Multiple sources confirmed the pregnancy to E! News on Friday after the New York Post went public Monday with sourced rumors of a second pregnancy. The singer had nixed a performance of "The Mrs. Carter Show" in Belgium on Tuesday "as a result of dehydration and exhaustion," further fueling preggers rumors.
She posted a handwritten apology note on Tumblr to her fans in Antwerp.
The Post's story earlier this week came from "music insiders" in the wake of the Met Gala, which saw Beyonce in a custom-made Givenchy number with a high cinched waist and pattern that obscured any details of her abdominal region. Daughter Blue Ivy Carter was born in January 2012.
Music-industry honcho Russell Simmons tweeted "Congratulations Jay-Z & Beyonce..." on Friday, linking to a Global Grind story citing the E! News report.
