Despite the rumor mill running wild with claims that she had already delivered her first child, Beyonce was spotted in New York City yesterday with her mom — and her infamous baby bump.

This is the first time we’ve seen the the “Countdown” singer since rumors of her delivery began floating around shortly after Christmas. Days later those rumors were silenced when she was spotted having an intimate dinner with hubby Jay-Z on New Year’s Eve. The silence didn’t last long though. On January 4, reports that Beyonce had flown to Houston to give birth in her hometown surfaced, which were partially believable since she, Jay-Z, and her mother were all born on the fourth of the month.

Beyonce’s most recent spotting further proves that Baby Carter has yet to arrive. While paparazzi scrambled to get a shot of Beyonce, she reportedly told her bodyguard, “Leave them alone. They’re fine.” It wouldn’t be surprising if Bey intentionally let them photograph her to quell baby buzz rumors.
