The 'Love On Top' singer is expected to arrive at the New York hospital any day.

Beyonce is apparently ready to check herself into hospital to give birth to her first child.

The Destiny's Child singer is expected to arrive at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan's New York any day according to gossip site Media Takeout.

The website reports that staff at the hospital have been told to expect a "high profile" arrival any day from Tuesday (27th December).

Fellow artist and friend Alicia Keys gave birth to her son Egypt at the same hospital back in 2010.

The due date of the child has been kept a secret by Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z and the singer has been spotted showing off her bump at a variety of events over the past couple of months.
