(LOS ANGELES) -- Beyonce Knowles was determined to have a baby by the time she was 30 and the singer has gotten her wish. She shared her baby bump with the world at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night.
A spokesperson for Knowles, who turns 30 in September, confirmed to ABC News that the star is indeed with child.
"I always said I would have a baby at 30," Knowles told CNN in June, likely knowing she was expecting.
She also said, "I was going to retire at 30."
The bombshell at the awards show comes ironically with her latest single, "1+1."
After completing her performance at the award's show she rubbed her belly as the camera cut to hubby Jay-Z sitting in the audience.
"I want you to feel the love that's growing inside me," Knowles said during the performance.
Earlier this year she told InStyle that she is now "a woman, and because I gave it all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children."
It is the first child for Beyonce and the 41-year-old Jay Z. They have been married since 2008.
