(CBS News) -- Baby bump rumors and reports that Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting their second child continue to escalate after a string of recent public performances.
The singer has denied that she is pregnant and set off a social media firestorm when she shared a picture of herself enjoying a glass of wine on her Tumblr page.
While some speculated that the photo was staged—grape juice swapped in to look like wine—Beyonce’s camp reached out to “CBS This Morning” co-host Gayle King to put the rumor to bed.
King got a call on Tuesday that confirmed the couple is “absolutely, positively not pregnant at this time.”
“It’s a crazy rumor that started that they can’t seem to stop,” King said Wednesday on “CBS This Morning.”
“It’s true that she and Jay-Z absolutely want to have another baby when the time is right. And when the time is right, they will share it,” King added.
