'Us Weekly' stands by pregnancy report despite denial by pop star's mother.

"No, no it's not true. Not right now," pop singer Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles told The Ellen DeGeneres Show audience today regarding an US Weekly report that her Grammy-winning daughter is pregnant.

The entertainment magazine's Nov. 1 issue includes an article stating that Beyonce and her husband, fellow musician Jay-Z, are expecting their first child, Reuters reports.

Tina Knowles squashed the pregnancy speculation by telling host Ellen DeGeneres, "with all the rumors, by now I should have five or six grandchildren."

An Us Weekly spokeswoman told Reuters on Thursday: "We stand by our reporting."
