Beyonce is pregnant with her second child, according to reports.

The news follows rumours that the pop star was expecting a sibling for Blue Ivy Carter, which began when she wore a loose fitting gown to the Met Gala in New York and continued when she cancelled a show in Antwerp, Belgium earlier this week because of doctor's orders.

E! Online is reporting that 'multiple sources' have confirmed the pregnancy, though they have added that they reached out to Beyonce's rep for an official line, but received a 'no comment' response.

The singer is currently mid-way through her Mrs Carter Show world tour, which is due to finish in New York on August 5.

Beyonce has unveiled a spate of new songs this year, including the track 'Grown Woman', which premiered via a Pepsi advert shown during this year's Super Bowl, and 'Standing In The Sun', which features in a television commercial for high street retailers H&M. It has not yet been confirmed if either song will appear on the singer's forthcoming new album.

Beyonce gave birth to her and husband Jay-Z's first child, Blue Ivy, on January 7, 2012.
