According to the US Weekly, singer Beyonce Knowles and her husband, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter are expecting their first child together. A source of the 29-year old mother-to-be told US Weekly that she was surprised once she found out:
“B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” says a source of the singer, who married rapper Jay-Z in 2008. “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.”
Friends of the couple are already expressing their well-wishes for the parents-to-be.
“Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be,” record executive Kevin Liles, who has known the rapper for years, tells Us. “I wish them the best.”
Knowles’ sister Solange — and mom to Julez, 6 — agrees.
“She’s got the most beautiful heart,” she tells Us of her big sis. “She’ll be a great mom.”
