Beyonce is reportedly in talks of playing Glinda for NBC’s “The Whiz Live.” Rumors have it that The Queen Bey is hesitant to take on the role because she is pregnant and does not want her much-awaited pregnancy be compromised.
Beyonce to star as Glinda for NBC’s The Wiz Live
Beyonce is pregnant with second child
Both reports from US Weekly and E! could not confirm whether the Queen Bey has already said yes to the role. Is this because she is reportedly pregnant with her second child with Jay Z?
Beyonce has reportedly undergone numerous IVF treatments to make this second pregnancy a success, a source is telling. The couple is just waiting out until the three-month mark before making the pregnancy announcement, the source said.
“Even though he’s barely showing, she’s paranoid that someone will pick up on it, so she’s hiding her stomach whenever she goes out,” the source was quoted as saying by the Hollywood Life, citing this week’s edition of OK Magazine.
“They’ve gone through so much to get here that they don’t want to jinx it by telling everyone before the three-month mark,” the source said. “They’ve been trying for a while, and it was so hard when it wasn’t happening. they both desperately wanted another child and feel so lucky. But they definitely won’t tell everyone with just a statement — that’s not their vibe.”
