it was when Beyoncé had to cancel her Mrs. Carter Show performance in Antwerp, Belgium on Tuesday citing “dehydration and exhaustion” that the rumor mill went into overdrive.
Beyoncé recently told ABC News that she “would like more children” and that she feels 16-month-old Blue Ivy could do with some company.
She wore custom, hand beaded white peplum one-piece by designers Ralph & Russo when she took the stage in Antwerp a day after the cancelled concert, and though there was no sign of a bump the fitted corset gave little away.
The New York Post newspaper also claimed that “multiple sources” told them Beyoncé is pregnant following her attendance at the star-studded Met Ball, where the star’s rumored pregnancy was the talk of the night.
Beyoncé is said to have “carefully” hidden her baby bump in the high-waisted Givenchy gown, but multiple photos have since surfaced of the singer sporting a growing stomach on her 65-date Mrs. Carter Show world tour, which touched down in Dublin, Ireland, on Sunday.
Pictures of her on stage in London appear to show an uncharacteristically rounded tummy.
Beyoncé welcomed her first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, into the world in January 2012.
The singer and her husband Jay-Z – real name Shawn Carter – remained tight-lipped about her first pregnancy until sensationally announcing it live at the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2011.
