Speculation is building that Beyonce is pregnant with her second baby. The superstar singer has made no secret of her desire to have another child with husband Jay-Z, and now reports suggest that her dreams have come true.
Insiders told the New York Post that Beyonce, 31, is indeed pregnant, saying that she carefully tried to hide her burgeoning baby bump when she attended the MET gala last week in a high-waisted Givenchy gown.

Photographs have also emerged of the singer, who is currently on the road with her spectacular Mrs Carter World Tour, showing what appears to be a small bump while on stage.
Beyonce welcomed her little girl Blue Ivy in January 2012, and just last week said she thought her daughter needed some "company".
"I would love more children," she said in an interview with Good Morning America. "I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister.
"At some point, when it's supposed to happen," she added with a smile.
In the past, the hardworking songstress has spoken about juggling her work commitments with being a mum, and has said she is determined to give Blue a "normal" childhood.
"I am very protective," she said. "I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal childhood. In the back of my mind, she's my priority.
"And life is completely different now. So I feel really, really lucky that I can still do what I love, and now have a way bigger meaning. And that's to be her mother."
