Beyonce is rumored to be pregnant, according to several reports from gossip websites and tabloids.

Rumors about Beyonce being pregnant have spanned back for a while, even as far back as May 2013, but the new rash of rumors of late seem to trace back primarily to two sources.

One is a report from the tabloid OK Magazine, which says that another baby for Beyonce and Jay Z may be on the way.

A source allegedly told the magazine that the couple has reconciled after they nearly got divorced, and that they’re now hiding Beyonce’s pregnancy.

“For the last month, Jay has been fiercely protective of her, just like he was when she was expecting Blue Ivy,” the source said. “He’s been doing everything he can to ensure that Bey is in a stress-free bubble. He’s informed their entire entourage that they need to use relaxed voices, mellow lighting and listen to only soft music, and he’s said that all of the food Beyoncé eats should be organic. He’s really doing his best to make sure that she’s as comfortable and healthy as possible.”

In addition, the source said, it’s been at least that long since anyone has seen Beyoncé drinking booze. “At one point, she was ordered a glass of champagne backstage to celebrate the tour’s success, but she politely declined and even rubbed her belly, maybe unconsciously. She hasn’t had a sip of alcohol since.”

The other report came from unreliable gossip website Media TakeOut, which proclaimed: “It’s now official … Beyonce announces that she’s pregnant … in the most over the top way imaginable!!!”

“Beyonce was spotted CONSISTENTLY rubbing her belly – and she had a specially made dress – with the BELLY CUT OUT. And it that’s not enough – Bey had GOLD PAINT on her tummy, to make the announcement LOUD AND CLEAR!!!” it said.

Beyonce and Jay Z are known to be a private couple, and if a sibling for Blue Ivy really is on the way, then they’ll announce it in due time but not until they’re ready.
