However, in a video posted on the entertainment site TMZ, Tina Knowles - appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show - joked that she, and not her daughter, was the one who was expecting. "I"m here to clear the rumours up," News.com.au quoted her as saying.
"The truth is that it"s not Beyonce that"s pregnant, it"s me. No, no, it"s not true. Not right now. I"m looking forward to it. With all the rumours by now I should have about five or six grandchildren," she added.
