Beyoncé announced her pregnancy while performing at the Video Music Awards on Sunday, telling the audience: "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside me."
A friend of Beyoncé has now insisted that the 'Love on Top' musician is "three months along" and looking forward to becoming a mother.
The source claimed that Jay-Z is also extremely excited, saying to Us Weekly: "Jay is ecstatic and over the moon. He really wanted this so badly."
Jay-Z and Beyoncé had apparently originally planned to keep the pregnancy secret, but the singer ultimately decided that the VMAs was the perfect venue to reveal her happy news.
"They barely told anyone...They kept it really secret until they were sure and now she simply couldn't wait to tell the world," the insider added.
Beyoncé took home the 'Best Choreography' Video Music Award for 'Run the World (Girls)' during Sunday night's ceremony.
