Beyonce made a huge announcement yesterday…she is preggers in case you didn’t get the memo and the baby is already affecting her work, but its ok! Beyonce was slated to star in the remake, A Star is Born, but production will be moved back to accommodate her plus the movie lost Leonardo DiCaprio so they are still looking for their leading man!
According to Deadline,
Warner Bros was hoping to start production on Clint Eastwoodâ€™s musical remake of A Star Is Born as early as February 2012. But now insiders tell me it â€œcould pushâ€ because BeyoncÃ© announced her pregnancy tonight at MTVâ€™s VMAs. That will give the studio more time to settle on a male co-star for the singer/actress since Eastwoodâ€™s first choice, Leonardo DiCaprio, isnâ€™t doing the pic. (Clint used his time with Leo on the studioâ€™s J Edgar Hoover biopic to discuss A Star Is Born.) The project, which has been at WB for several years, has generated talk of pairing BeyoncÃ© with Will Smith and with Christian Bale and with lots of other leading men. BeyoncÃ© and Jay-Z wed in April 2008: heâ€™s a good actor so I say give him the role. Clint is producing through Malpaso as well as helming the script by Will Fetters. Producers are Billy Gerber and Basil Iwanyk and Jon Peters (who made the infamous 1976 version with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson).
Beyonce made a bold and public performance and reveal at the VMAs (video above). After singing ‘Love on Top’ Beyonce dropped her microphone,Â unbuttonedÂ her blazer and showed off her round bump.
“She’s close to three months along,” an insider close to the music supercouple tells Us of the normally private star. “She wasn’t going to announce it but she is so excited she couldn’t hold it in.”
And the first-time dad Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter), 41, is just as pumped. “Jay is ecstatic and over the moon,” the insider says. “He really wanted this so badly.”
So far, the Grammy-winning duo haven’t found out the gender of their first child — and are keeping other details close to the vest. “They barely told anyone…They kept it really secret until they were sure,” the pal explains, “and now she simply couldn’t wait to tell the world!”
I can’t wait to see all of Beyonce’s pregnancy fashions!
