Beyonce appears at MTV awards looking pregnant

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - R&B singer Beyonce let pictures tell the story of a baby on the way for her and rapper husband Jay-Z at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, appearing before photographers and outlining a baby bump under her long gown.

The singer appeared visibly pregnant on the red carpet at the widely-watched show where MTV gives out awards for best videos. Wearing a loose-fitting dress, she showed off her expanded waistline and used her hands to frame a baby bump. But she did not talk with reporters, leaving only eyewitness accounts and photographs for confirmation.

Beyonce, whose hits include "Beautiful Liar" and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it), is vying for MTV's Best Female Video award with "Run the World (Girls)."

She and rapper Jay-Z began dating in 2002 and were married in April 2008. For years, her many fans and the media have speculated about whether and when they might have a baby. It appears they won't have to wait much longer.
