In Touch claims to have spoken with a source who confirmed the baby's gender. We seem to recall reading somewhere that Bey's sister Solange "Loose Lips" Knowles also said the child was a girl. But we choose to believe reports that the fetus her surrogate mom is carrying is a boy. Either way, it will still be Beyonce's baby.
“Beyoncé is thrilled she’s having a daughter,” confides a close friend of the singer’s, explaining that while Beyoncé and her husband, Jay-Z, would be happy to have a healthy child of either sex, she’d secretly been hoping for a girl. “She and her mother are so close, and she’s wanted to have that relationship with her own child.”
And though she and Jay-Z, 41, are like a second set of parents to their nephew Daniel, Beyoncé is a girlie girl at heart and longs to share her passion for sparkly outfits with a Mini-Me. Indeed, the singer — who adores the clothes her mom, Tina Knowles, designs for her — has been so eager to play dress-up with her baby that she’s already been breaking the bank at stores ranging from Gucci and Louis Vuitton to Gap and OshKosh B’gosh. “Her family’s afraid there won’t be anything left to buy for her baby shower in December!” the friend laughs.
