Beyoncé Knowles is pregnant with her second child, a source has confirmed.
According to E! News, the Grammy-winning singer and husband Jay-Z are expecting a baby brother or sister for their 16-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
Multiple sources are said to have confirmed the news to the outlet although the star has yet to publicly address speculation.
Music mogul Russell Simmons seemed to have some inside information as he took to Twitter Friday offering well-wishes to the couple.
"Congratulations Jay-Z and Beyoncé," he wrote.
Russell included a link to his celebrity website Global Grind, which cited E! for confirmation on the story. He did not offer any further details.
Beyoncé fuelled baby rumours earlier this week when she cancelled a concert at the last minute.
The singer is currently on her The Mrs Carter Show world tour. She was due to take to the stage in Belgium on Tuesday but cited sickness from dehydration and exhaustion.
"She is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision," an email to The Associated Press explained.
The New York Post claimed at the time she was expecting.
This came after Beyoncé was seen sporting a fuller stomach than usual while on stage in London. She was deemed to have covered up her curves while at the recent Met Gala in New York City.
Beyoncé has made no secret of her desire to expand her brood with Jay-Z.
The star admitted in an interview with Good Morning America last week she wanted Blue to have some "company" from a sibling.
"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," the singer smiled.
