Beyonce Knowles and husband Sean "Jay-Z" Carter are reportedly ready to have a second child, just three months after the birth of their first child, baby Blue Ivy.
"They see no reason to wait. It took them a while to conceive Blue Ivy, so they don't want to waste another second," a source told Star Magazine.
"Beyonce and Jay-Z adore being parents, and they're as hands-on as they possibly can be. Beyonce has found a passion other than music, and it's being a mom," the source added.
The couple recently took a family vacation in St. Barts where they reportedly discussed having another child.
The "Single Ladies" singer spoke about the joys of motherhood and how giving birth to Blue Ivy has changed her life.
"Nothing can describe the feeling. You have the instant connection once you know your child is growing inside you, but when you hold it for the first time, the words can't be found," Beyonce gushed to Star UK.
"It's an old cliché that the thing expectant moms look forward to the most is holding their child in their arms for the first time, but it's one of those clichés that is a real truth," she added.
The 30-year-old re-ignited speculation that she may have used a surrogate to deliver Blue Ivy after displaying a slimmer physique just 10 weeks after she was reported to have given birth.
Beyonce, who attended a fundraiser hosted by Michelle Obama last month, stepped out in a figure-hugging navy blue Victoria Beckham dress which left some critics questioning her weight loss.
"Beyonce has said giving birth and dropping the baby weight was far easier than she thought," the source said.
Although the "Love On Top" singer claims to have had a natural birth, fans first began questioning Beyonce's pregnancy when she sported what appeared to be a fluctuating baby bump during a 2011 interview with Australian journalist Molly Meldrum.
A video of the interview shows an evidently pregnant Beyoncé preparing to sit in her seat, and as she does her baby bump appears to deflate but despite the speculation the singer denies faking her pregnancy.
"A child is the greatest gift you can receive, and we are so excited and blessed to be in this situation. I am so excited! From the time I knew I was pregnant we have been parents," Beyonce said.
