It’s been all over the news that Beyonce is pregnant with her second child, even though her team tried denying it through multiple websites earlier this week. No doubt, Beyonce is pissed as hell that she didn’t get to announce it herself. We all know she likes to make a spectacle, and having her pregnancy announcement leaked early is sure to be making her angry. However, congratulations are in order. The world’s most powerful musical duo (don’t tell Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, as if!) will now have another heir to their empire – Blue Ivy Carter, move over kid.
There are reports [unsubstantiated, but then again, so were the pregnancy rumors] that Beyonce wants her second child to be a boy. In this day and age, that’s pretty easy to do, especially with in vitro fertilization. Beyonce has the resources and wealth to be able to do that, and she’s powerful enough that people will be discreet about it.
Is there any truth to this? Well, Bey has mentioned that she would love for her daughter to have a younger sibling to play with, but she was careful not to pinpoint whether she wants a girl or a boy. Then again, Jay-Z has been vocal in his desire for a son. Despite the front that she puts on, Beyonce lets Jay-Z handle a lot more behind-the-scenes that people get to see. When it comes to business and public image, he is the one who works with their publicists and who stays quiet in the background. I mean, how often do you see Jay-Z pulling the kind of stunts that Beyonce does? Don’t let that fool you – he has as much of a say in everything as Bey does, and actually, he often has more.
In this case, he wants a son – and did she oblige? Either way, we’ll find out soon enough, but I would not be surprised at all to hear about it.
