Beyoncé and Jay-Z are currently in the UK on their highly hyped joint tour, On The Run II.
While we’ve all heard raucous rock’n’roll stories of what musicians get up to while they’re touring, it’s not often a husband and wife tour together.
Some fans, however, think they may have spotted what Jay and Bey have been up to though, as eagle-eyed fans at the recent concerts think they’ve seen a growing baby bump (on Beyoncé, not Jay).
Fans took to social media to speculate about the couple’s pregnancy, which would be their fourth child after 6-year-old daughter Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir Carter, who are about to turn one.
Fuelling the baby rumours were Beyoncé’s wardrobe choices during her performances, as fans noticed the singer wearing a number of long coats, which could be designed to hide the bump.
One fan wrote:
Beyonce looks pregnant again. Y’all know they love 4’s and she has all those coats for the tour.

While another praised the singer:
Beyoncé doing a worldwide tour whilst she’s pregnant has got to be the biggest motivation in the world

One fan even managed to capture a candid shot from the recent tour:
The UK portion of the tour kicked off in Cardiff at Principality Stadium on June 6, followed by Hampden Park in Glasgow on June 9, and a show in Manchester at the Etihad Stadium on June 13.
They round off their UK visit with a show at the London Stadium on June 15.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s last joint tour, On The Run, was back in 2014, however they didn’t visit the UK, which is why the new tour is a big deal for fans of both artists.
The UK dates will kickstart the On The Run II tour, where they’ll play across 15 different cities across the UK and Europe.
Afterwards, they’ll be starting their 21-date North American tour on July 25.
Fans who missed out on tickets this time around, may get a chance to see Beyoncé on the big screen once more, as rumours are circulating, surrounding the possibility of a fourth Austin Powers movie.
Check out Beyoncé playing Foxxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers in Goldmember:
Speaking about the possibility, Myers told ET:
I can’t say. But it’s, you know, maybe. It’s a very strong maybe. We’ll see.
I would love to do a movie from Dr. Evil’s perspective. So it would be Dr. Evil 1, Austin Powers 4, is how I would roll.
Start the campaign, please. Thank you.
While he’s stated he ‘would love to’ return to the role of the International Man of Mystery, part of the reason as to why Myers has been away from our screens for an extended period is because in the last six years, he’s had three kids and it’s where his ‘main focus has been’.
