Beyonce Knowles wedding rumours
Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z applied for a marriage license in New York yesterday (01.04.08).
The pair - who have been dating for six years - reportedly obtained the document in Scarsdale, and now have 60 days to tie the knot.
Friends of the couple have confirmed the news, and hinted 38-year-old Jay-Z and Beyonce, 26, are planning to get married in May.
One friend said: "Jay is trying to pull it together quickly to keep it quiet. They really wanted it to be private."
Last month, Beyonce sparked engagement rumours after she was spotted wearing a diamond band on her ring finger.
It had been rumoured that Jay-Z proposed to Beyonce during a luxury holiday in Cannes, France, last May.
The 'Crazy In Love' singer has made no secret of her desire to settle down with Jay-Z.
She said: "I want to get married and I really want a family. In a perfect world I'd have two boys and a girl. You know someone loves you by the way he treats you and respects you. Me and Jay respect each other."
