Well the cat is finally out of the bag! There’s officially a bun in Beyonce’s oven, and she couldn’t have chosen a more grandiose way to make the announcement. Last night on the MTV Video Music Awards Beyonce arrived on the red carpet looking absolutely stunning in a deep orange floor length frock, hands cupped over her growing belly to let the world know that she and Jay Z are expecting their first child.
Later, at the end of her retro styled performance (done in ultra high heels no less), Bey threw the microphone down, ripped open her glittering purple blazer and rubbed her tummy, Jay Z all smiles back stage.
For a woman who’s virtually grown up in the public eye, enduring countless claims of pregnancy over the years any time she gained a pound (or an ounce really), I think she’s more than deserving of such a grand scale announcement platform. The fame world was once obsessed by the idea, and now they can indulge in the reality.
So this just brings up one question…. Will she retire? In a CNN interview back in June, Beyonce, who turns 30 in a week, intimated, "I always said I'd have a baby at 30. But I also said I'm going to retire at 30. ... Only God knows."
Either way, congratulations Bey!
