On the red carpet prior to the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, Beyoncé told photographers that she's pregnant. (A representative later confirmed the news to Us Weekly.) Later in the show, she performed an energetic rendition of her song "Love on Top" – and rubbed her belly at the end.
The singer, who's been married to Jay-Z for three years, had said on the June 27th broadcast of Piers Morgan Tonight that she always said she'd have a baby at age 30 – and she turns 30 on September 4th. No word yet on when she's due.
