2011 MTV VMAs: Beyonce Knowles announces first pregnancy

She's expecting...

There was one moment at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards worth celebrating, and it actually had nothing to do with the music itself.

While on the show’s famous black carpet, Beyonce Knowles revealed that she and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child together. The two have been married since April 2008, and the singer has said on a number of occasions that she wanted to be pregnant before she was 30 years old. (Thankfully, she is only 29 so her goal is achieved.)

Jay-Z and Kanye West were the “surprise performers” of the night during the VMAs, as the two came out to perform the song “Otis” from their “Watch the Throne” collaborative album. Beyonce, meanwhile, has been busy as of late promoting her new album “4,” which includes such songs as “Girls (Run the World)” and “1+1.”

Are you happy for Beyonce?
