Pregnant Beyonce Celebrates Her Birthday with Jay Z in Italy

If anyone knows how to celebrate their birthday in style, it’s Beyonce. Queen B spent her 30th birthday with her hubby Jay Z and close friend Gwyneth Paltrow in Venice, Italy.

Gwyneth is in Venice to promote her new movie ‘Contagion’ alongside Matt Damon, so she both joined Beyonce and Jay on a luxury yacht for B’s birthday. How convenient. Ah, rich people. ‘I just happened to in Venice and omg there’s Beyonce, so we joined them on their gazillion dollar yacht.’

Beyonce spent most of her 30th birthday sunbathing on the top deck of the yacht. Is that ok for pregnant women?

On Saturday night Beyonce was spotted leaving her hotel room rocking her natural curls and a multi-print maxi dress that hid her growing bump. The couple had dinner at "one of the city's most celebrated restaurants," according to People magazine via. foreign press reports.

Queen B announced that she’s preggers at the MTV VMA’s just last week, setting a record on Twitter for TPS (tweets per second). She showed up on the carpet and told photographers, “I have a surprise for you,” and showed off her beautiful baby bump.

During her VMA performance of ‘Love on Top’ she told the crowd, "I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that's growing inside me."

Earlier this year, Beyonce spoke of her desire to settle down into being a wife and mother.

She said: "When you're young - 18 or 19 - you have the energy and drive. That's the time to work as hard as you can.

Back in June, Beyonce told Piers Morgan she was looking forward to turning the big 3-0.

"I feel like a woman," the singer told Morgan. "I feel like I'm very aware of who I am. I feel great and I feel like 30 is the ideal age, because you're mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and your standards, and not be afraid, too polite, but you're young enough to be a young woman. I'm so looking forward to it."

Beyonce also hinted that she was ready to start a family, adding "I always said I'd have a baby at 30."

She’s already accomplished more as a 30 year old than most of us will in our entire lives, so if anyone can use a little time off to enjoy life, it’s Beyonce. Happy birthday B!
