Singer Beyonce is pregnant and she showed it off at the 2011 Video Music Awards (VMAs).
After she performed Love on Top at the event to a roar of applause, she dropped her mic, unbuttoned her blazer, and rubbed her stomach, which was clearly showing a baby bump.
Her move delighted her rapper husband Jay-Z and their friend Kanye West.
Before that, she told reporters that she had a surprise while posing for photos with her hand touching her stomach. Her rep also confirmed to People that she was pregnant.
Her VMA performance merely put to rest any doubts in an emphatic yet classy manner.
Beyonce, a wildly successful and award-winning musician for the past decade, recently indicated that she's ready to focus on her family and her unborn child and possibly let her career take a backseat.
When you're young --18 or 19 -- you have the energy and drive. That's the time to work as hard as you can. Now I'm a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children, Beyonce told In Style, reported USA Today.
