After new performance photos of Ciara hit the internet, fans stopped talking about her hot R&B single, “Body Party,” and instead started talking—and tweeting—about her supposed baby bump. The hip-hop beauty, who has been in an exclusive relationship with rapper Future for about a year, has always been in tip-top shape, and usually wears clothes that show off her flat abs and killer curves. So Twitter blew up when photos of her dancing on stage seemed to outline a very rounded belly. To add to the “Is she? Or Isn’t she?” questions, the usually scantily-clad singer was conspicuously wearing a loose leather top and matching black leather pants with a plaid shirt tied around her waist (to cover something up perhaps?!—not her usual sexy stage look by any stretch).
This isn’t the first time Ciara’s been plagued with pregnancy rumors, however. In November 2012, she was supposedly having rapper 50 Cent’s baby. NOT TRUE! So should we really believe the bump watch hoopla now? Well, whether Ciara has a baby on board or not, Ciara and Future are definitely in that honeymoon phase of love. They recently had each other’s initials tattooed on their hands, and Future told Hot 97 DJ Angie Martinez that Ciara is “the one.” Aww.
Rewind to January, and Ciara—a total romantic—sweetly told Us Weekly that the only thing she fears “is not having a family, kids and love,” and that she wants twins “when I’m ready.” So the question is, Are the rumors true? Is she ready for those twins now?
TELL US: Do you think Ciara is really pregnant this time, or is it just another internet rumor?

Hip-hop radio stations and blogs are blowing up with news that Beyoncé is working overtime, having filmed four (yes, four!) music videos in the past two months in order to have the videos—shot in Miami, New York, London and Paris—roll out to promote her upcoming album while she focuses on getting pregnant and taking maternity leave next year. A cootie patootie sibling for Blue Ivy!? Yes, please!
Sure, we’ve heard false Bey pregnancy rumors before, but this could be legit (fingers and toes crossed!). The Queen B is a total professional, and a bit Type-A, so it makes perfect sense that she would want to do the responsible thing and support her album even if she was taking time off for mommy duty part deux.
After all, she told Good Morning America in May: “I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister. At some point, when it’s supposed to happen [it will],” the Grammy-winning singer said with a smile. So it sounds like it’s supposed to happen next year!
She also shared in her HBO documentary, Beyoncé: Life is But a Dream just how much she loved being pregnant, describing it as “falling in love.” “You are so open,” she said. “You are so overjoyed. There are no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you.”
But Mrs. Carter hasn’t had the easiest road to motherhood. She famously revealed in the same doc that she had a miscarriage before having daughter Blue Ivy. “I was pregnant for the first time, and I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life,” she said. “I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like, I was feeling very maternal.”
Then she flew back to New York to get a check up, and “no heartbeat,” she said. “Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine…it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.” She explains that’s why she was so hush-hush about her second pregnancy with Blue Ivy, “because you don’t know what’s going to happen.”
I really hope for Beyoncé and Jay-Z that this news is true (for once!), because they both seem like the most doting parents on the planet, and Baby B would make such an adorable big sis.
TELL US: Do you think it’s true Beyoncé is getting ahead with work so she can take maternity leave next year?
If you haven’t already heard the news, practically everyone on earth is buzzing that the Queen Bey herself, Beyoncé, is pregnant with her second child. She hasn’t confirmed this herself, but E! reports that “multiple sources” have “exclusively confirmed” that there’s another babe growing in that famous uterus. And recent comments she’s given about wanting another little one could imply that she really is expecting. Exciting! Blue Ivy is so freaking adorable—can you imagine if she had another baby in her family? Cute, cute, cute.
But what’s not cute is this widespread speculation over whether or not Beyoncé or any other woman, for that matter, is pregnant–heck, Jezebel even went as far as to say that Beyoncé is “officially pregnant.” (Really? I haven’t heard anything official!) I mean, yes. We’re obsessed with all things baby bump, but obsessing about the uncomfirmed contents of another woman’s uterus is . . . weird.
So, instead of playing the guessing game, we’ll just groove to some old-skool Bey and think about how cute it would be if she and Jay-Z had a “Baby Boy” one day!
What do you think? Do you think it’s anybody’s business but hers whether or not she’s pregnant? Would you be excited if Beyoncé had another baby? Tell us what you think in the comments!
