BEYONCE KNOWLES' sister Solange's suspected pregnancy has finally been
confirmed, after she hosted a star-studded baby shower in Houston, Texas.
Solange, 18, stunned fans when it was announced she had wed college
American football player DANIEL SMITH in the Bahamas in February (04) when she
was just 17.
Speculation soon followed that the singer and actress was pregnant and her
manager father MATHEW (corr.) - who is a strict Christian - was desperate to
keep the baby news out of the media until after her film JOHNSON FAMILY
VACATION opened in
Over 300 family and friends attended Sunday's (01AUG04) shower, including
Beyonce and her boyfriend Jay-Z and Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams of
Destiny's Child. The guests, including a scattering of sports stars, were
singing and dancing.
MARCUS R HARRIS of MUSIC WORLD-SANCTUARY says, "It was more than just
melodies and vocal expression. It was about the celebration of this new
"It was a phenomenal event, quite chic and very personable."
Despite admitting Solange is preparing for motherhood, the Knowles family
haven't released a due date.
