It was back in August 2016 when ‘Beyonce is pregnant’ news began to float around the paparazzi when she was spotted looking heavier while in Capri, Italy with her loving husband Jay Z and adorable Ivy Blue.
She appeared to be in a fantastic mood as she walked barefoot with Jay Z by her side surrounded by fans and taking in the sights.
At the time, the usually svelte Beyonce appeared to have put on some weight and seemed to have taken her shoes off to aide her swollen feet as she walked around town.
She was seen covering her midsection with her shopping bag as Jay Z and her entourage helped her through a crowd of fans after visiting a drug store at one point. She briefly waved to her fans but appeared concerned that her midsection was exposed and quickly made sure to place the black bag in front again.
She was spotted going on boat trips, walks around the town in Capri, and yachting with one thing in common – she was dead-set on covering her belly with whatever she had available.
After suffering years upon years of the press claiming she was pregnant but being vehemently wrong, Beyonce was able to slip under the radar and not set the alarms off with magazine editors, but the proof was in how protective she was of her belly.
Fast forward 5 months later, and Beyonce surprises the world with announcing she is pregnant with twins via Instagram by posting a picture of herself in-the-nude showing off her burgeoning baby bump and posting –
‘We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters’
