Those once-persistent pregnancy rumors are slowly losing urgency as Beyoncé quietly does her best to show that she's not expecting her second child.
First came a photo on her Tumblr account that showed the star sipping a glass of wine while sitting in husband Jay-Z's lap at an eatery.
And then on Saturday, the 31-year-old stepped out in New York to help Kanye West ring in his 36th year while wearing a crop top and pencil skirt that would do a rather poor job of concealing a baby bump.
Bey's team has already denied that she's presently awaiting a sibling for her year-old daughter Blue Ivy, and the singer joked with "Today's" Savannah Guthrie earlier this month that she didn't even know what rumors the morning show anchor was referring to.
"What kind of rumor?" the star replied to Guthrie's inquiry. "What? Huh? I don't know what you're talking about."
