Beyonce is pregnant with her first child, according to a report by Us Weekly. The 29-year-old singer and husband Jay-Z have yet to make an official announcement, but Us reports that Beyonce is in her first trimester.

"B was shocked. She loves kids, but she wasn't ready to be a mother just yet," says a source close to the singer. Despite the surprise, another source says that Beyonce sees the pregnancy as "a gift from God and she's so happy."
