Pregnancy rumors surfaced after the Drunk In Love singer posted a photograph Sunday on Instagram of herself lying on an Asian beach covered in sand. The sand is shaped in such a way that suggests she is sporting a rather large baby bump under the sand.
This latest pregnancy clue ties into other rumors that have surrounded the 33-year-old singer and her Empire State of Mind husband over the past few weeks, even months.
A source for RadarOnline said the doting husband's behavior has changed recently, becoming even more protective than usual.
''For the last month, Jay has been fiercely protective of her, just like when she was expecting Blue Ivy.
''He's been doing everything he can to ensure that Bey is in a stress-free bubble.''
It wouldn't be surprising, really, if the superstar is pregnant. She has said she wants to have a sibling for her little girl.
''[Motherhood] gives you purpose. I realized why I was born and, more than anything, all of the things I want to pass onto my child and the best way of doing that is not by preaching or telling her but showing her by example,'' she told RadarOnline.
