According to People, the singer's mother, Tina Knowles, was even more disturbed by rumors that the singer and her husband Jay-Z hired a surrogate for the pregnancy. "I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months," she said. "As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous."
Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed their first daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, on January 7th. The R&B star isn't taking much time off from her career – she is already booked to perform a string of shows this Memorial Day weekend at the new Revel Resorts in Atlantic City.
