Tina Knowles confirms Beyoncé's not pregnant

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.

Vanilla Ice, Milli Vanilly and MC Hammer. MORAL TO THE STORY? (In Forest Gump voice) Like momma used to say: Beauty fades but TALENT lasts a lifetime.

    Too funny...their kids woud not be that great looking, if Jay-Z has anything to do with it. Have anyone really took a good look at this guy? Beyonce, beautiful, long as she keep that make up on. And NO, I am not jealous – just my opinon on them both. I don't know her, so no need to be jealous.

    their private life is theirs but they should try have to have a baby and beyonce should forget about her curves and give jay z an heir.whether she likes it or not her scientific upgraded beauty will fade. nature cannot be cheated.

    Also, Brian was right when he said Beyonce "dont want kids now cause she needs that body 2 sell records". Lets be real, if Beyonce was fat, dark and ugly black women would not buy her albums. Her physical appearance is unfortunately, her #1 selling point which is very sad. Its quite obvious that Beyonce her mom and her whole team behind her are aware of this. She cant be like Jill Scott who is a larger woman and expect to sell records. Jill Scott, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill all have TALENT and whether they are fat or pregnant we buy their records because we know the music will still be good. But the whole "BEYONCE BRAND" is 90# about how fine she is and 10# about the actual music.

    That is crazy! Why haven't Beyonce became pregnant yet? Either Jay-Z has a low sperm count or she is taking birth controls ok! If he can have children then someone else might step in to have his baby since he wants one. If she is worried about figure! Plz! Do she want to keep her man?

    How does anyone know if she wants kids are not. You don't live with them. I pray that they have healthy children or maybe they will have one. She can get her body back after having a child. Evidently someone thinks her mother has talent. i wish them the best of luck. I have other things to worry about; other than Jay-Z & Beyonce'. I wish they could get me a job!!!

    Hopefully we wont hear any bad news like their breaking up. Lately it seems like a lot of celebreties are breaking up. On the bright side if they were to break up I would be there to make Beyonce feel better. I may not have Jay-Z beat money wise but as far as the ladies go....lets just say I make Wilt Chamberlain look like a monk. Best of all im not shooting blanks! (:
