E! News got the rap mogul to stand still long enough to put the question to him point blank. And he stood there and answered point blank—after a bit of dancing around. The event was the release of the popular EA video game NBA 2K13 and the locale was Jay-Z’s home turf, the 40/40 club in Manhattan. By the way, he looked somewhat annoyed by the questions, didn’t he?
“Tonight? No,” he said, when asked if he was having another baby.
“Absolutely not,” he said, when asked if he would have another baby in nine months.
And just to make sure that he wasn’t being coy, E! News covered its bases and asked if he and Beyonce would be expecting a baby before then.
“No. Not in one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight or nine months,” he said.
Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles also told “Access Hollywood,” “It’s gonna happen when it’s time, but not right now.”
And when asked if she wanted more grandchildren, she said, “of course I do! I harass her all the time.”
As grandma Tina acknowledges, it’s going to happen at some point—just not right now. Back in May, Beyonce told “Entertainment Tonight” that she “definitely” wants more kids.
“I don’t know how many,” she said. “God knows, I don’t know yet.”
And as we reported on ABS, when the next baby does come, it surely will be outfitted stylishly, if Blue Ivy is any judge. Designer Ruthie Davis has created $800 sneakers for Blue Ivy, even though the eight-month-old can’t even walk yet.
“Take a look at the Baby Ruthie’s I made especially for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy… SO Sweet, right?” read a messaged posted on Ruthie Davis’ Facebook page alongside a photo of the adorable shoes.
But the Blue Ivy shoes may actually be a bargain. Apparently, Davis’ line of bedazzled Pierce sneakers generally retail in the U.S. for around $1,898.
