At the end of 2011 internet rumours claimed Beyonce had given birth to her baby girl, but the pregnant singer has been seen today for the first time since the speculation began.
Beyonce has been exclusively pictured stroking her tummy as she was escorted out of a New York office building by a body guard.
The 30-year-old singer, who was dressed in skinny jeans and a blazer, used a huge patterned scarf to cover her stomach.
Beyonce was wearing gold heels, albeit much lower than her usual six inch favourites.
It was the first time Beyonce has been pictured since December 21 but witnesses had spotted the star celebrating New Year’s Eve with her husband Jay-Z at Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn, New York.
Her younger sibling Solange, 25, confirmed her sister was very much still pregnant when the clock struck midnight.
Solange tweeted: “Shout out to my sister for being THE cutest pregnant woman ever!”
Baby rumours reached fever pitch on December 30 with reports that Beyoncé had given welcomed a daughter called Tiana May Carter.
The news came after reports suggested that staff at St Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital – a private facility in New York – had been told to prepare for a VIP arrival.
