Solange took to her Twitter on New Year's Day to comment on the way her pregnant sister looked, "Shout out to my sister for being the cutest pregnant woman ever!"
People magazine reported that a source close to the singer confirmed Beyonce's pregnancy as well and said, "She was definitely a pregnant lady that night (New Year's Eve). They sat side by side and had a cozy and intimate dinner. They seemed to be having a lovely time."
According to Contactmusic.com the baby's name will be Tiana May Carter, and will most likely be born in St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, which is a private hospital near their New York City apartment.
Radar Online has reported that St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital has been alerted of a "celebrity VIP" patient, so as to ready preparations for the individual that will be giving birth there shortly.MediaTakeOut.com said the hospital's Labor and Delivery Suite was reserved by a "high profile party" with the birth possibly happening any day now. They reportedly rented out the whole floor, according to MTV U.K.
Billboard.com saw Beyonce and Jay-Z in Brooklyn on New Year's Eve having dinner. On Sunday night Beyonce told an Australian television show her due date was in February.
In an interview back in November, Beyonce expressed her concerns with the difficulties of trying to keep her pregnancy a secret as her and her husband Jay-Z like to be private.
"The whole time I definitely was thinking, 'Everyone knows, everyone can see,'" the singer told to The Associated Press, before the screening of her new concert DVD.
She goes on to talk about how difficult it was to perform as her body was changing, and she was performing every night. "When you're pregnant, it's a little bit harder to breathe, so it was hard doing all the choreography and singing at the same time," she said.
