Bey opened up to Katie about her new bundle of joy, read below:

On the Rumors Surrounding her Baby Bump

“There are certain things that are so far [out] that it doesn’t even upset you. My mother, she’s like, ‘Nobody’s talking about my grandbaby! My grandbaby’s not even here yet!’ I’m like, ‘Calm down, mom. It’s okay. It’s really silly.’ ‘I don’t like it!’ So my mom is really protective and so is my sister, but I’m cool. It’s so ridiculous and over the top.”

On Her Baby Announcement

“News that’s that big, it’s hard to hide and keep to yourself. I felt so liberated and I felt *sigh* I can breathe and be happy. You know, it was a beautiful feeling. I went straight off the stage and just cried. I hugged my mom, I hugged Jay and just cried.”

On if she’ll be taking time off and crazy Pregnancy Cravings

I’ll be taking time off and getting in shape. I’m not looking forward to that because I’ve been having a good time. I read that I like ketchup on everything. I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, ‘I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.’ I’m like, ‘That is disgusting! What are you doing?’ And he’s like, ‘I read it on the internet!’”
