Beyonce dramatically announced that she’s pregnant during the MTV Video Music Awards.
She gave assembled journalists the heads up while being photographed on the red carpet. Wearing a voluminous orange dress by Lanvin, she held her tummy, showing a little bump and announced, “I have a surprise!”
The singer, who is married to Jay-Z, then did a costume change, into a Dolce & Gabbana purple blazer and black trousers. She came on stage and teasingly announced “I want you to feel the love that’s growing insideme.” She then did a rip-roaring performance of Love On Top.
At the end of the song she tore open her blazer and stood rubbing her baby bump. The camera then switched to a proud-looking Jay-Z in the audience, while his friend Kanye West delightedly slapped him on the back.
Beyonce has been hinting recently about her plans to have a baby at some point soon. In an interview with Piers Morgan she revealed that she wanted a baby at 30 – she’s now 29 – so it looks like she has her wish.
