Perhaps the biggest star of the 2011 MTV VMAs was one that hasn't even been born yet.
Beyonce, looking stunning in a flowing floor-length orange dress, shocked the world as she gave photographers a preview of her baby bump on the pre-VMA show 'black carpet.'
It was a moment that was not televised, but it didn't take long before social media started spreading the exciting baby news.
Beyonce posed for photos while smiling and holding her hands around her protruding stomach, and the pregnancy rumors finally seemed to be put to rest - especially after MTV tweeted a photo (shown below) to prove it.
It was just a matter of moments before "BEYONCE IS PREGNANT" became a trending topic on Twitter.
The VMAs had yet to start and the buzz about Beyonce and Jay-Z's first child reached an all-time high.
And if the pre-VMA photos - that were spreading like wildfire on Twitter - weren't enough, Beyonce made it official following her powerful award show performance of 'Love on Top.'
The superstar singer - a week away from her 30th birthday - confidently tossed down the microphone, unbuttoned her purple sequined tuxedo jacket and posed with her hands her hips to let the world know she is indeed expecting.
To top it off, she gently rubbed her stomach several times with her right hand, instantly making it the belly rub heard 'round the world.
The first ever award show pregnancy announcement was met with wild cheers, and MTV cameras caught the reaction from father-to-be Jay-Z, who was congratulated in very brotherly fashion by Kanye West.
Now, what does all of this mean??
Well, it means...
-Beyonce will not be going on tour any time soon.
-We'll have to put up with constant speculation about the baby name and gender.
-Her young nephew will be taking a backseat to this new bundle of joy. Sorry, Juelz. No more award show spots for you.
- Offers to take photos of Beyonce's belly for a magazine cover will be pouring in.
-Someone will probably make a BeyonceJayZBaby Twitter handle.
-Kanye West will begin shopping for gifts to spoil his new 'nephew.' First items to purchase: red hot baby pants and gold chains.
-No one will care about photos of Michael Jackson's strange kids anymore. This newcomer is getting all the attention.
-TMZ and MediaTakeOut will be trying to outdo each other by obtaining sonograms of Bey and Jay's first child.
-Lastly, it means the baby could be born in April, which would be interesting considering Beyonce's endless connection to the number 4. (this could change depending on when the baby was conceived - but it seems April is a top candidate)
Note: Beyonce's birthday is 9/4. Jay-Z's birthday is 12/4. And her mother, Tina Knowles, birthday is 1/4. Beyonce and Jay-Z were married on 4/4. Beyonce's album is titled, '4.'
