The MTV Video Music Awards is known for its outrageous moments -- Britney Spears with a snake, Madonna kissing Britney Spears, Britney Spears making her comeback -- generally anything with Britney Spears. But on the night Spears received the lifetime achievement award (at age 29), she was overshadowed by Beyonce and her shocking pregnancy announcement.
While walking the red carpet in Los Angeles Sunday night, Beyonce told the panting media, "I have a surprise," and clutched her baby bump.
This is the first child for Beyonce and her equally famous musical husband, Jay Z. But proving impending motherhood will not slow her down, Beyonce later got on stage to perform. After the song she revealed her bump to the audience, much to the delight of the proud papa-to-be and his pal Kanye West, who slapped him on the back.
