Solange Knowles, younger sister of Beyonce, gave birth to a baby boy on October 18th. Solange was married at the end of February to football player Daniel Smith.
Knowles, 18, gave birth in Los Angeles to Daniel Julez J. Smith on Oct. 18, said Marcus R. Harris of Music World-Sanctuary, which manages Knowles, Beyonce and other artists.
"The whole family is very excited about their new gift of life," Harris said Tuesday.
For those counting the months, this means indeed that Solange was pregnant, though just barely, went she was married. Many of those posting to our previous article suspected right after the marriage announcement that Solange had been pregnant and forced to marry by her father. For those of you who were right, you have my full permission to gloat.
i figured she was pregnant, i was just waiting it out. At least she won't be a welfare mom with no insurance for her child. It really isnt that bad. Women have been having babies in their teens since the beginning of man, all over the world we are the only place where women wait til their 30s to have kids. Im not saysing its the best cuz studies have shown that both being too young or too old can be physically harmful to the child, but if an 11 year old's undeveloped body can have a healthy child in this day and age, Solange has nothing to worry about. I just worry that she was forced into the marriage. if they won't last, that is not good for the child either. Hopefully Solange will be like every other mother in history and be mature enough to take care of her child consciously. If a 20 year old with 4 kids in russia can manage a family and husband, I would hope she can do the same. I wait eagerly for youir comments.
I knew Solange was pregnant when she got married. I am glad that she is not like some other artists and did not run and have an abortion. I commend her for stepping up and taking care of her responsibilities. A child is a blessing no matter how he or she gets here. I wish Solange and Daniel all the best on their marriage and new baby. God Bless them all!!!
i guess she beat her sister 2 it (having a child & marriage) but i just hope that it wasn't forced upon her! I do think she has rushed things though i mean she's she's still so young & she's barely finished school! Nonetheless although many of us are critical about what goes on in that family, i must commend her for keeping the baby considering their life in Tinseltown! All the best to her :-)
I not surprised to hear that. From the beginning everyone knew she ws pregnant. I RESPECT her for not having an abotrtion and sin and letting god give her a beautiful gift, Daniel. Even though we know that her dad made her get married only so she wouldn't have that child out of wedlock. But can we really hate him for that, since they so called grew up in church. They should have made Beyonce marry Lindell and have the baby thay she got rid of. B knows that in the end god will deal with her for that. I do wish Solange the best of luck and I tip my hat off to her for having the courage not to care about what everyone will say and not committing a sin and punkking out like her older sister. I love the knowles and Beyonce career is amazing. Congrats to the knowles and Solange.
I never really have paid to much attention to Solange and her life I have always been a fan of Beyonce, but when I was looking at the awards on Monday I heard Beyonce say that she is thankful for her New Nephew so after that I have been following the story. Now back to the subject; what people have to realize that Solange is human to and she is entitled to her on mistakes. Which means we are human just like she is and just like we can have babies she can also the only thing different is she have the public eye trying to stay in her business and see we can do what we want and all we have to watch us is our next door neighbors trying to see what’s going on in our house, but see we trying to read up on Solange and how she doing when somebody else closer around us is all in our business and we quote on quote say I wish they say out of my business just imagine what Solange is saying " I am only human with a dollar sign in my name and I am entitled to my own mistakes and this is one mistake that I feel isn't a mistake, at least I am able to take care of what I have made so keep out of my business."
Best Wishes to Solange and the baby not to forget Daniel smith the father which people isn't recognizing Solange didn't get pregnant by herself.
It was no surprise whatsoever that the "New Baby Girl" Solange was indeed baking a bun in the old oven the whole time.What irate me was Mr. Knowles would not even confirm that his youngest daughter was pregnant like we're stupid or something.He should've been a least honest and announced it to the press from the very beginning.It's the least he could've done after countless years of us fans supporting Destiny's Child.
Still,my hat's off to Daniel,Solange and little Daniel Jr.
I knew the lil' loose woman was pregnant all a long. Ain't no way you gonna get married at the age I was last year just because you love somebody. It don't work that way. I hope she has a strong faith in God cuz knowing sex before marriage, she going straight to heck with a gasoline thong on. I bet you her daddy made her marry him because he knew she was f**king around with him. darn Beyonce, yo' own lil' sister beat you to marriage and a baby. I think she should've kept her darn legs close. Holla!!!
This does not surprise me at all. I mean I knew straight from the start that Solange was pregnant when I heard she was to be married. Why else? She was very beautiful, talented, and so much more. So for her to end all this before her career could even jump off to a start was just insane to me. But I am glad that she made the choice of getting married regardless of whether it was after she was conceived or not! The most important thing is that she's married. So Congratulations to Solange and I wish her the very best!
I think that she got married for the sake of not only her carrer but beyonc'e. Once mat found out she had a baby on the way she had to get married. Just like she didnt want to make and album and he made her. Mat controls there life's. We should just wait and c if the marraige last.
i'm only 18 too and could never imagine myself with a baby! Maybe Solange has nothing better to do with her time, than lay around having babies, since Beyonce is obviously the famous one in the family. instead of having to grow up too fast she should have just gone back to school.COLLEGE EDUCATION is more important!!
CONGRATS to solange with your new baby boy i know he is going to so cute and have talent because his mom and aunt have such talent in them but any way i wish yall luck. And i wish beyonce on her career.
Maybe it is HER business but she lives her life in the spotlight. The green-eyed monster in me wants to believe that she got married to save face (due to her unwed pregnancy). The mature adult in me is less likely to assume and take it for what it is. I'm sure most young women who find themselves in this situation would prefer to marry the baby's father. She just happen to have that chance. Is it really so surprising that she was having premarital sex? Coming from a famous family doesn't make her invincible to the weaknesses in the teenage psyche. She is still human . . .rich, beautiful, and talented . . .but still human. The funny thing is that this is Solange's moment. She has brought human life into this world - but I'll be darned if all the headlines don't start with Beyonce's name. (large print) BIG NEWS FOR BEYONCE (small print) Beyonce's "little" sister Solange gave birth . . .yadda yadda yadda. Where is the mention of the proud father? It will probably take an act of Congress to get the media to stop talking - If and when Beyonce announces she's preggers.
This story sounds very familiar to another famous singer, Brandy (and not just for the voluptuous lips). Let's see . . .gets married out of the blue (discreet and sudden, mind you). Next thing you know there is a new baby! Solange's PR Rep. was on the money by keeping all this hush hush. By limiting the details there is less room for "I told you so's" and shaking heads. Brandy, on the other hand goes off on a limb and allows MTV to document her entire pregnancy and makes out like her marriage was on cloud nine. In the end, she divorces - pulls a J.Lo/Britney and quickly shacks up with someone else and actually gets engaged. I could be wrong but Solange's attempt at the American Dream (house, picket fence, 2.5 kids, etc.) may be sincere. I guess we will just have to wait and see how this tangled web unwravels.
WOW, I've herd rumors, but I wasn't sure. I mean friends, family co-workers, everybody was talking about it to me and I just brushed it off saying yeah right, there's no way she's pregnant, she's too young and will her father approve? But I guess it all happen to be true, and how about I"m always the last to find out 'cause today I saw the "Soilder" video and Solange is in there with her belly and I'm like; She's pregnant. . . Is she have triplets?. . . I mean she was HUGE, and that's when I found out that the girl already had a baby boy. Man, she's very strong and I bet that baby boy was big as heck and labor had to be heck as well, 'cause she was HUGE! God Bless the whole Knowles Family including the Smith's!
I kind of though she was pregnant from the get go, but i always thought that the fact that she got married was romantic. I wish only the best to her and her new family. But my real concern is, when is Beyonce going to get pregnant and will it be by Jay-Z
i think that she is ruining her repitation. It's good that she kept the baby but why would you let a man take control of your body if you're not married. And that's a shame that her sister is older than her and doesn't have all of that stuff. I'm not hating but i'm telling the truth because I love destiny childs and the family and i always will no matter what, I just wanted you to know what's happening in the real world.
IT AMAZES ME WHEN I READ THE IGNORANCE OF SOME PEOPLE. SOLANGE RUINED HER LIFE AND BEYONCE'S CAREER...."GIVE ME A BREAK!!!" WHY CAN'T SHE BE A MOTHER,WIFE, AND HAVE A CAREER ALSO, HUNDREDS OF WOMEN ARE DOING IT TODAY. SHE'S BLESSED WITH A LOVING FAMILY AND AS LONG AS SHE'S HAPPY THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS. SOLANGE, "CONGRATULATIONS," ON YOUR NEW BUNDLE OF JOY, A BABY IS A BEAUTIFUL BLESSING :+)
