Beyonce Knowles is reportedly “overwhelmed” with Gwyneth Paltrow’s pregnancy advice.

The 30-year-old songstress is good friends with the Oscar-winning actress. Gwyneth has two children with her husband Chris Martin - seven-year-old Apple and Moses, five – while Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z announced her pregnancy last month.

The couple spend a lot of time with Gwyneth and Chris, and have always given each other support throughout their careers.

However, a source has revealed that Beyoncé is becoming a little overwhelmed with her friend’s parenting tips.

“Gwyneth has known about this pregnancy for over a month and has being telling Beyoncé to drink a shot of wheatgrass each morning and to rub her belly with coconut oil to prevent stretch marks,” a source told Closer magazine. “She’s also advised her to meditate for an hour every day and soak her feet in ice water to prevent swelling.

“Beyoncé knows Gwyneth is just trying to show how much she cares, but her advice can be a little overwhelming.”

Gwyneth is making sure she sends Beyoncé all the things she think her friend will need while pregnant.

However, the source added that the American superstar is keen to follow her own routine.

“[Gwyneth’s] sending packages of herbs and vitamins – but Beyoncé wants to do things her own way, what suits her best and not to be told what to eat,” the source continued.
