Jay-Z responded to rumors that wife and new mom Beyoncé is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child.
When asked Wednesday night if a sibling for Blue Ivy is on the way, Jay-Z told E! News correspondents, “no.”
Photos of Beyoncé in an animal-print dress caused speculation that the Dreamgirls actress was rocking a baby bump, and Bey’s rep didn’t exactly refute the gossip.
“I do not comment on her personal life,” the spokesperson said.
Baby Blue Ivy is almost 10 months old and while Bey has said that she does want more children, she has yet to publicly state when she wants to add to her family.
“I don’t know about soon, but one day,” she told “Entertainment Tonight” in May about the prospect of having more kids.
As much as Beyoncé loves motherhood, telling Anderson Cooper that it’s “one of the reasons I’m here,” Jay clarified that they aren’t pregnant now and won’t be in the near future.
“Not in nine months,” Jay said. “Absolutely not … Not in one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight or nine months.”
