Beyonce's Baby Bump
Beyonce is a vision in red at VMAs!
Beyonce Knowles broke the news Sunday night at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards that she and hubby Jay-Z are expecting a baby, which makes the rapper’s track “New Day” all the more special. 

Jay-Z and Kanye West’s new album Watch the Throne features the song that was written for their future children. Jay’s lyrics read:

I just wanna take ya to a barber
Bondin’ on charters, all the sh*# that I never did
Teach ya good values, so you cherish it
Took me 26 years to find my path
My only job is cuttin’ the time in half
So at 13 we’ll have our first drink together
Black bar mitzvahs, mazel tov, mogul talk

Beyonce performed her song “Love on Top” at the VMAs and following the performance revealed her baby bump to a cheering crowd and an emotional Jay-Z. 

In Jay’s tribute to his future son or daughter, he raps:

Look a man dead in his eyes
So he know you talk truth when you speak it, give your word, keep it
And if the day comes I only see him on the weekend
I just pray we was in love on the night that we conceived him
Promise to never leave him even if his mama tweakin’
Cause my dad left me and I promise never repeat him
Never repeat him, never repeat him
