Beyoncé and Jay-Z are expecting a baby girl, says the singer's former Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland. The singer accidentally revealed the gender of the child when chatting with Us Weekly at the Cosmopolitan Awards in London on Thursday night. When asked what she was planning to get the baby for the R&B queen's baby shower, Rowland replied  "I don't know...I think her dad is gonna give her everything anyways, all I can give her is love."

Rowland also spilled the beans in an interview with MissInfo.tv. "I'm so happy for my sister and her husband. They're so happy in this moment right now, as they should be. They've made a little bundle of love, I'm so excited for them," she said. "I have no idea what I'm going to buy Beyoncé at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible. She won't be spoiled but she will be very well looked-after."

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have not officially confirmed the gender of their child, who is expected to be born sometime in February.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
