*Another round of rumors claiming Beyonce is pregnant with her first child have flared up on the Web – this time from a source for Us Weekly who claims the pregnancy came as a total surprise to the singer and her husband, rapper-mogul Jay-Z.

“B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn’t ready to be a mother just yet … She really wanted to get her album done and tour the world again,” the source said. 

The magazine also quotes industry veteran Kevin Liles, who has known Jay-Z for years.

“Jay has been all about family since I met him, and he’s always going to be,” he said. “I wish them the best.”

The couple, who married in 2008 following a six-year courtship, have been plagued by pregnancy rumors ever since they began dating.
