Three years after they welcomed daughter Blue Ivy, Beyoncé and rapper husband Jay Z are reportedly planning on their second baby.
Daily Mail recently pointed out the R&B diva has been strategically hiding her stomach area with several objects in public for the last three months.
Bey certainly fueled pregnancy rumors when she was photographed covering her belly with a large black leather tote in New York City on July 15.
Earlier in the week, the "7/11" singer was also spotted artfully shielding her midriff with her Apple laptop.
According to Hollywood Life, Beyoncé sought womanly advice from Kim Kardashian, since she was having trouble conceiving Blue Ivy's younger sibling.
"She's even talked to Kim about the difficult process of having a baby and different alternatives like IFV, surrogacy and even adoption," an insider revealed. "In the end, Beyoncé thinks it will happen and she will soon have another little baby to love."
"Beyoncé is actually jealous that Kim got pregnant and she hasn't," the insider added. "She's happy for Kim but also a little envious."
With that being said, the "Drunk in Love" duo has supposedly enlisted the help of a surrogate for their second child.
The source told In Touch, via Hollywood Life, that the couple is "in the process of having a baby through a surrogate."
"They were trying for several months, but Beyoncé was having trouble," a source said. "She was scared about another high-risk pregnancy, so surrogacy became the best decision for them."
The source also claimed that Beyoncé and Jay Z have finally found a woman to give birth to their baby.
"They didn't want to take any more risks, so after all the ironclad legal documents were drawn up, it took them about two months to find the perfect woman to carry their child," the source added. "The surrogate is still in the early stages of the pregnancy so they have yet to announce it to the public."
