Pregnant Beyonce Knowles Turns 30 Today

The Grammy-winning singer and actress Beyonce Knowles fetes her 30th birthday today - and she's already gotten the best gift ever.

Beyonce teasingly told CNN's Piers Morgan, in late June, 'I always said I would have a baby at 30'.

And what Beyonce wants, Beyonce gets! In an instantly iconic moment, the superstar confirmed her pregnancy onstage at last Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, unbuttoning her sequined jacket at the end of a performance to rub her baby bump with a joyous, mischievous smile.

'Beyonce wasn't going to announce it, but she is so excited she couldn't hold it in', a pal says.

It's the first child for Beyonce and Jay-Z, her husband of three years. Her rapper-mogul man, 41, couldn't be more thrilled, insiders told Us.

'He wanted this to badly', the pal says. To that end, the hip-hop legend has been so supportive, rubbing her feet, making sure she's okay.

Beyonce's Destiny's Child mate and lifelong friend Kelly Rowland added: 'Beyonce is happy, and Jay-Z is happy. That is all that counts!'
