Katie Couric and Beyonce are good friends… we hear:
When Katie Couric greeted Beyonce Knowles with a hug before their “20/20” interview, she couldn’t resist giving the world’s most famous, fabulous and fierce baby belly a little rub.
“I bet your mom does it all the time, and your sister,” Couric said.
“Oh yeah. I mean, I can’t walk. I have somebody holding me and hugging, and there’s going to be so much love around the baby,” Knowles said, laughing.
Last summer, while Knowles performed four nights of sold-out shows at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom, a sequinned mini-dress was strategically draped over her growing belly. The concerts have been captured on a DVD, “Live at Roseland: Elements of 4,” which was released this week.
Knowles, 30, already has the resume of a legend: singer, songwriter, actor, fashion designer and model. So it’s no surprise that for the concert film she was performer, director, choreographer and producer — all in one.

Beyonce’s co-parent and husband is, of course, hip-hop star/mogul Jay-Z. In August, Jay was among the thrilled onlookers when Knowles “announced” her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards. Knowles sang her hit “Love On Top” — while hiding her secret under her top. After the song, she opened her jacket and rubbed her belly, smiling.
