Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles has laughed off reports her superstar daughter is expecting her first child by joking about the pregnancy story on TV.
The Crazy In Love superstar is at the centre of fervid gossip she and rapper husband Jay-Z are preparing to welcome a baby.

The speculation appeared to be grounded in truth when the couple’s pal, former Def Jam president Kevin Liles, congratulated the stars on the happy news, saying, “Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be. I wish them the best.”

But during an interview on Wednesday with Ellen DeGeneres, Beyonce’s mother shrugged off rumours she is expecting another grandchild.

She told the TV host, “I heard that (she’s pregnant), but I’m here to clear the rumours up. The truth is, it’s not Beyonce who’s pregnant – it’s me. I’m actually not, I’m 56! No, no – it’s not true. Not right now. I’m looking forward to it (when it happens). By now, with all the rumours, I should have about five or six grandchildren.”
