Beyoncé says her pregnancy was totally real and not at all fake
You've heard the rumours. While Beyoncé was carrying the most special child in her very own womb, evil and mean and devious people who were full of jealosy and badness, suggested that all she was carrying was a nice, soft pillow or a specially made water balloon. I know. So sad what people will stoop to. I personally to stayed away from that trashy talk because I live in abject fear of getting sued I have standards (spoiler: I really don't). And now Beyoncé herself is finally putting those rumours to rest with the ever-selfless help of People Magazine.
"From the moment she stepped into the spotlight, Beyoncé has been at the center of her fair share of rumors. But even People’s 2012 Most Beautiful Woman was caught off guard when, while pregnant with her first child, whispers started swirling that she and husband Jay-Z had settled on a surrogate to carry their daughter. “That was crazy. It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy,” WELL-KNOWN FACT: SAYING SOMETHING IS CRAZY TWICE, MAKES IT TWICE AS TRUE the songstress, 30, tells People. “[I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?’” But perhaps the person most affected by the surrogacy speculation was not the expectant mom herself, but rather her own mother, Tina Knowles. “I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months,” she says. ”As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous.” Alluding to an Australian interview in which it was later suggested that Beyoncé had been sporting a prosthetic bump, Knowles says, “It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid.” Fortunately, the protective mom adds, her daughter’s global fan following offered plenty of support. “There was so much love and well wishes from all over the world — it made it easier to deal with the stupid rumors.” But the dust didn’t settle once the couple welcomed their baby girl. Amidst the joy of welcoming Blue Ivy on Jan. 7, the new parents were said to have upset the hospital with their high list of security demands — a rumor that Beyoncé clarifies is “so crazy” and “ridiculous. I MEAN EVERYBODY BRINGS THEIR OWN GOLD-PLATED BIRTHING THRONE, 12-PERSON PRIVATE MILITIA AND STATE-OF-THE-ART DECONTAMINATION TENT TO THE HOSPITAL.”
