Beyonce's devoted Bey Hive are absolutely CONVINCED that The Lion King star is pregnant with her fourth baby, saying that she's been 'dropping hints' all over Instagram.

The rumour mill was churning after the 37-year-old singer and actress posted a group of images to her followers, following a purple theme.

Queen Bey is currently on her holibops with Blue Ivy, twins Rumi and Sir and her rapper husband, Jay-Z.

The latest group of Instagram pictures has sent fans into a frenzy as the Destiny's Child star was posing with her arms crossed and a purple crocodile skin bag covering her stomach.

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out that the post could be to hide a baby bump. One commented: “Anyone else see a bump or is it only me?”.

Another fan said: “Let me research the meanings of purple and the things it’s related to. This is a clue!”. The Bey Hive love a good puzzle, clearly.

Some fans quickly rubbished the claims, saying the mum-of-three's body could simply have changed;

"This woman had three whole babies, three y’all, and she is 37-years-old …You really think the only possible way she could have a belly pouch is by being pregnant?!". Fair point.

Beyonce was recently spotted wearing a bracelet she debuted while pregnant with her first child.

The Crazy in Love singer rocked the same Lorraine Schwartz cuff she wore on the night she revealed she was expecting daughter Blue Ivy in 2011, which has increased baby mania speculation.

In other Bey Hive news, reports have been swirling that Destiny's Child are reuniting to record new music and head on a 2020 tour.

If Beyonce is pregnant, this could throw those plans into disarray. Do we want a Carter Baby #4 or Destiny's Child on tour? It's like Sophie's Choice…

Beyoncé laments her weight gain after giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir in a new video titled 22 Days, proving she's just like us in so many ways.

The clip shows Queen Bey following a strict organic, vegan, non-GMO diet and working out endlessly to get back into shape in time for her ground-breaking Coachella tour last year.

The 37-year-old had just given birth to her baby twins at the beginning of the video, and it begins with the superstar singer stepping onto the weighing scales and saying; 

"Good morning, it’s 5am, and this is day one of rehearsals for Coachella."

The weighing scales show that her weight is 175lbs (roughly 79kg) and she proclaims; "Every woman’s nightmare. Long way to go."

Her 22 Days nutrition programme was set up by her friend and personal trainer, Marco Borges.

"I’m back on the stage after giving birth to twins. I was a woman that felt like my body was not mine," the Spirit singer admits in the candid clip. 

"Me getting the weight off was so much easier than getting my body back in shape and feeling comfortable."

The video also gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at Beyoncé in intense Coachell rehearsals, food-repping and working out ahead of her headline set, which became a Netflix film in a multi-million deal.

Queen Bey claims she has a "special bond" with daughter Blue Ivy, and has been honest with her followers about her post-pregnancy weight loss journey in the past.

In her Netflix documentary Homecoming, she shares:

"I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol – and I’m hungry." The star has just released her Lion King album, The Gift.

The former Destiny's Child band-member admitted that she worried her body following Rumi and Sir's birth would affect her performance;

"There were days when I thought I would never be the same I’d never be the same physically, my strength and endurance would never be the same.

"And you know, a lot of the choreography is about feeling so it’s not as technical, it’s your own personality that brings it to life."

She continues: "And that’s hard when you don’t feel like yourself. I had to rebuild my body. It took me a while to feel confident to give my own personality."

 Queen Bey has unveiled the music video for Spirit, which features in Disney's live-action remake of The Lion King, and boy is it powerful.

The actress and singer lends her voice to the character of Nala in the movie, directed by Jon Favreau and featuring talents like Donald Glover, John Oliver, Seth Rogan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, JD McCrary and James Earl Jones.

Beyoncé told ABC News's Robin Roberts that the video's concept is “to show how God is the painter and natural beauty in nature needs no art direction."

She added; “It’s the beauty of colour, the beauty of melanin, the beauty of tradition.”

Clips from The Lion King are interspersed within the video, which sees the icon sitting in the desert wearing an array of colourful gowns.

Her seven-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, also makes a cameo in Spirit, looking every inch the image of her stunning mum.

Spirit is just one song off Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift album, which accompanies the film. Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell Williams also add their talents to The Gift.

Mood 4 Eva contains the vocal talents of hip-hop legend Jay-Z while Brown Skin Girl sees Blue Ivy add her voice.

Beyoncé described the soundtrack as a “love letter to Africa, adding: “And I wanted to make sure we found the best talent from Africa, and not just use some of the sounds and did my interpretation of it."

Beyonce confirmed that drums will be used heavily on the work, as well as “incredible new sounds mixed with some of the producers from America”.

The Lion King: The Gift will be released on July 19, alongside the film landing in cinemas. Watch the awe-inspiring video for Spirit below, and try not to gasp at every outfit change like we did;

We honestly never thought this moment would ever arrive, but fate has aligned the stars.

PRINCESS Meghan Markle and QUEEN Beyoncé met at the UK premiere of The Lion King last night, and everyone's hearts stopped from witnessing sheer excellence.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a rare public appearance at the premiere, looking like movie stars themselves. Such greatness, much power.

The new parents walked hand-in-hand down Leicester Square's red carpet, greeting fans and smiling for pictures before meeting the legendary Queen Bey and her husband Jay-Z.

The iconic entertainer voiced Nala in the Disney live-action movie, calling Meghan ‘my princess’ when they embraced. Jesus take the wheel, we've vacated the earth.

Apparently, the two couples exchanged talk over life with newborn babies, which is just adorable. They're real people too, see? 

Many of us will remember the Brit Awards acceptance video for Best International Group, in which Jay-Z and Beyoncé created in the Louvre with Meghan Markle as the Mona Lisa.

"In honour of Black History Month, we bow down to one of our Melanated Monas," the Instagram caption read. "Congrats on your pregnancy! We wish you so much joy."

It's unclear whether the pair have met the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before, but they greeted each other like old pals.

"The baby, so beautiful," Beyoncé praised, about Harry and Meghan's newborn Archie. "We love you guys." 

Prince Harry also asked about Rumi and Sir, The Carters' two-years-old twins;

"They are not here. They don’t come on every trip. We left them at home. They would loved to have been here," Beyoncé replied.

Jay Z then apparently offered the royal couple a parenting recommendation, saying; "The best advice I can give you, always find time for yourself," he said.

What a surreal meeting between two powerhouse couples, busy inspiring the entire world with their talents. What we would have done to have bagged a seat at that premiere…

Disney's live-action The Little Mermaid has finally cast it's Ariel, and it's the perfect choice. 

Halle Bailey, of Chloe x Halle fame, is set to become part of Disney's world, isn't it neat? The R&B singer is tapped to play Ariel in the next adaptation, directed by Rob Marshall.

The director has spent months meeting with talent, and insiders claim that Bailey has been a clear front runner from day one of auditions.

Disney have received praise online for casting more diverse actors and artists for their new cinematic offerings, with Bailey becoming the first black princess in a live-action film.

“After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance — plus a glorious singing voice — all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role,” Marshall said in a statement.

The incredible cast already includes Jacob Tremblay and the hilarious Awkwafina, of Crazy Rich Asians and Oceans 8 fame. Melissa McCarthy is also rumoured to be playing the sea-witch Ursula.

The Little Mermaid will incorporate original songs from the 1989 animated hit film, as well as adding new song from original composer Alan Menken and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

Miranda is producing the film along with Marshall, Marc Platt and John DeLuca, so it's set to be absolutely amazing. David Magee has written the script, with Jane Goldman having written a previous draft.

Menken wrote the iconic original music from the film, including songs like Under the Sea, Kiss the Girl and Part of Your World. Our childhoods are essentially being reignited and we couldn't be happier.

The movie followed mermaid Ariel's journey after falling in love with Prince Eric, a human. She trades in her voice for a pair of legs, and it gets fairly chaotic after that…

The role will be Bailey's debut for a feature film, following her success as one part of singing duo Chloe x Halle since 2015.

The pair rose to fame after posting YouTube covers of Beyoncé before the superstar discovered them and signed them to her record label. They've since opened for Queen Bey on her Lemonade tour.

Halle also stars in the Freeform series ​​​​​​Grown-ish, so she's got some acting skills in the bag already.

The soundtrack from The Lion King is bulletproof, let's get that straight.

It's untouchable, and anyone who messes with it risks getting bombarded by fans until the end of time.

The opening notes of Circle of Life live on in our childhood memories forever, and most of us have probably lifted our cats/dogs/baby siblings up in the air dramatically at the end.

Now, we thought we could handle tricky situations seeing as we're grown adults. We thought wrong. News that the live-action version of The Lion King has cut one of the best songs has hit us so damn hard.

The highly-anticipated Jon Favreau movie features CGI animated photorealistic animals, but one of the most iconic characters will lose their song.

Be Prepared is one of the best tunes out of the entire movie, and is Scar's villain flex move. Unfortunately his bad guy manifesto will be cut, and we are shaken to our very core. 

None of us realised how obsessed we are with the song until it was ripped away from our clutching hands, but now we're seriously worried about Scar's character development.

Be Prepared shows his mighty hyena army with green volcano explosions every now and again (EVERY Disney villain has green eyes), and shows the uncle's duplicity.

His teeth, ambitions and delusions of power are shown to the audience, and Elton John wrote it for God's Sake. That alone is reason for it to stay in the film.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Scar the lion (@lion_king_fans101) on

The song is a tongue-twister of insanity, which sums up Scar's intentions to murder his own brother Mufasa and take the crown for himself on Pride Rock.

Chiwetel Ejiofor is voicing the new Scar, and we'd have paid big bucks to have heard him sing Be Prepared. Remember how amazing Jeremy Irons' voice is before Jim Cummings takes over for the singing job? 

“Prepare for the coup of the century,” he says. “Be prepared for the murkiest scam. Meticulous planning, tenacity spanning, decades of denial, is simply why I’ll be king undisputed, respected, saluted and seen for the wonder I am!”

The film itself is actually based on Shakespeare's King Lear, and the villains in these tales are always hugely important. Why Disney, would you cut such a scorcher of a song? We're considering a large-scale protest. 

Disney are also re-making Mulan in live-action form, WITH NO MUSIC.

Yes, you read that right. We have serious questions about their intentions with our prized childhood cinematic gems. If there's no I'll Make A Man Out Of You, you ain't getting our money.

Brand new posters for Disney's live-action The Lion King have been released, building the anticipation even further for the film's release in just 49 days.

The images depict all of the beloved main characters with credits to their voice actors, and we can't contain our excitement.

Young Simba and young Nala, played by JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph are looking especially adorable, not to mention Billy Eichner as the iconic comedic character Timon.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter was noticeably absent from The Lion King official trailers, so we're especially happy to get a closer look of what Nala looks like.

The 37-year-old singer stars alongside Donald Glover, who plays the lead role of Simba, and recorded a duet of Can You Feel The Love Tonight? with the musical actor.

During an appearance on Crooked Media's Keep It podcast, Billy Eichner teased Beyoncé's performance, saying:

"She’s definitely in the movie because I’ve seen a rough cut. And I’ve heard her sing Can You Feel the Love Tonight? with Donald Glover and I’m telling you, it’s f**cking good."

The new film uses cutting-edge technology to create the live-action characters, which look incredibly life-like. 

The highly-anticipated movie is directed by Jon Favreau with a script from Jeff Nathanson, who previously wrote Catch Me If You Can starring Leonardo DiCaprio for Steven Spielberg. 

Opening in cinemas on July 19, the cast is also led by James Earl Jones as the original Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogan voicing Pumpaa and John Oliver as Zazu.

The original 1994 animated film was a box office smash, with an initial worldwide gross of 766 million dollars.

Those 50 days of waiting can't go by quick enough. The countdown for The Circle of Life is ON.

We've heard some crazy conspiracy theories in our day (Fake Paul McCartney, Cloned Avril Lavigne etc), but this one takes the cake.

A new claim which has been circulating online is suggesting that Beyoncé Knowles gave birth to Solange as a teenager, and is actually 45-years-old.

This would mean that the iconic singer was pregnant at roughly age 12 or 13, and the baby was raised by her parents as her sister. It also means that Queen Bey is seven years older than she claims to be.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Solange Knowles (@solangeknowles___) on

The strange theory implies that Bey has rolled back the time on her age, and was born in 1974 instead of 1981. Solange is 32-years-old, and was born in 1986, so is five years younger than her world-famous older sis.

Beyoncé's given date of birth is September 4, 1981, meaning she would have been too young to have given birth to Solange. An online post was started by someone who claims to have worked at Bey's Columbia record label for four years.

The age-change rumours also assert that Beyoncé's cousin confirmed the Solange claim. The (insane) post stated: "Beyonce's precise birthdate is 9/4/1974.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@suga4bey) on

"I saw a picture of her driver's licence that was on my manager's computer once don't ask how." (Oh, we're definitely asking how…) "Beyonce and Solange are both teenaged mothers, I do not know the paternity of Solange."

The post continues, writing: "I have heard many crazy things while working at Columbia for four years. The Beyonce stuff a close relative of hers told me so I am more prone to believe that.

"Bey's cousin told me Beyonce's daughter is Solange and she said it to me in confidence after the topic of teenage pregnancies came up. She is not the sarcastic type either so I doubt she would make something up that is so scandalous about her own cousin."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@queenbeyfanx) on

"If the story was true, it would make Beyonce a grandmother as Solange gave birth to a son, Daniel, when she was 18."

Actress Gabrielle Union claimed that herself and Beyonce have been friends "since we were teenagers", but Union is 46-years-old. If she was truly nine years older than Bey, they never would have been teens at the same time.

This comment has been one of the reasons why rumours were sparked, but we're not buying it. The lack of evidence is pretty ridiculous, but we can't help but be entertained by the theory. What do you gals think?

The Beyhive is buzzing, to say the least.

Taylor Swift opened the Billboard Music Awards last night with her new single, ME!. It was a colourful occasion, with Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco by her side.

There were rainbows, umbrella dancing, butterflies, hearts and general good vibes all round, but once aspect of her performance was noticed in particular: the marching band.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@georgialovestaylor) on

Taylor began the performance with a drumline, which SOME fans online are comparing to Beyoncé's iconic Homecoming show at Coachella.

Part of the Beyhive are throwing some major shade online right now;

"TAYLOR SWIFT JUST BIT TF OUTTA BEYONCÉ" is a fairly extreme example, but others are saying that Taylor may have added the drumline on purpose to …drum…up some tasty drama and get everyone talking about her new song. 

She is a marketing genius after all, let's not forget the entire Reputation build-up. Girl's got game.

One fan even called it 'gentrification':

Others are defending Swift's choice to include a marching band, pointing out that Beyoncé was not the first and won't be the last performer to include one;

"Madonna did the marching band first." The marching band on stage was actually first seen back in 1907, so, you know…not at Coachella last year…

Though, timing is everything. Taylor may have known that this would cause some smoke to breathe into the industry's air if she added the band TWO WEEKS after Homecoming hit Netflix.  *strokes beard*

We have to wonder: WWBS? (What would Beyoncé say?)

Others are pointing out that TayTay gets served a LOT of sh*t in the media, and that nothing good ever comes from comparing two powerful, successful women with VERY different musical styles.

Try telling the Beyhive that….we're still reading the Tweets though aren't we? They're gas.

*Sighs*
Beyoncé's Homecoming changed pop culture forever and ever Amen, so it's no wonder people can't seem to stop talking about it.

We're sure Taylor is doing her best to ignore the internet furore, or maybe she's delighted that her performance is now trending on Twitter?

Like we said; She's a genius.

Beyoncé is a powerhouse of a woman – singer, producer, performer, business maven, and mum.

And now the 37-year-old has revealed in her Netflix documentary, Homecoming, that she battled pre-eclampsia during her second pregnancy.

The movie does focus on her 2018 Coachella performance but she also touched upon her role as a mother to her three kids. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

The singer is mum to seven-year-old Bue Ivy and one-year-old twins Rumour and Sir.

She got candid about suffering from pre-eclampsia when she was pregnant with the twins. 

She revealed how it took its toll on her saying, ''My body went through more than I knew it could.''

She weighed 218 pounds at the time of their birth and had a tough pregnancy, and this is when she developed high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

So what is it?

It is characterized by high blood pressure and is a leading cause of maternal death.

It is not preventable and symptoms of pre-eclampsia include severe headaches, abdominal pain, and changes in blood pressure. 

Beyoncé got honest about the fact that one of the twins' heartbeats stopped beating in the womb, so she had to have an emergency C-section.

She spoke before about suffering from the condition. 

She wrote in an essay for Vogue that she was "swollen with toxemia.''

She said, ''My health and my babies' health were in danger, so I had an emergency C-section. We spent many weeks in the NICU…My husband was a soldier and such a strong support system for me."

We applaud her for being so honest about the condition and opening up the conversation for other women who have been through the same thing.

You're about to have serious FOMO, that's for sure. Why? Jay-Z and Beyoncé's annual Oscars after-party, that's why. Unforch, social media was banned at the bash so there ain't many public photos.

The bash is as exclusive and private as you may imagine, with stars such as Adele, Rihanna, Drake, Spike Lee, Adam Driver, Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Evans and Natalie Portman showing their faces.

Newly engaged Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry arrived as an item, as well as power couupe J-Lo and Alex Rodriguez and social media legends Chrissy Teigen and her husband John.

According to an insider at E! News; "The party was completely A-list. Guests began arriving around midnight and they didn't leave until about 5 a.m. and later. It was the party everyone wanted to be at it seems." 

No surprises there. Tell us more about Katy and Orlando, that's what we want to know;

"Katy and Orlando were the life of the party. Everyone was approaching them to say congrats and they were both 'cheers'-ing their drinks with anyone and everyone," the source shared.

"Katy looked amazing in a silver gown and Orlando was by her side the entire night. Jay-Z and Beyoncé seemed happy to see them and the four of them were talking for several moments."

 "The music was mainly hip-hop songs mixed with classics like Beyoncé's top hits, Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande," the source shared.  YAS to Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored and 7 RIngs blaring. Armand de Brignac Brut Gold Champagne was apparently flowing too.

 "Everyone was on the dance floor dancing having a great time." Jamie Foxx was spotted getting the crowd hyped when he yelled the lyrics of rap songs in the background, and Kelly Rowland caught up with Queen Bey.

Beyoncé and her Destiny's Child sister hit the dance floor together and were having a great time. "They both were drinking and smiling. Beyoncé seemed relaxed like she felt she could let loose for a night."

Of course, we CANNOT forget about Bad Gal RiRi, the woman who can upstage literally anyone's outfit.

Rihanna showed up looking stunning in a leopard mini-dress, and had to be in the same room as Drake which must have been hella awkward. She probably curved so many former romantic prospects.

Us Weekly, wrote that the soirée went down at the Chateau Marmont garage, where guests were reportedly told to honour a no-phone policy. Daniel Humm and Eleven Madison Park did the lush catering.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Diddy, Serena Williams, Regina King, Michael B Jordan, Tiffany Haddish, Aziz Ansari, Oscar winner Olivia Colman and every other A-lister you can name were also there. Imagine being in that room…

RiRi left the party in slippers, because of course she did. A whole mood. In conclusion, everyone wanted to be there and no photos of Beyoncé's outfit have appeared, but you can bet your bottom dollar she stole the show.
