1. It was announced Friday, based on multiple sources, that Beyoncé is pregnant.
2. From the E! News post:
The news follows rampant speculation that the “Countdown” songbird was pregnant, even as the couple remained tight-lipped about their ever-growing family.

3. Pregnancy rumors began circulating after she canceled a tour date in Belgium due to “exhaustion.”
4. From a post written earlier this week:
