Beyonce is not expecting a baby, and that’s the official word from her husband Jay-Z. The rumors began last week when Bey made an appearance with Hov to promote D’usse cognac in NYC and one particular photo of her in a form-fitting Roberto Cavalli dress got tongues wagging.
When Jay-Z walked the red carpet for the NBA 2K13 game release at his 40/40 club earlier this week, E! News probed him about the rumors, and he had a little fun with it. In response to whether he was expecting another baby, he initially responded, “Tonight? No.” And when asked if he was expecting a baby in nine months–”Not in nine months,” he said. “Absolutely not.”
Before that? “No,” he insisted. “Not in one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight or nine months.”
Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles is usually the one tasked with fielding questions about her daughter and rumored pregnancies, but looks like Jay knows how to handle them just as well.
Last night Jay opened his new 40/40 club at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with guests like his Roc Nation signees Rihanna and J. Cole.
