Dec. 30, 2011 – The Internet exploded on Friday when reports surfaced that Beyonce was heading in to deliver her and Jay-Z’s first child.
** Edited: the rumors have been shot down and the baby born was not Beyonce’s **
Beyonce originally proudly unveiled her pregnancy bump at the MTV Music Awards back in August to the delight of Jay-Z but the couple did not announce the due date. Now, everyone from Access Hollywood to Good Morning America and Daily Mail have announced that Beyonce is either having her child today or had it last night.
According to Media Take Out, two nurses at St. Luke’s Roosevelt hospital in New York City told the website earlier this week that the medical facility was expecting a “Celebrity VIP” and most people decided it had to be Beyonce. Other celebrities who have given birth at St. Luke’s include Natalie Portman and Alicia Keys.
While neither Beyonce nor Jay-Z have confirmed it yet, reports on Twitter claim the two had a baby girl and named her Tiana May Carter. However, with no confirmation from the couple or their representatives, this is still just listed as rumors.
Still, considering how long the couple waited before telling the world they were expecting to begin with, their silence can’t always be taken as a denial. When word comes through, you will hear it here.
