Washington: Beyonce Knowles, who was determined to have a baby by the time she was 30, announced that she was pregnant with her first child at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The ‘Single Ladies’ singer, who ironically sang her latest single “1+1” at the awards show, was spotted rubbing her belly after completing the performance, as the camera cut to husband Jay-Z sitting in the audience.

“I want you to feel the love that``s growing inside me,” ABC News quoted Knowles, who turns 30 next month, as saying during the performance.

The singer, who earlier admitted that she wanted a baby before 30, even posed for snaps clutching on her burgeoning belly.

“OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!” MTV tweeted.

A spokesperson for Beyonce confirmed to ABCNews.com that the star is indeed with child.
