Singer having her first baby with husband Jay-Z

Beyoncé Knowles has revealed that she’s pregnant with her first child.

‘I have a surprise!’ Beyoncé declared, showing her baby bump under her Lanvin gown on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend.

Beyoncé, 29, changed into a purple blazer and black Dolce
& Gabbana trousers for her performance of Love On Top and told the audience: ‘I want you to feel the love
that’s growing inside of me.’

Husband Jay-Z, 41, was congratulated by friend Kanye West, who slapped him on the back.

Beyoncé admitted in a recent interview that her priorities have changed since her marriage in 2008 – her career is not so important.

‘When you’re young – 18 or 19 – you have the energy and drive,’ she explained.

‘That’s the time to work as hard as you can.

‘Now I’m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage.’

Beyoncé, who co-designs fashion line House of Deréon with mother Tina Knowles, intends to be a hands-on mum.

‘I can decide I want to have kids,’ she told InStyle.

‘I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.’
