Beyonce Knowles made a big announcement on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards: She’s pregnant with what will be the first child for her and husband Jay-Z.

Though no official confirmation or statement has been made to EW, the singer flaunted her bump for photographers, telling them “I have a surprise for you guys,” before posing for them. MTV also tweeted the news, writing “OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!”

Beyonce and Jay-Z have been married since 2008.

UPDATE: As she began her performance of “Love on Top” on the VMAs, Beyonce said to the crowd, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.” After her performance, she dropped her mic, unbuttoned her coat, and rubbed her belly, while Kanye West congratulated a beaming Jay-Z in the audience.

      Hello there. I’m so glad I found your blog, I actually oscidvered this by accident, when I’d been browsing Google for something else entirely, Just the same I’m here now and would certainly wish to express gratitude for a excellent blog posting and a over-all intriguing blog (I furthermore love the theme/design). I’ve saved it and in addition subscribed to your Rss feeds

  • Christine

    Good for them.

  • Liv

    It looks like she’s just bunching the fabric of her dress not that she’s pregnant. If I were a celebrity I would leak stories all the time that weren’t true. It would be the greatest entertainment.

    • Bentley

      Me to Liv!! LOL

  • Delvin C,

    Since no one will say it I will Jay-Z you are NOT the farther.

    • MCS

      Farther from what?

    • datruth82

    • harry

    • Carlos

      @McProphet; that’s exactly what I stated. Jay Z look like Ceasar the Ape.

    • B

      What a non-racist statement.

      • ICK

        I hope he pays child support.

    • nonshallowhal

      Apparently they are well matched personality wise. He clearly adores her and treats her with respect. They have always conducted themselves well in public. Who cares what he looks like, he’s solid on all the stuff that REALLY matters. Plus, he’s not hideous, he just looks like an average black male. But I guess all those look like apes, huh? Jerk.

    • Dolores

      Don’t be a hater,he may be ugly to you but beauty is in the eyes of the be hoilder bet he would not ask you to spread your legs for him DONKEY KONG

  • Demond

    I didn’t know she was pregnant until after her performance at the VMAs.I didn’t watch the pre show.I knew she was pregnant when she opened her jacket and rubbed her stomach.She gave one of the best performances of the night.You can only hope the baby gets her looks but I don’t think that is going to happen.

    • SaraS

      Oh really, that’s when you figured it out? Idiot.

      • SeeingStars

        Well, she didn’t exactly look pregnant in her dress or costume.

      • etm

        Wow, how rude are you?

      • Demond

        @SaraS Read my comment first before you call me a idiot, dumbass.

      • JS

        Do you call people names in person, or only when you’re hiding behind your computer screen?

    • jackie

      Eh, I can see where Sara S is coming from. He didn’t watch the pre-show and dedicated 3 sentences to when he found out she was pregnant (which was the whole point of this article). Kind of a dumb comment.
      I am happy for the couple though; she really waited with him until they were ready for marriage and then kids. I bet that’s what her year off was for.

      • Demond

        @jackie How the hell is my comment dumb.I’m shocked that she was pregnant by the end of her performance when she rubbed her belly at the end of her performance and my whole comment is about her pregnancy not just three sentences.I got back home to watch the VMAs when Gaga was performing.Don’t we come here to comment about what we felt at the time of seeing these events happen.Some people on this site can be real jackasses for no reason.

    • KC

      I thought she was permanetly pregnant this whole time looking at the size of her….

      • aliciaoden

        I need friend my life

  • Lisa

    Her performance was amazing the end was really cute.

  • Ella

    Am so happy for u beyonce. God bless u
