Tina Knowles wants to set the record straight: Daughter Beyoncé and her husband Jay-Z are not expecting a baby – at least, not yet.
“I’m here to clear the rumors up. The truth is that it’s not Beyoncé that’s pregnant. It’s me,” Knowles says with a smile in an interview airing Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Really? “I’m kidding y’all. I’m 56. No, no, it’s not true [about Beyoncé]. Not right now.”
