Although it has yet to be confirmed, sources close to the famous musical couple tells E! that Beyonce is pregnant with baby number two! Our hearts leapt into our mouths as we let out an ecstatic “Hooray!” for the R&B songbird and her equally talented husband Jay-Z. Bey has been showing signs of being pregnant for the past few weeks, and it sounds like she may no longer be able to hide the big news!
After the birth of their daughter Blue Ivy in January, we couldn’t believe how many theories circulated about Blue’s unique name. Some speculated that Beyonce’s blog post explained the first portion of Blue’s name, and that ‘Ivy’ referenced the Roman numeral ("IV") for 4 — a significant digit for both Beyonce and Jay-Z since Beyonce's birthday is September 4, Jay-Z's is December 4, they were married on 4/4/2008, and Beyonce’s latest album released before Blue’s birth was entitled 4.
This time around, the speculation about what the (potential) new bun in the oven might be named is starting early! So here we submit our choices for potential monikers for beybey #2:
Sasha – Oh, we totally went for it. This one circulated during Beyonce’s first pregnancy as an obvious choice to name her daughter after her just-as-famous alter ego Sasha Fierce. However, since it’s so predictable, we definitely think it’ll be a hard pass for the creative parents.
Giselle – Bey’s middle name might make an appearance the second time around as many moms and dads choose to keep their second name in the family.
Destiny – Obviously paying homage to the girl group in which Beyonce first wowed us with her singing talents and incredibly sexy stage moves.
Glory – We’re not sure if Bey and Jay would want to steal the glory from her father’s sweet song about his first child, but hey, you never know!
Queen – Beyonce may take a hint from the name of her popular blog, The BeyHive, and give her daughter the regal name fit for Hollywood royalty.
Corey – Again, the couple may choose to name their first son after Jay-Z’s middle name, although it’s a long shot.
Billy – Hey, throw us a bone, here! We tried to come up with a name that included the Roman numeral “II” to signify the couple’s second baby and play off of Beyonce’s first track “1 + 1” from her album 4. You do better!
Wyatt – Maybe they’d be into working backwards from Jay-Z’s name, spinning their new baby boy’s name from the second-to-last letter in the alphabet.
Star – We feel like this name is definitely unisex and would hold great meaning from papa Z’s track from The Blueprint 3, “A Star is Born.” Get it?
Fatum - A bit more of a masculine name, meaning “Destiny” in Latin.
Alright, so we’re clearly rooting for a younger sister for Blue Ivy, but we think a baby boy would give great balance to this happy family, too. What do you hope the newest addition to the Carter clan will be? Sound off below!
