Fans have started to speculate that Beyoncé is pregnant with her fourth child after the singer shared a series of pics rocking an all-purple outfit that embraced her body in all the right places.
Another day, another pregnancy rumor for Queen Bey.
The “Crazy in Love” singer has sent the Beyhive into a frenzy after sharing a series of pics rocking a lavender Gingham dress with a thigh-high slit and matching accessories in different shades of purple.

Knowles also made sure to share close-ups of her sunglasses, snakeskin purse, and mate purple lips while also posing with purple hydrangeas in her hands.
Since Beyoncé has earned a reputation of being secretive not only about her music projects but also about her personal life, some of her most hard-die fans started to read way too much into the setting of the pictures and the fact that Knowles is rocking a thicker frame.
“So I think she’s trying to tell us she’s pregnant and all the purple it’s because the baby will be born in February which is February birthstone [sic]” suggested one user.
While another pointed out the singer’s “swollen ankles” as proof that she’s expecting:
“She definitely pregnant you can see it in her face AND them ankles!! Child!!! I’m so ready for y’all world domination!! Have like 10 Carter babies!!
And a different user also shared an elaborate theory:
“You know, I sat here and focused on these three pics you posted in purple standing around purple... now, I try not to be the one who implies pregnancy when a woman gains happy weight, but sis...you won’t catch me slipping this time! Tell these people you’re naming the new baby Lilac! Lilac is the name of a purple shrub or flower. Whew, the thought process!”
In the middle of her “On The Run II” tour last year, fans claimed Knowles was sporting a visible baby bump that she allegedly tried to cover with her outfits.
And although she usually ignores the noise, Bey decided to clear the air at the Ohio stop of the tour, rubbing her stomach as she sang “I woke up like this,” —lyrics of her hit song “Flawless.”
Maybe tired of the pregnancy rumors, Beyoncé opened up about her weight gain in the September 2018 issue of Vogue magazine, revealing that after having an emergency C-section to welcome the twins into the world, her body was not the same.
“After the C-section, my core felt different. It had been major surgery,” she wrote. “Some of your organs are shifted temporarily, and in rare cases, removed temporarily during delivery. I am not sure everyone understands that.”

“During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be. After six months, I started preparing for Coachella. I became vegan temporarily, gave up coffee, alcohol, and all fruit drinks. But I was patient with myself and enjoyed my fuller curves. My kids and husband did, too.”

Knowles revealed that even after a year, her thighs, breasts, arms, and shoulders were still fuller. She also had a mommy pouch and was “in no rush to get rid of it.”
“Whenever I’m ready to get a six-pack, I will go into beast zone and work my ass off until I have it,” she said. “But right now, my little FUPA and I feel like we are meant to be.”
Beyoncé hasn’t addressed the current pregnancy rumors and considering her track record, she will remain mum about it for now.
