Blue Ivy is going to be a big sis

In breaking news on Friday, sources confirmed to E! News that Beyoncé is indeed pregnant with her second child. Speculation had been running rampant all week that the "Single Ladies" singer might be carrying her second child.

However, the singer's mother, Tina Knowles, appeared on Access Hollywood Live and claimed that there wasn't any truth to the rumor.

She said, "Not right now."

Perhaps her mother wasn't in the loop or did Mrs. Knowles mean that an announcement was not going to happen just yet? Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z have yet to confirm the news reported by the entertainment channel, but E! News clearly heard from a very inside source.

The other big clue to the superstar's pregnancy was the cancellation of her concert this week in Belgium due to "exhaustion and dehydration." As many moms know, the first trimester can be a rough one if morning sickness is involved. Just ask Kate Middleton.

The Grammy winner has never canceled a show before, so this was out-of-the-norm behavior. Beyoncé even took to her Tumblr account with a handwritten apology letter to fans.

She wrote, "I've never postponed a show in my life. It was very hard for me. I promise I will make it up very soon. I'm sorry if I disappointed you."

"Thank you for your concern," Mrs. Carter continued. "I'm feeling much better now and I'm ready to give you a great show."
