Put away those knitting needles – Beyoncé isn't getting a visit from the stork just yet.
On today's episode of the "Ellen DeGeneres Show," the singer's mom, Tina Knowles, shoots down recent reports that Beyoncé, 29, and hubby Jay-Z, 40, are expecting a baby.
"I’m here to clear the rumors up. The truth is that it’s not Beyoncè that’s pregnant," said 56-year-old Knowles. "It’s me."
She was joking, of course, but Miss Tina has heard so many false stories that the couple is gearing up for diaper duty that she's learned to have a sense of humor about it all.
"With all the rumors by now I should have five or six grandchildren," jokes Knowles, who is grandma to daughter Solange's 6-year-old son, Julez.
Regardless, Knowles acknowledges that Beyoncé and Jay-Z are crazy in love and tells DeGeneres that she can't wait for the day when those baby rumors become real.
"I'm looking forward to it," she says.
