Beyonce's big baby news at the VMAs
Baby rumors began swirling when Beyonce appeared on the black carpet at MTV’s VMAs wearing a flowy red dress and holding her belly.
And guess what: The rumors are true.
The singer’s publicist confirms to CNN that Beyonce and husband Jay-Z are, in fact, expecting a child.
In June, Beyonce responded to pregnancy rumors, telling CNN's Piers Morgan, "Only God knows" if a baby was in her future.
"I always said I'd have a baby at 30. I'm 29. But I also said I was going to retire at 30. I'm not retiring."
Beyonce turns 30 on September 4.
"I feel like 30 is the ideal age, because you're mature enough to know who you are and have your boundaries and your standards and not be afraid of too polite, but young enough to be a young woman," she added. "I'm so looking forward to it."
Beyonce and Jay-Z, who have been together since 2002, were married in 2008.
That’s going to be one talented kid. Congrats!

About this blog
Our daily cheat-sheet for breaking celebrity news, Hollywood buzz and your pop-culture obsessions.
I am no longer certain where you are getting your information, but great topic. I must spend a while finding out more or figuring out more. Thank you for great information I used to be in search of this information for my mission.
Do I care for Beyonce's music? No. But do I care for any woman to have a happy healthy newborn? Yes. Congratulations to Beyonce and Jay-Z for that!
s a healthy baby, but also hope he or she looks like the mom as he is really ugly. I also hate the way they spend money. She just bought a purse for $58,000. She should be ashamed. Please lovers of these two, don't tell me it's their money cause I already know that, but no one deserves to make that kind of money and spend that way.
WHY IS THIS SUCH A BIG DEAL? MILLIONS OF PEOPLE GET PREGNANT EVERY DAY.
white people know all.
she is a wanna be white. some black people are and visa versa. That baby may be rich and thats a good thing
because it will be fugly not ugly. dumber than roocks. If her thighs get much bigger she will will have to be
taken off tv. she is gonna be huge mom after baby is born, believe me. Her bones are hugh and so is her thighs,
just like her ma. Only she will be the bigger one by far. every song sounds the same, just like brittany, except
brit is way prettier, take that kayne west. (by the way she knew west would do that for her and let her play\
all sweet and give her time to Taylor. Maybe she was smart by marrying that old man, cause he will always
think she is cute and thin, and she can trust him around the maids, because believe you me nobody would want
him. always helping people write songs, but never doing a complete song by himself. I am surprise he hasn't
had Beo in a video, like so may do. like heidi klum and that dog of hers. how did these people make it. B stick
your money back and get tid of that ugly thing I mean ugly again. Look how much heidi's marriage took out of her
you can see it in her face, she is so not happy with this kook. just sayin. if you don't save the money now you
will pay later when nobody will have u.
Babies are a blessing... 🙂
oh yes i am a big fan of beyonce and there baby is going to be super cute
am so happy for u both.
This baby will look like a baby that is all.
You also eat fried chicken and watermelon. That stereotype is beyond old. You probably has Jay-Z NWA and Tupac's cd's. Don't hate because we're everything you'd like to be.
And where can I buy your neighbors new cd? Just asking!
wantabe white. Loved her until she got messed up with JZ, I mean messed up too.
B needs to come out of the closet and say she wants to white. I think J wanted baby
b wan't ready, she is still young and trying to get to the top. with her marring jz it will
make her road harder to travel. he is a bad influence. The white race will accept u,
it is not a bad thing to want to belong to another race., really. Same way with west
he hates whites, but b wants to be white, so get out of that closet, now. J is to
angry ugly, and that baby will be UGLY. B married below her standards. Cac
u see gwena paltrow, beyonce, j being friends, A STUNT people A STUNT.
That didn’t stop the singer from getting up on stage and belting out a number, which seemed to be dedicated to the upcoming arrival. http://bit.ly/pbZ1nH
So happy for both of them! That's going to be the most talented child ever.
Her and 10 million other women that are knocked up, who really gives a shhyt?
I think we ALL hope (for the baby's sake) that the baby looks like Beyonce. A baby that looks like JayZ will be a black Chewbacca.
For Heaven's sake, did she find a cure for cancer? for aids? Oh, she's having a baby . . . and this is NEWS, CNN????
Really?? Who gives a rats ass??
Oh, man! Somebody got to her before me!! Something else to scratch off my to-do list.
you are all just plain sad.
I don't know about you, but I think there should be a comma between "big" and "baby".
you people need to think about the good things in life.
most of you people are just plain negative.
I wish them the best. However I can't help but think of the lyric, "Your daddy's rich and your mamma's good-looking," in this.
Yes, the daddy is ugly and I hope the baby looks like mommy but they have enough money to pay for surgery etc. So whatever
The baby wil look hust like its satan worshipping father. Ugly as hell
I am sure you know because this probably discribes you
Hopefully the kid will have more talent than she does.
She is one classy Lady and I have nothing but the best wishes for them.
Beyonce was paid $2 million dollars to perform in St. Barts in 2010 by Gadhafi's son Hannibal... the same son whose wife severely burned their Ethiopian nanny and has been in the news for decades for his abuse of his wife and their servants. Wonder if Beyonce will ever feel the need to help that Ethiopian woman with her medical bills. Doubt it. That poor woman does not have $2 million dollars to throw around.
I'M SO HAPPY FOR THE BOTH OF THEM!!!! WOO HOO & CONGRATS TO JAY & BEY ON THERE LITTLE ONE!!! I never seen so many haters before in my life (reading some of these comments)...some of yall need to get a life.
Wow! What does the Ghadafi performance have to do with such a blessed event in this husband and wife's life? As they are celebrities it does not mean they are not human begins. SMH
She was paid $2 million dollars for a private performance for a vicious man and his cruel wife who are known for their human rights abuses against their servants and others and we should just forget that? Tell it to the Ethiopian nanny who was so horribly scalded by Gadhafi's wife... wonder if she is glowing over this news?
She took 2 million dollars out of Gadhafi's son's pocket..... She didn't give him money, she took his. Why is that such a bad thing?
Congrats to Bey & Jay Z, God blessings be upon you all and the new baby that is soon be here.
she was pregnant before she was sasha fierce but i geuss she sacrificed it for fame to the illuminatti you crazy celebs and ur sacrifices to the dark light ...
she was pregnant before she was sasha fierce but i geuss she sacrificed it for fame to the illuminatti you crazy celebs and ur sacrifices and and dark light ...be ready for love to hit this planet
WOW when a CD flops when all the pimping and hype should have made it do GaGa numbers then lets announce I'm pregnant on the VMAs (where is Taylor Swift when you need her hahaha) since people keep saying she should go start a fam being so overexposed and played out. Well now Solange can teach her how to tone it down!!! Plz don't let this baby grow up to be a mindless pop tart or a former drug dealer!!!!
I find it curious that two people who guarded their marriiage so closely, they wouldn;t even wear rings to announce a pregnancy in such a public manner is a bit much. She is begging to be followed by paparatazzi. All the best to the happy family.
Congratulations to them. But I don't see it being a cute kid...
Our worst fears...the baby looks like JayZ....OMG how freaking ugly is that. Beyonce better get ready to get a plastic surgeon for this one. She married the ugliest guy ever and is having his baby. I can imagine how her mother feels...Yuck!
Just what the world needs....another Gangsta'.
Does this mean her ass and thunderthighs will somehow get even bigger?
They'll never get bigger than her lack of talent.
My neighbor is pregnant too.
Normally i don't even bother commenting... But since i saw the Ghadaffi name appearing in the comments here, i feel i must. First of all: congratualtion Beyonce and Jay-Z! What a great news, i am wishing you all the happiness and joy!
Second of all: how come that so much blame is put on Beyonce for performing (!) for that man? I am fed up of listening to it, for the ones who are pointing fingers at her are forgetting the whole picture in the first place. And as a woman myself i am also EXTREMELY annoyed that it is a WOMAN who is being told that 'she must go to jail', et cetera and so forth. And wohoo! Guess what! So far i've only heard these kind of statements coming from men. Bloody shame! We are living in the 21st century, but the mind set of many males on this planet is, alas, still stuck somewhere in the Middle Ages, maybe even earlier.
Beyonce has become an amazing empowerment symbol for many women around the globe. T h a t is n o t an image. That is real. She is LIVING it, she EMBODIES the same principles she presents. She is R E A L. Every woman should consider her a Sister, just as she must consider E V E R Y woman on this planet a Sister, and stand up for her when there is a need.
Overpaid artist, you say? Open your eyes. With all the illegal downloads going on (read: stealing!) i wonder. I am in the music industry myself, and alas, my 'fans' also think that i feed off the rays of sunshine... Do you perhaps, want to exchange places with a star of her magnitude? I dare bet you wouldn't even last a day. What she does is incredible hard work, it's incredibly courageous, it requires an incredible amount of discipline and a grounded and humble character.
She is a joy to look at. I don't even like her music, but i RESPECT her. First as a Soul, then as a human being, and then as a woman. A Sister. A gorgeous, inspirational Sister. Envious haters, stop all this pathetic display and leave this human being alone. Lean to have the capacity of looking BEYOND the tip of your very own nose. And... get a life of your own.
Wonder if this empowered woman feels empowered enough to help the nanny Gadhafi's wife brutally tortured? You think she should do that? Hmmm? Help a sister out? Good luck with that. This chick is all about the money... empowerment be damned.
STFU, your point is too damn long...I couldn't even finish reading it!!!
Woman gets laid. Woman get pregnant. How is this news?
I find it hard to respect a woman who wears a 5-million-dollar wedding ring. Little materialistic are we?
Hating ass!!!!! She can do what she wants with her money. Don't be mad because you can't afford it! Broke ass
I have been reading these comments and all I have to say is, What would the world be without the haters and outright disgustingly mean people that have nothing to do but make up outlandish stories and assumptions all day (get yourself together)... someone announces a proud moment in their life and here comes the hater patrol to try and break down that moment.. Keep this in mind when you’re writing your hateful and mean drivel, both Jay-Z and B could care less. (Believe that!!) Congrats to them and all the best
I hope the baby looks like his/her mom... 😉 Congrats to the happy couple!
WHO ????? BE WHO ????
Hope they have a healthy baby. Many Blessings to them. Congratulations!!! Hope they teach their kid that WOMAN run the worl but don't need to be half way naked to do it either. So talented, great words yet teach double standars.
thats a good one cookie, d worst is dia selling of dem souls to the devil, all dat illuminati stuff, pray God helps dem, dont have no time for all yo replies, will reply to none of dem. She's got gr8 talent, just hope she's not in anyway hooked to the devil, she n her husband...
I'm a happy for her, but dang, I owe so much money out. I bet she would never have a child..dang, dang dang
I"m soooooooo shocked ant still is but @ the same time im happy CONGRATS to both Beyonce and Jay-Z
Wow, haters please get a life. Congratulations to Beyonce and Jay-Z. I wish you the best.
Lay-Z? Beyowsay? That baby gonna look like Horse.
Congrats Beyonce! Motherhood does look good on you!! This is the BEST picture of you I've seen. I mean it!!
Congratulations to Beyonce and Jay Z on being blessed with a new addition to their family. I love them as
@ JD B
I guess you look like a million dollars huh? I'm just saying.....eesh!
I honestly cannot believe some of the vicious comments people are posting. We are talking about a new life, a baby coming into the world and some of you are already calling it ugly. Some of you need to take a second look at your own F****D up lives!
CONGRATULATIONS TO JAY-Z AND BEYONCE!
That ugly orange dress matched her orangutan looking skin perfectly.
Please....please give the kid another dopey celebrity name like.....Convertible or Ming something like that. Im just glad I got to get some of that tail before homey dropped off his baby batter.
I like many of the other "Intelligent" posters on here hope they have a wonderful healthy and happy child and that that child brings them even closer together.....but I also hope the baby looks like Beyonce. JZ is just not the best looking guy on the planet. He has wicked talent....that is true but looks wise....eesh.
It will probably look like that wall-eyed basturd Jesse Jackson cuz he been gettin some uh b thunderthighs.
I hope beyonce doesn't have Jay-Z sign the baby to a record deal @ 1yr old and release a double CD of nursery rhyme raps.
I'm glad she's knocked up – at least we'll get a break from her thrusting pelvic region. Both her and Z are overpaid undertalented.
Alice you are a piece of work! wow I have no words for your terrible comments about people you don't even know, you should be ashamed of yourself.
OMG! I think i want to cry, i'm soooooooo happy for Beyonce and Jay Z. She did everything right, she enjoyed being a young woman, making her OWN money, traveling and enjoying her marraige to him. Age 30 is a good age to have a baby. I wish them both best wishes. CONGRATS!!!!!!
You will cry more when this baby is born because it will look like a squid.
Good for them.. now maybe people will get off her back about it.
It will be an ugly tard baby.
Sad thing is, even though he's a multi-millionaire, Jay-Z will abandon the kid anyway.
I thought it was kinda cute the way she "announced" her pregnancy. They can call it a Bey-be! Did she steal the show, I don't think so. I think the Amy Winehouse tribute was the best! Well, Lady Gaga had me scratching my head, though. That was just plain freaky!
I know how it happened. Beyonce put a bag on Jay-z's head and thought about Justin Beiber.
Yea the same way your moma made you, she placed a Bag over your daddy's head!!!!
Will they raise baby to be luciferian? Will the baby look like ugly Jay-z? eww.
Congrats! children are such a blessing 🙂
She's definitely a diva. Why would you debut your BABY news at a music awards ceremony unless you are trying to steal other people's thunder? It's a personal development that was displayed a public ceremony and it's so tawdry. Get over yourself!
This will be an average looking kid. JayZ is so butt ugly and beyonce is so beautiful that it will cancel out. I just hope the kid doesn't Bumper lips that the father has.
She appeared to want to be the center of attention for the night.
For some reason superstar marriage don't last long.I hope this one does.
Can you believe these guys pulled in over 100 million probably last year? really? Now theyre having a kid? I cant really believe this. Do they really deserve it? This is INSANE !! Oh well 🙂
Its not like the parents will pay attention to the kid after the first 6 months. They'll get a nanny to watch over the kid until its 24.
A lot of wealthy people have children. What's wrong with that...So cunfused.
don't care i hope its a goat
REALLY...WAS THAT THE BEST YOU COULD COME UP WITH.
You are such an Idiot
This may be a first!
Timing your baby so that you can show it off during a major awards show and use the pregnancy as a publicity opportunity.
Stunning. Using a pregnancy as a way to remain relevant. What these hack pop stars these days, I tell ya.
I didnt know that she was pregnant. I just want to congratulate them on being pregnant. I pray that she will have a safe delivery! Its about time that she settled down and have kids any way. I'm truly happy for her.
This is great new!!! Beyonce looked great.
Congratulations to a beautiful couple.
Congratulations,what a beautiful momma to be.
Dat baby prolly pop out and say "All you bytches and all you ho's" then begin running around like ALIEN and be twiced as ugly.
A MONEY MAKING CAREER IS BIG...BUT HAVING A BABY IS "THE BIG ONE"
MONEY GO AND COME.....A BABY ONE DAY, ADULT THE NEXT.....
THE KIND OF ADULT DEPENDS ON THE TRAINING......
I will be here if she has a daughter that looks like Jay-Z.
The only relevant reply in this whole thread
I feel bad for saying this, but your coment is sooo funny!
oh noes, poor poor Jay-Z!!!! He has 100 problems now
Funniest comment on here 🙂
oh noes, poor poor Jay-Z!!!! He has 100 problems now

I heard she gets 5 million for every baby she has. Now that's a good business!
I am very happy for both Beyonce & Jay-Z they are married and are obviously happy. I'm very happy because this is a black couple for one. And their on the right track. This is a black women that has prepared for herself as a lady first by having a successful career first then getting a husband that is too independent and now deciding to become a mother this to me is a blessed union and a great example of what we need to see more black women be. This is just another example of her success as a lady. I'm very proud of her. And I wish them nothing but the best. Congratulations girl for a job well done.
"Blessed union?!" Blessed by whom? They make it fairly obvious through lyrics, actions, symbology and associations that they are deeply luciferian. They're about as blessed a union as Charles Manson and Candy Stevens.
kabito. I bet you're glad you can hide behind that monitor of yours! Well, Beyonce always said that she'd have her baby by the age of 30. Congrats to them.
Hey guys, will you visit ..... Help Faye . ORG ....... a friend of mine is Fighting for her life.... Thanks
Why did you bring Angelina Jolie up?
We all saw this coming! I wish them the best. And a healthy baby and they are amazing artist! Best wishes!
Who really cares like seriously?! I mean the babys a blessing but the baby is gonna come out lookin like its 17! Jay-z is like 53 lol not hating just tired of them those to are made out to be so awsome and they're not! Member the show they had in like july?! Lol gigity!
what a skeezer
Hope the baby likes sequins! Ha!
Guess its a crime to be happy for someone, smh at the hate, apparently its taken over this persons soul.
I wish them well. Just as well as I wish my own daughter when I found out she was pregnant last week. Health and happiness to Jay and Beyonce. They seem to be happy together and I hope they are.
Congratulations, so very' Happy about the the new addition both deserve the Best!.
Oh great. Just what we need. Another celebrity baby.
Congratulation to both greatful couples for the new born baby.
OMG! What amazing and unique news – a woman whose reproductive organs work. Will wonders never cease?
This baby will look like a wharf-rat.
I'm so happy for them!!! Jay-Z had a smile on his face from ear to ear. Awesome moment!!!
Congrats to them! All the haters need to get a life.
Worshippers needs to get a life too...
"Haters" is not a word. Learn to speak English please.
Or whatever your name is. You been been asked several tmes to go away with your negative self.
Beyonce sold her soul entertaining Gadhafi's son who tortures people as with his wife, throwing boiling water on their servants, nice,
Wasn't the first time she sold her soul, Dan. I hope their baby can grow up independent minded and not fall into the darkness the two of them have embraced. One has to be seriously blinded to not see how obsessed the two of them are with the "dark side".
TO YOU AND WHOM EVER REPONSES IN AGREEMENT....DO YOU KNOW THEM PERSONALLY???
I THOUGHT NOT....GET A LIFE!!!
Congratulate to Beyonce and Jay-Z. You are going to be the best parents ever to this beautiful angel.
STFU!!! How do you know that baby will be a "beautiful angel"? and how do you know that they will be great parents? All you people saying s#it like, 'oh Beyonce and Jay-Z, I am so happy for you, I wish you all the best,bla, bla, bla....you all just sound like a bunch of a$$ kissers.....They don't give a flying f%ck what you think about them, good or bad... That's what they have their money for...If that baby looks like Jay-Z or X or W, whatever it is, it will be one ugly MF>>>
Congratulations to both of them. If you listened to her closely you could tell. I wish them well and a very healthy pregnancy
Good! The world needs a break from her crappy stolen music and bad singing..
LMAO – very true... this will shut her overexposed, Gadafi-lovin' a $ $ up for a couple of months
PLEASE...if it was JLO or those annoying Kardashians it would be okay. Guess she's the wroing shade.
And we need a break from you
ha...omg how many years can Beyonce be 29? She's at least 34.
You obviously know nothing...go THAT WAY!!!
WOW!!!!listen at all the sorry haters....are you that ssad and unhappy with your own lives. You would take time to bash the happy couple....check yo-self people
Actually, I'm sad for you b/c you are such a celebrity worshipping sheep who needs to find happiness in the lives of people you don't know at all... very pathetic
Pedro get a life! If this story is "soooo stupid," then you must be monumentally stupid to be on here commenting. Get over yourself and go away.
And yes, I am a vapid, celebrity-loving tool and proud of it!
Great news,I wish the Jay-z and Beyonce family all the best.
Beyonce announces her pregnancy. Intuitive Scoop listeners already knew of her forth coming 1st pregnancy back in Dec 2010. Listen again here:
Well, she got one of her predictions right, yay! I guess we can congratulate her on calling Hefner's engagement a crock too, though basically everyone knew that. What gets me though, is she's bold enough to go out on a limb and say there's going to be a major CA earthquake. This Barb person is as talented as Beyonce and the self-styled "Jehova"-Z!
Meh - she and Jay-Z are both annoying, so who really cares?
You do cuz u read the post. Moron!!
Obiviously you do...idiot
your life is clearly a sad, desolate one. get some hobbies.
Pedro, Your angry insecurity just makes you look as stupid as you apparently are. Bet you like to pull the wings from flies, too.
You are so sad and lonely. This type of behavior is need for concern when we cannot rejoice in others happiness. Pleae don't send the rest of your life in this miserable state of mind.
i think they should name the baby Ethiopia, congra to both.
I agree, they better call him ETHIOPIA
I'm happy for her. I hope motherhood will tone down the over the top, cheesy diva image and make her come off as more of a real human being, with better music material that shows off her voice without resorting to the shouting and hollering. You can tell that she's GLOWING.
Thank you X, you said it for me, Beyonce is good and talented and hard working and ALL THAT, but she seems to take it too serious that image of over the top cheesy diva, there is nothing really interesting to read about her.
WHO GIVES A CRAP!?,.. NOT ME AND MANY OTHERS
i suppose the image you portray is better than that of beyonce? who are you to pass judgment on this talented woman who handles fame better than you probably ever could. she has done everything in her career with grace and class, and should be commended for being a positive influence on her fans. she promotes success and respect. reevaluate yourself before commenting on the lives of others, especially those whom youve never met and are blindly judging.
congrats B and Hov.. Dynasty continues!
You are right, she is glowing. It is a good look on her. Congratulations to the couple.
Get over it x. Here kid will be a diva too. It's in the genes. So get ready and stay out of others business.
Trailer trash devils, no shoe wearing, felines. And you know who I'm speaking of.
I hope it looks like "B".
I hope it looks like the milkman
no offense. i hope your looks like your neighbor..
I am so happy for them! Congratulations Bey and Jay!
@david burns: You seem to be in need of a recent-history lesson on Libya. Firstly, Beyonce donated the proceeds of the concert to help thousands of Haitians. Second, as recently as 2008 and it's not hard to see all of 2009 as well, the US and Libya were on extremely friendly terms. Would you like to see the US Embassy's guide to doing business with Libya dated 2008? It won't help you now, but it helped many American businesses engage in commerce with the country. Ever since the US removed Libya from its list of state sponsors of Terrorism, things have been going very smoothly. It was only once the violent crackdowns on protests in the country in the last year or so that the US once again began treating Libya with hostility. So you see (google "libya us 2008" if it's still not apparent enough) your perspective exists only because you are judging events in 2009 based on events that have occurred since then. Have a nice day.
really so you think that the gadhafi boys were angels and saints only till a few months ago? From what i read she only donated the money she got paid AFTER the story broke about here performing for them. She is going it as damage control. Celebs dont care who they perform for its all about the money.
Congrats to them both!
What most folks seem to forget on the surface, she is an ENTERTAINER. "Image" is part of the package. But the glow (that is a VERY real by the way) is NOT part of IMAGE. It's her and now it's THEM. Leave the woman and now the family ALONE.
The baby is going to be beautiful! Congratulations to the happy couple!
The baby is going to be beautiful! Congratulations to the happy couple!
GTFOH, celebrities don't go, "Gee I want to do a concert for this crazy dictator!" They have managers who come up to them and say, 'Hey, this guy's going to pay $1 million for you to perform- be there.' She probably didn't even know anything about him or who he was- hell, I didn't know who he was before the news started talking about him! Get a grip, get a life, and get OVER it.
I will say this she wears motherhood well! But seriously she is having a baby so unless it is going to come out dancing and rapping from birth its no biggie!
I just hope its not a girl who looks like her father. Pray for a boy!
I'm a girl from hunan,China.Beyonce is a perfect star in my heart.Above all,I really worship her glorious voice and I sing Beyonce'songs at every seconds.I love Beyonce forever ! (If you have QQ,I'm glad to make friends with you.My QQ:274132325)
