New York: Jay-Z, who wanted a baby ‘badly’, is said to be ‘ecstatic’ over wife Beyonce’s first pregnancy news.

“Jay is ecstatic and over the moon. He really wanted this so badly,” the New York Daily News quoted a source, close to Beyonce and Jay-Z, as telling Usmagazine.com.

The source also said that though the ‘1+1’ singer revealed about her pregnancy publicly at MTV’s Video Music Awards, she originally wanted to keep it a secret for some time.

“She wasn’t going to announce it, but she is so excited she couldn’t hold it in,” the source added.
