Way to steal the show, Beyonce!

The most memorable moment of Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards had nothing to do with music, fashion or a cross-dressing Lady Gaga. Instead, it was some big news from a not-so-single lady.

In case you haven’t already heard, superstar singer Beyonce and rapper husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child.

Way to steal the show, mama!

The buzz was deafening even before the start of the VMAs when Beyonce showed off her belly bump on the award show’s black carpet. Dressed in a flowy, off the shoulder orange gown, the singer cradled her baby in a picture that MTV tweeted with the message "OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!"

Within moments “BEYONCE IS PREGNANT” was trending on Twitter.

It seemed like rumors of a baby-on-board popped up every few months following the couple's top-secret wedding in 2008. The singer told CNN Piers Morgan that she “always said I'd have a baby at 30” and it looks like she has made her deadline as her birthday is next week.

At the VMAs the bump distracted from Lady Gaga in character as her male alter-ego, Joe Calderone (what was that all about anyway?) and even Britney Spears – who received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award – seemed to be rushing through her acceptance speech to introduce Beyonce’s performance.

“I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me,” Beyonce told the audience before launching into her single “Love on Top” which includes the lyric “Everybody asks me why I’m smiling out from ear to ear.”

Well now we know. Beyonce made it official when she ended her rousing performance by dropping the microphone, unbuttoning her sequined jacket and rubbing the baby bump.

Cue husband Jay-Z in the audience smiling and clapping wildly while friend and musical collaborator Kanye West patted him on the back.

Let the speculation over baby names, boy or girl and due dates commence!

    Of course this was no news because it wasnt earthquake, hurricane or mass killings. watching TV and seeing something to smile about even for 5 minutes to me is a welcome DIVERSION. whether her latest album sells or not, believe me, she will not be taking out a loan to feed her kid. all she did was share her news with colleagues and fans. congratulations to both of them

    I thought the show was entertaining...which is what it was supposed to be. I certainly agree that those of you that thought it all such a "waste"; why did you"waste" your time to comment...especially your nasty comments. I am very happy that Britney Spears has recovered from her personal obstacles; we all have them, and I am not particularly a fan, but I respect her stamina. I don't consider her as a legend. Beyonce Knowles will be considered a legend whether many of you like it or not. Not because she is popular, but because she is extremely talented. I have never heard her being described as a diva either. People commenting on the possible appearance of a baby....you're sick. Someone described her as "a wench"....you need prayer. Wishing the Carter family much joy!

    She is part of the entertainment business. It's not a suprise that she waited until the MTV to share it with the world. She loves her career and her fans. I notice that most people post so many negatives things when someone is extremely happy and satisified with life. The ones who are saying " get a life", this is part of our everyday life, you are jealous because you can't get the attention. I believe she can be a a role model for young african american girls. It shows that not all African American girls think about gert pregnant at an early age. Conratulations and I believe they are going to going to be a great parents. On that, note please posters be a little bit more kind to people.

    Dear MTV, when was the last time you play music videos during the daytime? Seriously you need to change the your name from MTV to RTV (Reality TV). I was there when you first launched 30 years ago. Watch videos all day and night from Yo MTV Raps to Headbangers Ball. Now its Jersey Shore this and Teen Mom that. And than you came out with MTV2 to play some music videos. But now that is even worries, with re-runs of Rob and Big and Jacka$$ shows.

    Can we get our MTV back.

Jay-Z is probably the GREATEST RAPPER ALIVE and Beyonce' is an undeniable SUPERSTAR (sold out tours, platnium record sales, etc.) You on the other hand are probably fat, ugly, underpaid, and unhappy. How else could you explain hating on a married couple that is excited about becoming first time parents?

    I hope motherhood will make Beyonce come off as more human in not only her music but also her persona and image. I've never been blown away by her over the top, cheesy diva image. I've especially never been all that impressed with her shouting and hollering that people call "singing." Beyonce was obviously overflowing with joy at the announcement of her baby, could it have been done in better taste? Sure, but she seemed to really be in the moment, so good for her that she was bold enough to announce her pregnancy at an awards show.

    Oh I wish the haters would get a life! I'm quite HAPPY for Beyonce (Jay-Z) and wish them all the best. It was the cutest way for a couple that keeps their relationship out of the media to announce the news of their first child!! - For those of you that don't care, why comment!?!

    THAT....was the cutest and BEST moment of the show......I am so sick of Lady GaGa ALWAYS trying to draw attention to herself when she realy doesn't needs to, because she can really sing; I am so sick of Chris Brown's acrobatic endeavors....Lil Wyanes gold teeth and tatoos....Kim K's butt.....justin B dressed like a gansta rapper...when he really does have true talent and a humble heart..always thanking his Maker for this talent....etc etc....

    EGO EGO EGO EGO EGO EGO is all Beyonce has. She's been pregnant for a while and purposely try to steal Britney's night. Well too bad for her, her baby thing is not going to be labeled as a memorable moment in VMA history and her performance was just boring.

      Yep. I'd love to see Beyonce take 5+ yrs off to actually raise her own kid. You know JayZ & Beyonce have more money than they could ever spend in a lifetime so why not take a break from show biz and bond w/your kiddo... Doubt it will happen, though.

      Beyonce will be a great mother. She practically raised her nephew she takes him to school and takes him out mostly everywhere she goes. and her a jay-z have a strong relationship they have been dating since 2003. thats 8 years now. she loves children. her mother seems ideal and i strongly think her parenting skills would have rubbed off on Beyonce.

    I for one thought she looked absolutely beautiful and am very happy for both of them. Unlike the Kardashians and the Snookies, she is a talented star who deserves a little publicity. What I loved the most about the whole thing was for years the tabloids were reporting she was pregnant almost once a month. Now when they least expect it, she actually is. She took control and announced it the way she wanted to...instead of by a "close friend" looking for a couple bucks.

      I completely agree. I think most people were a little puzzled when she came out for her performance so fully covered. She usually isn't and I hadn't seen the red carpet, so at first I didn't quite get it. Then when she took the coat off and rubbed the bump, I was like, "YAY!!". So many of these stars don't even have the chance to announce their own good news, so I applaud her for doing it on her terms, not the terms of some paparazzi.

    It never happened before it happened to a celebrity, when they are expecting, they want to make sure that everyone knows how happy and blessed they feel. I mean, yeah, you should be exited but come onnnn!! Do you really need to unbutton your shirt and make such a spectacle of it?? It's part of life and happy times but should not be exploited for publicity reasons and maybe get the low sales of the new album a little higher.

      The point of ENTERTAINMENT is to make your audience feel good and she did that in a non sleazy way. She sang a great song, performed well, then made everyone howl with enjoyment over the revelation of a baby being born. GOSH! At least a million people were touched by that moment. If a FEW of you didn't like it, that's a bonus:) GET OVER IT!

      Beyonce was not exploiting her pregnancy in anyway, she was sharing her joy. She looked radiant and Jay Z looked extremely blessed. If you can't stand to see a pregnant, married, successful woman happy about having a baby then you are truly sad. I congratulate her and Jay Z. They're celebraties that did it correctly. They dated, married, enjoyed themselves and now they are having a baby. Congrats Beyonce & Jay Z. Disregard the haters.

I don't think this is BREAKING NEWS actually I am sure it was so planned the announcing of when and where she would let people know she was pg that is ... that it makes it so predictable....especially if she is more than 2-3 months...WHY wait for the VMAs is all I am saying..I truly believe it is to get the attention of all..but I guess it makes better for the sagging album sales.

      She's married. So, its REALLY no ones business. I think she deserves more than the negativity everyone else is hurling around here.

      She's a successful, MARRIED, 30 year old woman. She should be applauded for getting married, staying married 5 years (a feat in Hollywood) and having a baby after her marriage has had time to become stable. She can really be a good role model for young black women.

      Oh...and I also applaud her for not waiting until she's nearly menopausal out of vanity and then needing to adopt 5 dozen kids from around the world or use fertility treatments to have kids. A dirty little secret of Hollywood is how many of those actresses have to use egg donors to have their babies after 40.
