Beyoncé tells the world via the press, “I have a surprise!” as she strokes her visible bump at the MTV Video Music Awards. Yes Beyoncé really is pregnant this time. After performing her song Love on Top to a standing ovation she showed off her considerable baby bump to the audience.
Husband Jay Z beamed with smiles as fellow music artist and friend Kanye West jumped up and down with sheer excitement for his pal and father-to-be. The pictures of Jay Z make him look human as he actually smiles for once, something rarely seen on the man who only rose to the top after the true elite of hip hop met their untimely deaths, Notorious B.I.G. (Biggie Smalls) aged 24 and Tupac aged 25.
Jay Z and Beyoncé reportedly married on September 4th, 2008. No pictures nor evidence have ever been revealed so it can only be assumed that it was an extremely private affair. She had initially planned to get pregnant at age thirty but she is now 29. Thirty was also supposed to be the age at which she would retire but she told Piers Morgan that she has absolutely no idea now when she would retire and it certainly would not be at thirty.
Beyoncé now feels she has had a successful enough career to take time out to have a family with husband Jay Z.
