Beyonce Knowles' younger sister and fellow singer Solange is allegedly pregnant, but won't confirm the news until her debut movie JOHNSON FAMILY VACATION is released.

According to the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, Solange's father and manager MATHEW KNOWLES is so determined to keep the news quiet, he offered one celebrity news magazine exclusive access to Beyonce in exchange for them not running a story about the baby.

Solange, who married boyfriend DANIEL SMITH last month (FEB04), has fuelled reports by refusing to deny she's pregnant.

She says, "You know what, I don't talk about my marriage (and) I don't talk about my family.

"That's one thing that we all sat down and discussed - I know everyone has tried to get the Jay-Z question out of my sister - but what's part of my family is part of our family."
