Pregnant Beyonce Knowles Performing 2011 VMA Video

Relive the Moment Beyoncé Announced Her First Pregnancy at the 2011 VMAs

Beyoncé made the internet, her fans, and celebrities freak out on Wednesday when she announced that she's expecting twins with husband Jay Z. While we already can't wait to meet the two little American royals (because that's what they are), we also immediately thought back to her first pregnancy announcement. The year was 2011, and the iconic moment came at MTV's Video Music Awards. After first revealing her pregnancy on the red carpet, she showed off her bump again during her performance of "Love on Top." After perfectly belting out the song, Beyoncé dropped her mic and unbuttoned her jacket to rub her belly. Kanye West then excitedly grabbed Jay in celebration. Beyoncé went on to welcome daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012, and we've been spoiled with so many cute family moments since then. If you want the chills, watch the whole thing again above.

I am happy for them, but she is such a diva and juvenile. It's so pretentious to announce a pregnancy and steal everyone else's thunder at an awards show.

She did an amazing job with the singing. Of course Jay-Z knew she's pregnant. Kanye didn't know and he just seemed happy for her. I just don't get the whole throwing the mick on the floor thing.

Great news and happy for them but....sources are saying she is about 3 months along....I don't think so. I am almost 5 months and with my second and showing as much as she is so I think they are trying to say she isn't as far along so that people aren't up their ass around the due date.

Wait, did Jay-Z not know about her pregnancy before this moment? Either way, congrats to the happy couple!

Her look is too tranny for my taste but her voice is, as always, great (even if the song is absolutely super-boring!)
