What a great way for Mr. and Mrs. Carter to ring in the New Year!
While introducing a performance by Beyoncé for Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve 2012 on ABC, co-host Ryan Seacrest announced that Beyoncé would not be performing live, with a great excuse: "Obviously, Beyoncé couldn't be here tonight because she's about to give birth to her first child."
The show did air a pre-recorded performance of "I Was Here" that Beyoncé did in London.
Of course, the rumor mill has been on overdrive for days, with some unconfirmed reports saying that she'd already given birth to a girl named Tiana-May Carter. We'll provide more details as they come in.
Meanwhile, take a trip down memory lane to the near past, when Beyoncé proudly debuted her baby bump at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in August.
