Beyonce Knowles - Beyonce Shows Off Baby Bump At The Mtv Video Music Awards

Beyonce is expecting her first baby with husband Jay Z.
The pop superstar stunned photographers, fans and the press at the Mtv Video Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (28Aug11) by cradling her stomach and showing off a baby bump as she posed for red carpet photos in a flowing red gown.
The gossip sites and blogs went into overdrive as photos of the magical moment shot around the globe via the Internet and her representative confirmed to People.com, "I'm happy to say it's true."
And Beyonce spoke of her pregnancy happiness as she began her joyful and energetic performance of Love On Top during the ceremony, telling the audience at the Nokia Theatre, "I want you to stand up on your feet, I want you to to feel the love that's growing inside of me."
As the track ended, Beyonce dropped her microphone to the floor, unbuttoned her shimmering purple jacket and rubbed her baby belly through high-waisted black trousers, laughing uncontrollably.
Cameras at the Nokia immediately shot to delighted rapper Jay Z in the front row, who soaked up the applause with his pregnant wife.
Following Beyonce's baby reveal, several stars took to their Twitter.com accounts to congratulate the star and her husband.
Beyonce's former Destiny's Child bandmate LeToya Luckett was among the first celebrities to send congratulations to the pop superstar. She tweeted, "Wow!! In tears!! Congrat's Bey & Jay!", while Jordin Sparks added, "Omg Bey is pregnant. I just squealed!!!"
Pregnant Spice Girls star Melanie Brown also took a moment to offer her thoughts, tweeting, "I love the fact Beyonce just announced she is pregnant, on her own terms, girlpower, love her!!!"
Glee actress Jenna Ushkowitz declared, "Beyonce - Preggo and still in Heels.. #respect."
