There's been a lot of news regarding celebrity pregnancy and births this summer (it must be something in the Hollywood air this year), but no other baby news is going to be able to trump what we heard last night. Beyoncé stole the show at last night's Video Music Awards and not just with her outstanding performance. The dancing diva made a huge announcement on the red carpet, telling the press that she and Jay-Z are expecting their very first child!
That's right, Destiny is bringing Ms. Knowles a Child and the world couldn't be more thrilled for her. The divine singer proudly held her belly for photographers and posed in a loose-fitting, but gorgeous dress (let's be honest, Beyonce can rock anything). MTV confirmed the news by tweeting "OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!" Her rep also made a statement saying "I'm happy to say it's true."
The soon-to-be mom couldn't contain her joy and even made the news known even further by providing hints to the audience during her own performance. Before performing her song Love on Top, she said to the crowd "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me," and then began singing. All together now: awww! When the performance was over, Beyoncé dropped her mic, unbuttoned her shirt, and started proudly rubbing her baby bump. Jay-Z was seen grinning from ear to ear, clearly excited about the upcoming addition to his family. Congratulations to the happy couple! This is sure to be one lucky baby.
