When Beyonce revealed her baby bump for the first time during her MTV VMA performance of “Love on Top” last night, the crowd went wild and it seems the excitement continued backstage.

Bey returned to her dressing room and was greeted by applause and congratulations from her hubby Jay-Z and close friends and former Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, reports Bossip. Kanye West rushed backstage asking everyone “Where’s Beyonce?”

“I’m free,” Beyonce, who’s said to be three months along in her pregnancy, said as she started hugging and thanking well wishers. “We’re all free.”

Rumor has it the parents-to-be had planned to keep their secret a little while longer, but Beyonce, beaming with baby joy, just couldn’t keep it in. First time dad Jay-Z is pretty excited too.

“Jay is ecstatic and over the moon,” and insider tells Us Weekly. “He really wanted this so badly.”

Now news yet on whether the king of rap and Queen B will have a little prince or princess, but we’ll let you know when we find out.
