Beyonce Pregnancy A Hoax?

Rumors are swirling online that Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby, born Saturday at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, was actually born to a surrogate. The star debuted her baby bump on Aug. 28 at the MTV Video Music Awards, setting a Twitter record around the announcement. At the time, Beyonce was about three months along -- the standard time when pregnant couples announce a little one is on the way. Since then, Beyonce was unlike most expectant moms, shunning comfortable flats and loose clothes for sky-high platforms and figure-hugging outfits. But in October, footage of a TV interview in Australia led to speculation that the diva was wearing a prosthetic. Either way, Blue Ivy Carter was born on Jan. 7 at a healthy 7 pounds.
