Beyonce’s Baby Joy!
When Beyonce announced that she was taking a year off, ‘to protect her mental health’ the rumour mill went into overdrive that the gorgeous singer was actually planning to start a family with husband Jay-Z. And, it looks like her 12-month sabbatical from the spotlight has paid off! Revealing her ‘secret’ to a gaggle of the world’s press on the MTV VMA red carpet, Beyonce announced that she is expecting her first child with her rap megastar hubby.
Proudly showing off her new bump in a flowing, one shouldered orange Lanvin gown, the 29-year-old then changed into a glittering Dolce & Gabbana tux for an energetic performance of Love on Top. Receiving a standing ovation from the celeb packed crowd, which included her beaming husband, a glowing Beyonce proudly ripped open her sequinned jacket, rubbed her rounded tummy and shouted, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me!” The announcement comes after a stellar summer for the Grammy-winner in which she headlined Glastonbury and released another hit album, 4. Recently revealing she felt she had achieved enough in her career to settle down and make family a priority, the singer spilled, “When you’re young, that’s the time to work as hard as you can. ‘Now I’m a woman, I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.’ Congrats, Beyonce and Jay!
