After Beyoncé sparked pregnancy rumors with a picture of a sand-made baby bump on Instagram, ‘In Touch’ has learned she and husband Jay Z are expecting baby No. 2 — and it’s a boy!
“They’re both elated,” an insider tells ‘In Touch.’ And while both parents are excited about the 33-year-old’s bun in the oven, the insider says it has especially affected the expectant father, 45.
“There’s no question that he adores Blue, but he’s felt an emptiness not having a little boy. When they found out the good news, it was like new life was injected into their marriage — Jay is 150-percent invested now.”
Before giving birth to three-year-old Blue, Bey suffered from several miscarriages and was candid about their struggle to conceive. Worried they’d experience the same heartbreak, the couple have been motivated by the pregnancy to change their lives for the better.
Jay has cut back on his partying and his work commitments, so his primary focus can stay on his family.
The insider says, “He even revamped his diet — he jokes that he wants to be in shape so he can do dude things with his little boy, like shooting hoops.”
And the pregnancy could not have come at a better time for Beyoncé.
“She had almost given up hope that she’d be able to give Jay the son he’s always wanted,” the insider tells the mag. “But now she’s telling her closest friends and family members that 2015 is their fresh start.”
