LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Tina Knowles has denied a report that daughter Beyonce is pregnant with her first child.
“No, it’s not true right now,” Tina told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover during her visit to Thursday’s Access Hollywood Live. “It’s gonna happen when it’s time… but not right now.”
Tina first clarified the rumor to Ellen DeGeneres on her show on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, Us Weekly quoted sources that claimed to the mag that the “Crazy In Love” singer was expecting – and already in her first trimester.
“B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet,” a source told the mag. “She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again.”
Another source claimed to the mag that Beyonce considered the news, “a gift from God and she’s so happy.”
Tina said that although Beyonce isn’t pregnant, she couldn’t wait for the superstar singer to have a little one of her own with husband Jay-Z.
“I harass her all the time,” Tina told Billy and Kit. “But, you know, it’ll come when it’s time.”
Tina added that Jay-Z, whom Beyonce married in 2008, is a great son-in-law.
“I’m very blessed to have jay as my son-in-law,” she said. “He’s an amazing man. He really is. He’s just a really smart guy… and very charming and a good person.”
