There is nothing more special in life than when a man supports his wife’s efforts to bring a healthy baby into the world. And that’s just what Jay-Z has done with his wife, Beyoncè.
According to US Weekly, allegedly Beyoncè has been “partially” vegan for most of her pregnancy, which spurred Jay, 42, to join his wife’s alternative diet and lifestyle.
“Jay’s trying to be disciplined, and he needs the energy to support her,” a source adds.
Even though that quote from an anonymous source seems fabricated, as well as a backhanded compliment, we doubt the multi-platinum artist needs a change in diet to have the energy to support his wife through her pregnancy.
But what may explain Hov’s lack of energy is his rigorous touring schedule for his latest project Watch The Throne, a collaborative effort with super-producer Kanye West. Much in the same vein as his protégé Rihanna, who reportedly fell ill due to exhaustion, Live Nation, which owns Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint, wants to recoup their investment after the lackluster sells of Throne, so they’ve cunningly put together an absurd touring schedule for its legendary artists.
But this is purely speculation, and no one knows how Jay-Z is holding up amongst a grueling 33 shows in 60 days tour. Either way, by adhering to at least some of the principles of a vegan diet, Jay-Z is undoubtedly giving himself a great chance to make it through healthily.
As far as the talented Beyonce is concerned, her attention to her diet seemed to have helped her stay up dancing to 4 a.m. with her husband at The Spare Room in The Roosevelt Hotel after his Los Angeles concert appearance, according to observers.
“I’ve been really conscious [about food],” Beyonce told 20/20. “I’ve been trying my best not to lose control!”
