Music legend Stevie Wonder showed Beyonce some birthday love at a weekend concert.
Beyoncé was serenaded by a music legend for her birthday. Even though she was not present, the one and only Stevie Wonder dedicated his classic "Happy Birthday" to the pop superstar in honor of turning 30. It was also Stevie's son Kailand's birthday. He brought him on stage to blow out the candles on his cake during the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival in the Caribbean last night. With so many accomplishments and a baby on the way, B has a lot to celebrate this year. Happy birthday! (Rap-Up)
Outside of birthday wishes, Bey officially revealed being pregnant at last month's Video Music Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
B's got a bump! Superstar singer Beyonce dropped a red-carpet bombshell tonight when she suddenly announced that she's pregnant at an awards show. Beyonce, 29, dropped the news by cradling her stomach on the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards as photographers snapped away. Her rep told The Post she was "happy to confirm" the singer is indeed pregnant. It's the first child for the chart-topper, who is married to rapper Jay-Z. (New York Post)
Following the unexpected news, Jay-Z's Roc Nation protege J. Cole gave his reaction.
"Somebody was like 'Beyonce pregnant?!' Then they showed the photo of her, I guess on the carpet with her hands on her stomach showing her baby bump. It was just instant smiles and instant disbelief or whatever but I was just telling somebody it feel like the whole world is having a baby right now. That's how ill it is," Cole said. "Not only are they huge celebrities but I feel like they did it right. They carried themselves in the public light right, they represent black people, right, correctly. So it's like the only thing we've seen like that is Will and Jada [Smith] but even they're a little more relevant to us, like immediately more relevant to our generation at least my generation so that's why it feels so important."
