Beyonce Plays Coy About Pregnancy Rumors (VIDEO)


Beyonce played coy when the topic of those persistent pregnancy rumors came up during an interview with the "Today" show, further raising the question: Is she or isn't she?

Savannah Guthrie sat down with Salma Hayek, Creative Director of Gucci Frida Giannini and the "Standing On The Sun" singer to talk about their "Chime for Change" campaign for female empowerment. The "Today" host couldn't help but mention the pregnancy rumors that have been circulating for weeks.

"I would be remiss if I didn't give you a chance to dispel any rumors about whether you're expecting," Guthrie said in a pre-taped interview.

"What kind of rumor?" Beyonce asked, laughing. "What? Huh? Huh? I don't know what you're talking about."

She might have laughed it off, but she didn't deny it either.

"Mystery remains unsolved," Guthrie added on-air Monday, noting that when she saw the singer onstage at the "Chime For Change" concert in London on Saturday she was wearing a leather bodysuit and there was no sign of a baby bump. "Unless she's like 30 seconds pregnant, I don't know."

Speculation over whether Beyonce is pregnant with her second child mounted after the Met Gala on May 6 when the Internet went crazy over a possible baby bump. Then she canceled a concert and E! News reported they had "confirmed" with sources she is pregnant again. Those claims were quashed when a Hot 97 director said he spoke with Jay-Z and the rapper denied they were expecting their second child.

Over the weekend, the 31-year-old posted a photo that seemed to hint there really isn't a baby on board (yet). In the snapshot, Beyonce sits on Jay-Z's lap while sipping red wine at a restaurant.

Although she is decidedly hush-hush about her private life, Beyonce did reveal her first pregnancy in a very public way -- onstage at the 2011 Video Music Awards. With her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour continuing into September, there is still plenty of time for the singer to make a big announcement.
