We first heard of Alicia Keyes and her baby conceived out of wedlock with a married man. Don’t get me wrong, I believe every baby is a gift from God. The problem I have is when a baby is conceived out of wedlock and with a married man.
Next we have Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon who are pregnant. Today, we received official word along with confirmation that Jay-Z and Beyonce are pregnant. It’s wonderful to know the last two pregnancies were conceived well after the marriages of these two superstar families. Something quite unusual in Celebrity land these days.
For those who are ready to protest the statement that these couples are pregnant, I know, its not the man who is carrying the baby and most will argue the man has absolutely no birth related issues. Some will argue that the woman is pregnant,and is the only one who feels every pain of a life growing inside her. But it takes two to make a baby and the man does indeed have some pains from a pregnancy. Some fathers even feel the actual morning sickness and other symptoms his significant other is experiencing.
But I digress. According to MediaTakeOut.com, it’s confirmed, Beyonce and Jay -Z are expecting their first child. Approximately four weeks ago, this celebrity news giant got a hint of the pregnancy from an undisclosed source. At the time of the disclosure, the source, someone very close to the family, asked that the news be held until the mega super star was well past her gestation period. Well she is now well past the 3 month safety zone.
Everyone is overwhelmingly happy with the news of the couples first child. Beyonce is expected to deliver sometime during mid April 2011. And if you remember the wedding, Beyonce and Jay-Z were married in April.
The announcement should come through Peoples Magazine soon. However, MediaTakeOut.com is claiming first dibs on breaking this one.
Congratulations to Jay-Z and Beyonce. We pray for a healthy baby in April 2011.
