A record 8,868 Tweets were sent every second following Beyonce Knowles pregnancy revelation at Sunday's MTV VMAs. Wow.
Bey officially confirmed the happy news on stage, announcing, “I want you to feel the love that's growing inside me.” Meanwhile, proud husband Jay-Z was shown being congratulated by Kanye West as they sat watching in the audience. Beyonce’s pregnancy coincides with her latest, aptly named, single 1+1. This is the first child for Jay Z, 41, and Beyonce, 29, who's made no secret of her desire for children in the past.
Former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland says that she thinks Beyonce will be an "incredible mother". Meanwhile, it has been suggested that Clint Eastwood’s film A Star Is Born, which Beyonce is due to star in, will now be delayed.
The previous record for number of tweets sent came after Japan's victory over the USA in the women’s World Cup in July, with 7,196 tweets being sent every second.
