Beyonce Knowles seems to be officially pregnant!

In a shocking turn of events, the 29-year-old singer debuted (what appeared to be) her baby bump on the Video Music Awards red carpet on Sunday. Twitter blew up with the news that she told the waiting paparazzi that she is expecting her first child, and now JustJared is confirming that Beyonce is indeed pregnant. B’s rep then confirmed to People, saying: “”I’m happy to say it’s true.”

MTV broke the news, tweeting: “OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!”

Recently, Beyonce said that she had hoped to be pregnant before her 30th birthday, which is just a few weeks away in September. She told Piers Morgan on CNN in late July:

“I always said I’d have a baby at 30,” she said. “I’m 29. But I also said I was going to retire at 30. I’m not retiring … I feel great and I feel like 30 is the ideal age, because you’re mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and your standards, and not be afraid, too polite — but you’re young enough to be a young woman.”

If true, big, big congrats to BK and her hubby Jay-Z!
