    let’s hope baby looks like mom. oh please make baby look like mom and not dad. good timing. since her album flopped, this should sell a few units.

  • Nikki

    Congrats to them both but why a big deal for the websites or paper and magz she is not the first woman to get pregnant nor will she be the last.
    I feel bad for the woman who want a baby more than anything else and have to read papers having it splashed all over and wishing it was her or easy for her.
    I know friends who have it shoved in their faces and sitting in a room crying her eyes out over it and you can do nothing or say nothing just try to offer comfort of a friend.

  • Yesss

    Good 4 U Bey!

    Can you read? The article clearly states that she’s 29. Some people actually take time and plan their pregnancies. Some of the comments on here show what a sad state of affairs we’re in where people think having a baby at 29 is old. Not everybody has to be a teenage mom.

  • Topaz Horizon


    Actually, Beyonce’s been telling the media since she was in her teens that she’d love to be a mom when she’s 30. She also said in the Septemebr issue of InStyle, which came out in August, that she’s really ready for motherhood.

  • Gloria

    Congrats B n J!! I wish all the best(bestest of all bests). I pray u both will live Happily 2gether wif ur kids 4ever, there’l b no separation,nor divorce IJN!!Amen!…

  • vaki

    @Tauri: Do you even know how pathetic you sound? God help you.

  • Nols

    Am happy for Jigga man and B…may God bless ur family!!!

  • Pepe

    Yessss Bey!

  • guest123

    Will the baby come out wearing a weave and covered in grease? Yes yes I know, mean comment, but she is too stuck on herself for someone that is not very attractive. The oily skin, the wigs, the heavy makeup, the legs that look like trees. This women is popular for one reason only, and that is she is a role model for the MEDIOCRE. Every woman who feels bad about herself for having to wear weaves and b/c they are short or have ‘weight issues’, LOVES Beyonce. That’s why she is so popular. I guess Beyonce does have a purpose. Sick of her I guess? Too much exposure…

    Who cares? Stop wasting our time with all this glitz and glammer while people are struggling to make ends meat, to find a job, and to just survive! We’ll have to hear this bull**** for the next 5 years or more even though women have babies every day, work 2 jobs, or work and go to school just to take care of their children.

  • Chelsea

    I think it’s amazing and its times Like this that good news lifts people’s spirits it sure did mine u need to get over yourself putting a strong woman down ! If she wants to cover herself in lard n die her hair pink what has it got to do with you go take yourself in a corner and have a word with yourself it’s people with comments Like yours that cause innocent people to self distruct your a vile person who probably has no one a sad life and always will !!! Vent over !!

  • Shawana

    Congrats goes out to Beyonce and Jay-Z welcome to parenthood, every day will be different.@Guest 123 entertaining people like u and me is what she does, its her career. Motherhood is always a joyous occasion, let her and her fans have that moment. How can the world ever progress with people like yourself making these types of comments. What does her wearing weave have to do with anything, make valid points!!!! If you’re over her turn the tv or radio, but if you haven’t figured it out by now she’s not going anywhere. I think people like you hide behind the screens because you’re insecure and intimidated by her. @ K you how can you be mad at this woman’s career, its not her fault the economy is in the toilet, blame that on Bush!!!! So what is we hear it for the next 5 years, motherhood is such a privilege and not everyone is able to experience that. Just because she’s not struggling doesn’t mean she doesn’t work hard. Stop being a crab(pulling others down with your negativity).Without change there is no progress.

  • guest123

    To all you ignorant beyonce fans, just b/c I don’t like her or think she is worthy or the attention she gets, doesn’t mean I am unattractive or insecure. I am better looking than beyonce, even coming out of the shower, with no makeup and my own hair.

    Some people are just sick of this person, esp. b/c she does not deserve all the attention and the praise, esp. in the looks dept.

    Yes, I am jealous, of her money. But not her looks, and if had to have her looks to get her money, I’d stay beautiful and broke.

    I get to express my opinion, just like you do, and that’s that.

    And it is true, that she is a role model for the average, the mediocre, not the gorgeous model types of the world. If that makes someone ‘self destruct’, than that’s on them.

  • Mina

    And we all just thought she got fat :P

  • Marissa

    This will be the most talented, most business savy, most gorgeous beautiful baby with the biggest lips anyone has seen…. in other words Beyonce and Jay Z have an EPIC WIN :)

  • niecy
