Is Beyonce Pregnant? Singer Cancels Show; Rumor Mill Reignites

Beyonce's Tuesday cancellation of a show in Belgium reignited rumors that the superstar might be pregnant again.

The Associated Press reports that Beyonce cancelled her May 14 concert at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp due to exhaustion and dehydration. A publicist told the AP that the singer has been advised by her doctors to rest.

She is scheduled to perform Wednesday night at the same arena, but "she is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision" as to what she will do, the AP reported, per the superstar's publicist. After Antwerp, her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour heads to Switzerland, Italy, France and Eastern Europe before hitting the U.S. in June.

In February Beyonce told Oprah Winfrey that after this tour she might have another baby.

The concert cancellation Tuesday followed a flood of Beyonce pregnancy rumors that drenched the Internet on Monday. The New York Post first set off flares about a possible Queen Bey baby, claiming that multiple sources told Page Six after last week's Met Gala in New York City that the "Bow Down" singer has a bun in the oven. Bloggers then scoured photos of her on the Met Gala red carpet and pointed to a supposed baby bump peeking out from under her belted Givenchy gown.

So is Beyonce really pregnant? The Huffington Post reached out to the 31-year-old's publicist for comment, but there is a high probability that this is just another empty rumor the Internet has run with.

What is certain is that Beyonce does want more children.

In addition to her reveal during the Oprah sit-down, she stated the following in an interview with ABC News earlier this month: “I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister. At some point ... when it's supposed to happen."

Beyonce, who famously announced her first pregnancy at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012.
