According to an industry insider, the buzz behind the scenes at the 2011 MTV VMAs, where Beyonce revealed a growing baby bump and announced her pregnancy, was that Beyonce was wearing a prosthetic pregnant belly!
MediaTakeOut's source claims that while Beyonce is, in fact, pregnant, she is not in her second trimester as previous reports stated, and as the size of her stomach may have suggested. Allegedly Beyonce is only a little more than eight-weeks pregnant.
The website provides before-and-after photos of Beyonce at the VMAs, and images snapped by the paparazzi just a week before, featuring B barely showing any signs of a protruding pregnant belly.
The insider claimed, "She wanted the announcement to be dramatic, so she made sure she had a baby bump."
