Jay-Z and Beyoncé Expecting First Child


Stop the presses. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Beyoncé Knowles are expecting their first child and this time it’s not a rumor.

Beyoncé, who took the MTV Video Music Awards stage unusually clothed from head to toe, ended her performance of “Love on Top” by unbuttoning her blouse to reveal a small baby bump. The R&B singer briefly rubbed her belly and broke into laughter to the VMA crowd’s delight.

The cameras quickly cut away to a beaming Jay-Z, Beyoncé’s husband of three years, as Kanye West cheered him on. Lady Gaga celebrated by jumping up and down right behind Yeezy. Typically stoic, Hov momentarily restrained his excitement before giving into the moment. The Jigga Man smiled and clapped—appearing content that the superstar couple was able to break B’s pregnancy news on their own terms. Jay and B have been persecuted with pregnancy rumors for years.

Stay tuned for more VMA coverage—XXL Staff

  • MR. UNDI$PUTED THE MOGUL

    HERE IT IS THE END OF AUGUST OF 2011 & THE OUTRIGHT DISRESPECTFULNESS & STUPIDITY OF SOME PEOPLE IS JUST DOWN RIGHT RIDICULOUS. INSTEAD OF BEING CONGRATULATORY TO 2 VERY SUCCESSFUL AFRICAN AMERICAN PEOPLE, WE’VE GOT IDIOTS ALL OVER THESE WEBSITES, TALKING ABOUT BABY CAMEL’S & OTHER BS! IT’S EASY TO SIT AT YOUR COMPUTER & TALK ISH ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE WHEN NO ONE CAN SEE WHAT YOUR DUMB ASS LOOKS LIKE! AS FOR A PUBLICITY STUNT, WHAT ABOUT THE 8 MILLION OTHER TIMES WHEN THESE FAKE ASS WEBSITE’S HAVE SAID BEYONCE WAS PREGNANT WHEN SHE WASN’T. HAVING A CHILD IS A BLESSING FROM GOD! IT SHOULDN’T BE A CURSE & OTHER PEOPLE SHOULD MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS!

    PEACE & GET MONEY!!!
    MOGUL $$$ GAME ’11!!

    Congrats to the Carters on their happy news. may they have a healthy and happy baby. I’d lay money that it’s a boy. No doubt Bey will be a beautiful pregnant mom.

    Well.. I see whats wrong with the world. Everyone has to be so negative about something that means so much to the next person. Everyone told about their pregnancy in a different way. Some people are young and some are older. Some people are prepared for pregnancy and some arent. Just being happy for the next person is so hard for some people. Okay so she did it at the VMA.. I sat on the side of my bed and annouced it. Some people dont tell at all and thats a personal choice to make. Everyone whats to have a say so in something that will never affect thier lives. Stop saying that they hope the baby doesnt look like Jay-Z he may not be the hottest man in the world but that still his child. I just hope the child is healthy. Thats what we should all pray for. SMH at the crazy comments.
