When her live performance finished, she unbuttoned her purple-sequined Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo jacket and rubbed her baby bump, announcing her pregnancy to the world. “I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me.” she said.
The “Crazy in Love” singer in a draping Lanvin caftan placed her hands on her swelling belly as posing for photos pregnant on the MTV VMA black carpet, and confirmed that she is pregnant.

Beyonce and Jay-Z got married in 2008 in a private ceremony at Jay-Z’s New York apartment and planned on pregnancy by the time she was 30. The singer turns 30 on September 4, 2011.
“I always said I would have a baby at 30. 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 or too polite, but young enough to be a young woman. I'm so looking forward to it.” she said in June.
