BeyoncÃ© Knowles stole the show at the Video Music Awards on Sunday night when she announced live on stage that she was pregnant with Jay-Z‘s baby. Dressed in an elegant, loose-fitting red gown, BeyoncÃ© teased reporters before her performance by cupping her belly and saying, “I have a surprise.”
BeyoncÃ©, 29, has been plagued with pregnancy rumors for years and it seems like the latest round of gossip about her growing baby bump actually were true after all!
Before performing “Love on Top” at the VMAs, BeyoncÃ© told the audience, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me.” After her performance, BeyoncÃ© unbuttoned her jacked, rubbed her rounded stomach and visually announced that she and husband Jay-Z were expecting a baby. The screams from the audience were deafening.
BeyoncÃ©’s husband, rapper Jay-Z, reacted to his wife’s announcement with a beaming smile, clapping loudly while Kanye West slapped him on the back.
“I think she’ll be an incredible mother,” Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland told EOnline.com. “She’s always been motherly. I think that takes after so many traits from her mother [Tina Knowles]. I just think it’s going to be so natural for her. It’s natural for her now. I can’t believe this to this day.”
BeyoncÃ©’s pregnancy could delay her role in Clint Eastwood‘s remake film of A Star Is Born, which was tentatively due to start shooting in February, according to Deadline.com.
