Beyoncé Confirms What EPT Already Knows: She's Pregnant

After clutching her bump and coyly smiling on the red carpet — silently signaling to the world that she was either pregnant or bloated from hookworm — Beyoncé hit the stage at the VMAs and, before performing "Love on Top," said to the audience, "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me." HINT HINT.
