Beyoncé sparks pregnancy rumours in new photos

It looks like Beyoncé and Jay Z might be ready to make their daughter Blue Ivy a big sister. The powerhouse couple are at the focus of rumours after being seen in Los Angeles on Sunday, during which time Beyoncé appeared to be keeping her stomach under wraps.

Beyoncé stepped out for dinner and the Golden Globes after-parties with her husband, and kept her arms firmly crossed over her stomach as she left the Hollywood restaurant Son of a Gun. Wearing an oversized khaki jacket which served to conceal any hint of a bump, the star was beaming as she walked to a waiting car with Jay Z following closely behind.

The 34-year-old singer wore similarly casual attire when she joined her mother Tina's birthday celebrations earlier in the month, donning a parka and beanie hat for a family meal at Del Friscos Grille in Santa Monica, Calif.

Any news of a pregnancy could well be confirmed when she returns to the Super Bowl's halftime show in February. Beyoncé is confirmed to join Coldplay onstage during their halftime set, after she collaborated on the song Hymn for the Weekend.

The couple, who recently celebrated the fourth birthday of their daughter Blue Ivy, are no stranger to pregnancy rumours. Exactly a year ago Beyoncé fuelled speculation that she was expecting baby number two after posting an Instagram photo of herself buried in sand on the beach – with a big bump on her stomach.

However her friend and former Destiny's Child bandmate Michelle Williams spoke out to deny that her friend was expecting during an appearance on The View, explaining: "You know, when she was pregnant, people said she wasn't pregnant, and you know, it's just no truth to it, sorry!"
