Beyonce Knowles made a big announcement on the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awards: She’s pregnant with what will be the first child for her and husband Jay-Z.

Though no official confirmation or statement has been made to EW, the singer flaunted her bump for photographers, telling them “I have a surprise for you guys,” before posing for them. MTV also tweeted the news, writing “OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!”

Beyonce and Jay-Z have been married since 2008.

UPDATE: As she began her performance of “Love on Top” on the VMAs, Beyonce said to the crowd, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.” After her performance, she dropped her mic, unbuttoned her coat, and rubbed her belly, while Kanye West congratulated a beaming Jay-Z in the audience.
