Grammy Award singer Beyonce is pregnant with her first baby. The soon-to-be mother made the announcement herself on Sunday, at MTV Video Music Awards, Us Weekly reports.
Superstar Beyonce Giselle Knowles and husband Jay-Z are going to be parents very soon. On Sunday, at MTV Video Music Awards – held at Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California, the glamorous diva showed up in a beautiful long red gown, hiding her baby bump. Well, it was about time, seeing that she and Jay-Z are married for three years now.
And it appears that this baby was not just a happy accident. The couple planned the pregnancy way before. On June 27, Beyonce gave the first hint regarding her soon-to-be mother state. She was invited to appear on Piers Morgan Tonight show, which airs on CNN. There, she confessed her plans about being a mother, saying “”I always said I would have a baby at 30”. The singer is still 29, but not for long. She is going to turn 30 on September 4. Her husband, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter), is 41.
The couple said “I do” on April 4, 2008, in New York City. Beyonce and Jay-Z started dating in 2002, after having had the experience of several collaborations in the music sector. Despite the fact that the rumors started gathering on them dating, they did not confirm they were a couple for a while. Beyonce did not show off her wedding ring until months after the wedding, on September 5, 2008, at the Fashion Rocks concert in New York. Several months later, in February 2009, the couple was voted by Forbes the highest paid couple in Hollywood. They made it to the top of the list in 2010 as well.
Beyonce’s latest album, “4” was released on June 24, 2011 and the first week sales reached 310,000 copies. This made her the second female artist to have her first four studio albums debut atop the Billboard 200.
It seems that everything she does reached the top of the tops. Will motherhood be the same?
