Did Jay Z announce Beyonce's 2nd pregnancy at Paris concert?

Jay Z may have subtly announced that he and his superstar wife Beyonce are expecting their second child. While performing his new song 'Beach is Better' at the Paris leg of their On The Run tour, Jay Z changed up the lyrics to make the announcement.

Instead he spit; "Can't take this money with you, Burn this shit up like I'm richer, Nigga's asking ...cause she pregnant with another one"

And the drama unfolds. TMZ just broke the news that the doctor who performed the endoscopy on late legendary comedian Joan Rivers at Yorkville Endoscopy, NY, has been fired by the clinic's board.
Dr. Lawrence Cohen stepped down after the board asked him to do so - however, the board isn't directly blaming him for Joan's death..
A rep for the clinic confirmed he was ousted from his position as medical director. According to our sources ... the board's issue with Cohen is that he allowed Joan's doc to step in and perform an unauthorized procedure.

He's been on administrative leave since Joan's procedure on August 28.
