Beyonce and Jay Z are not currently planning to have a fourth baby via surrogate, despite an inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We're told on background that it's not true.
According to OK!, the superstar couple is looking to expand their family just seven months after the birth of their twins. A so-called "source" tells the magazine, "With their marriage problems behind them, they don't see a reason to wait." This time around, however, the 36-year-old singer will supposedly hire a surrogate to carry her child.
"Surrogacy makes the most sense," says the outlet's supposed insider, who notes that Beyonce suffered a miscarriage prior to giving birth to 6-year-old daughter Blue Ivy in 2012. "They plan to cover every last expense to make the surrogate's experience seamless," adds the seemingly phony source.
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Beyonce and Jay Z, who exclusively tells us on the condition of anonymity that they're not exploring surrogacy at this time. Should the couple's plans change sometime in the future, we'll certainly report it, but the two simply aren't planning for a fourth child right now.
Our impeccable insider actually reminded us that this isn't the first time Beyonce has been plagued by false surrogate rumors. When she was pregnant with Blue Ivy and even after she gave birth, some speculated that the singer wore a prosthetic baby bump while another woman carried her child. Beyonce later told People, "It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy... [I thought] 'Where did they come up with this?'"
And while it's true that Beyonce experienced some minor complications when she gave birth to her twins last June, which is probably why the tabloid is speculating that she would use a surrogate if she had more kids. However, that's not a discussion that's really being had in the couple's household.
It should be noted, OK! has very little insight when it comes to Beyonce and Jay Z's family plans. Gossip Cop busted the unreliable tabloid in October 2016 for wrongly reporting that the couple was adopting a baby. The singer announced that she was pregnant with twins just months later. We also recently called out the publication for making up a bogus story about Beyonce and Jay fighting over whether to raise their kids in New York or Los Angeles.
In addition to fabricating articles about the famous couple's children, the untrustworthy outlet also frequently alleges that Beyonce and Jay Z are headed for a divorce. Of course, time has proven many of the tabloid's stories about the spouses to be completely wrong. Gossip Cop can now confirm that there's no surrogacy in the works either.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
