Look, I’m not gonna go ahead and say without a doubt that Beyonce was faking her pregnancy. But like Koa Beck at Mommyish, I think it’s possible she could have used a surrogate. Babble’s deputy editor Mira Jacob says there’s no way Beyonce’s bump was a fraud, but I’m not so sure. Aside from the fact that it’s rumored Beyonce has already signed on to perform at the Grammys in a month, here’s why I think it’s at least a tiny bit plausible that B.K. was working a fake belly all this time:
No one dances in heels like this at 5 months pregnant. 1 of 6Beyonce was allegedly 5 months pregnant when her Roseland concerts were taped in August. I've seen small pregnant bellies, so that part doesn't weird me out, but I can't imagine risking a fall by dancing like this. (You'll get the point after less than a minute.)
And I'm not saying that out of jealousy or spite. I was on stage til 2 days before I was due, but I can't imagine doing the "Single Ladies" choreo in stilettos with a baby on board. Celebs do fall on stage, all the time! Ask J. Lo and Lady Gaga...

In this video, Beyonce seems legitimately angry about the accusation… 2 of 6...which to me only strengthens the accusation. I don't know, if someone said I wasn't pregnant and I was, I would just grab their hand and put it on my stomach until they felt the baby kick. There's just something about the way she reacts in this video, it doesn't sit right with me.
Then again, maybe it's just super annoying to deal with rumors all the time as a celeb and so she's just genuinely frustrated. But there's something about the way she rubs her belly so quickly - it's weird.
Her original due date was February, then December… 3 of 6
And speaking of that folding bump… 4 of 6When Australian show Sunday Night tried to put the bump folding issue to bed by showing B sitting from different camera angles, their best shot was blocked by a makeup artist! Hrmph.
Several sources reported that Beyonce scheduled a C-section… 5 of 6...but the singer says she gave birth naturally - and that it was "peaceful." Peaceful?! I guess that's one way to describe pushing a 7 pound baby out of your precious vagina. Or maybe it was peaceful because she was sitting comfortably watching a surrogate give birth to her daughter?

The security level at the hospital… 6 of 6As my friend Yamaneika Saunders put it, "They seal the delivery room up tighter than my vagina at the age of 14, but he is comfortable rapping that Beyonce had a miscarriage and they conceived the baby in Paris?!" It just doesn't make sense. Sure, they wanted privacy. Yes, they could have had the baby at home. But it's easier to sneak a surrogate into the hospital undetected than it would be to sneak a surrogate into their house, right?!
