Is Beyoncé about to give birth? Star's mum and sister shop in New York as hospital 'prepares labour suite for VIP'

By Sarah Fitzmaurice

Low profile: The singer was last seen shopping in New York earlier this month and is thought to be nine months pregnant

She concealed her pregnancy for months before revealing her baby bump at the MTV Music Awards in August.

But now Beyoncé is said to be moments away from giving birth to her first child.

And the appearance of the star's mother Tina, 57, sister Solange, 25, and nephew Julez in the city has certainly added weight to the report.

Nurses at New York’s St Luke’s Roosevelt hospital have allegedly been told to prepare the labour suite for the arrival of a celebrity VIP.

And designer Tina and sister Solange, were spotted leaving vintage store Stella Dallas in New York City yesterday, which means they are clearly keen to be on hand should the star go into labour.

The singer lives in a multi-million pound penthouse apartment in the city with rapper husband Jay Z.

It is thought the 30-year-old singer and husband Jay Z could be welcoming a child as early as today according to

The website reports that the half the floor of the hospital’s Labor and Delivery Suite has been booked by the singer, although the hospital has not confirmed the claims.

Beyoncé is thought to have reached the nine month mark in her pregnancy.

And in a clip from her Live at Roseland DVD she said: ‘Hello! It's September 23rd … Right now I’m actually shooting the video for 'Countdown' and I’m six months pregnant, pretending that my stomach is flat in body suits.’

If correct, it would mean that Beyoncé is set to give birth any day now.

In October the singer sparked rumours that she was wearing a prosthetic belly after her stomach appeared to collapse as she sat down during a live TV appearance in Australia.

Earlier this month the Love On Top singer labelled the reports 'ridiculous', and told Katie Couric that she didn't let the rumours effect her.
