Has the sex of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby-to-be been outed…by a pair of Christian Louboutin baby booties? We read on Celebrity Baby Scoop that Jay-Z’s sister, Annie, may have inadvertently spilled the beans when she ordered a custom-made pair of baby booties in a very revealing color…pink!
The alleged leak is linked to a snitch inside the shoe-gasmic world of Christian Louboutin -- where custom baby booties, a must-have for every celebrity tyke, are so in demand they must be ordered six months in advance!
It's hard to know whether this "inside info" is truly legit, but we do know on good authority that the parents-to-be know the sex of that already stylish bun in the oven. Beyonce's sister, Solange, told the The Wall Street Journal as much during Fashion Week in New York last week, and also revealed that the couple is contemplating names. (We gotta love this baby-to-be’s aunties, who are spilling more deets than the couple themselves!) So far, Mrs. Sasha Fierce is considerably coyer about the baby's gender than she was about the pregnancy itself, when she dramatically revealed her baby bump on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.
If Beyonce’s inadvertent gender reveal is true, it’s a valuable lesson for everyone trying to keep the sex of that baby bump under wraps: If you want to keep it a secret, tell no one. True, most of us aren’t A-List celebrities in the traditional sense, but when you’re pregnant you do become a star of sorts among your friends and family. Parents, siblings and close friends who are dying to know whether to break out the pink or blue will be studying you and your bump like never before. If you tell one or two people the sex of your precious kiddo in confidence, prepare for the possibility that they might let a revealing pronoun slip, and your big news will spread like wildfire.
If you and your partner want to know your baby’s gender in advance, but want to wait until after the birth to make that dramatic “It’s a Boy!” or “It’s a Girl!” pronouncement, do yourself a favor and keep your lips zipped. Otherwise, something as simple as a pair of pink baby booties might leak the news before you do.
