Pregnant Beyonce flaunts baby bump, Jay-Z jumps for joy [Video]
Beyonce's red-carpet baby bump tipped off the world to her pregnancy -- but her performance at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards let her shout her joy from the rooftops Sunday night.
Clad in a sparkly Dolce & Gabanna tuxedo jacket with elastic-waist suit pants (let the fabulous maternity wear begin), she asked the audience to "celebrate the love that's growing inside of me" and then belted a new track, "Love on Top."
After her crooning, Beyonce unveiled her baby-on-board to the world by tossing her microphone, popping open her jacket and rubbing the bun in the oven that's bound for her and Jay-Z's household.
"I have known for quite a while," Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland told People on Sunday night, "and she's happy, and Jay is happy, and that's all that counts."
Speaking of Papa Jay, he and pal Kanye West lost their minds over the revelation, jumping for joy in the audience as Beyonce accepted audience adoration. Check it out, below.
