It’s official: Beyonce and Jay-Z are going to be parents! The 30-year-old singer confirmed the news on the MTV VMAs black carpet Sunday night.
“OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!” MTV tweeted along with a photo of Beyonce clutching her stomach.
Beyonce pregnancy rumors have dogged the couple since they married in April 2008, including a huge rumor last fall that turned out to be false.
“I always said I’d have a baby at 30,” she told CNN’s Piers Morgan earlier this summer. “I’m 29. But I also said I was going to retire at 30. I’m not retiring.”
Well, it looks like her preggo-at-30 dream is coming true.
“I feel like a woman,” she revealed. “I feel like I’m very aware of who I am. I feel great and I feel like 30 is the ideal age [to start a family], because you’re mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and your standards, and not be afraid, too polite — but you’re young enough to be a young woman,” she said. “I’m so looking forward to it.”
Boy or girl, the Beyonce and Jay-Z baby is bound to be super talented.
