Beyonce has reignited speculation that she is expecting her second child after being snapped with a MacBook strategically placed over her stomach on two separate occasions. The Drunk in Love hitmaker, who already has a daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, with rapper husband Jay Z, was seen wearing a loose, flowing maxi-dress, an oversized denim jacket and flip flops upon her return from a family break in the Hamptons.

As she disembarked a helicopter at West Side Heliport and walked to a waiting car, the Grammy Award-winner kept her laptop close to her body, and it seemed she may have been using it to hide growing baby curves.

As expected, some fans are now getting excited at the possibility that Queen Bey is expecting baby number two. Considering it's been a month since the mother-of-one posted her last full-body pic on Instagram, it's safe to say that speculation is rife.

This is not the first time that the superstar has been hit with pregnancy rumours. In January, her Destiny's Child band member Michelle Williams dismissed rumours after the singer posted an Instagram picture of herself buried on the beach with what looked appeared to be a baby belly made of sand. "First of all, if you look at the picture, the baby bump is probably where her knees probably really are... Just stop it, stop it," she said during an appearance on US Talk show The View. "You know, when she was pregnant, people said that she wasn't pregnant. There's just no truth to it. Sorry!" she added.

In June, it was reported on In Touch that the power couple had enlisted the help of a surrogate to carry their second child. "They were trying for several months, but Beyonce was having trouble. She was scared about another high-risk pregnancy, so surrogacy became the best decision for them," an insider told the website.

"They didn't want to take any more risks, so after all the iron-clad legal documents were drawn up, it took them about two months to find the perfect woman to carry their child," the insider continued. "The surrogate is still in the early stages of the pregnancy, so they have yet to announce it to the public."
