To say the internet is buzzing over Beyonce’s upcoming due date would be a total understatement. The internet is on fire with rumors and headlines claiming the reigning king and queen of music have welcomed their long awaited princess or prince.
The rumors started two days ago when a few entertainment sites claimed Beyonce checked into St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in New York City. The stories even went so far as to say she booked half the maternity ward and sent the hospital into a tizzy over her alleged arrival.
But the most recent baby chatter is no match for what the past five months have been like in terms of Beyonce’s pregnancy. It started in August when she revealed her baby bump at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Since then, there have been headlines covering every aspect of this pregnancy, from the infamous stomach folding incident on Australia TV, to Kelly Rowland letting the sex of the baby slip.
Whether you’re fascinated by the baby drama or ready for it to be over, Beyonce should be about to pop, if she hasn’t already. In a cute little video she released after filming the video for “Countdown,” she said she was six-months pregnant as of September 23rd… you do the math. Then the “baby’s here” coverage will begin!
But until a rep confirms the news, we’ll continue to patiently wait to hear the sex and name of the baby — some Twitter folk say it’s Tiana-May Carter, others say it’s Beyonce II.
But at this point, it really doesn’t matter what the name is — we just want to know that the mother and child are both doing well.
