It's a very special time for expectant parents Jay-Z and Beyonce -- but has the father-to-be already experienced the joys of parenthood?
According to a new report, Jay-Z is already a daddy. Star magazine claims the hip hop mogul has a secret love child: a nine-year-old son from a long-ago tryst with a Trinidadian model.
The father of alleged baby mama Shenelle Scott's ex-boyfriend makes the shocking claims.
"At the time [he] was born, my son Malik thought he was his child, but they did DNA tests," Jerald Andrews told Star.
"It's been determined that [the child is] Jay-Z's baby."
After the paternity test, claims Andrews, Jay-Z arranged for Scott and the baby to return to Trinidad, where he continues to support them.
"Shenelle told me that Jay-Z gave her $1 million to keep her mouth shut," Andrews said. "My understanding is that he's paying her child support."
"Shenelle took the money and bought herself a really nice house in Trinidad that the whole family lives in now."
What's more, the man claims that Jay-Z is still in contact with Scott and the boy.
"She says he's a good father and he has a lot of interest in [his son]," Andrews said. "It was a big old mess at one time, but I think once they resolved the issue of fatherhood, of paternity, I think things started to level off."
SheKnows has reached out to Jay-Z's rep for comment, but has received no response.
