A very pregnant Beyoncé was photographed for the first time since rumors spread that she was giving birth.
Beyoncé was photographed being escorted from a New York City office building, dressed in skinny jeans, a black coat and a huge patterned scarf. The 30-year-old mama-to-be held her tummy and smiled as photographers snapped photos of her walking to a chauffeured car.

Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z were seen by witnesses on New Year's Eve dining at Buttermilk Channel in Brooklyn. The star looked very pregnant and beautiful that night. She looked amazing. She wore sky-high heels. It was really impressive for an enormously pregnant woman, a source told People magazine.
Her young sister, Solange, confirmed that the Halo singer was still pregnant, tweeting, Shout out to my sister for being THE cutest pregnant woman ever!
Hearsay continues, but Beyoncé is still pregnant. There has been no word from the star's camp. Since she and Jay-Z have always been a private couple, it is unlikely that there will be much hoopla for the media surrounding the birth.

Rumors swirled that the 30-year-old was actually using a surrogate in order to stay in shape for an upcoming tour.
