Expectant mama Beyoncé and husband Jay Z rocked the 59th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles, Calif.
Looking radiant in a Peter Dundas red sequined gown, the Formation hitmaker, 35, was all smiles beside her dapper husband. Not to mention, their 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy who stole the show in a pink Gucci suit, which channeled the late Prince’s Purple Rain tuxedo.
While the mom-to-be lost out on the top awards of the night – album and record of the year – to Adele, she wound up with two wins: Best Music Video for Formation and Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade, giving her 22 Grammys in total throughout her career.
During the show, the pop superstar performed Love Drought and Sandcastles, in a floor-length gold, sheer belly-highlighting Peter Dundas gown with matching headpiece.
“Do you remember being born? Are you thankful? Are they hips that cracked? The deep velvet of your mother and her mother and her mother,” she said in introduction. “You look nothing like your mother, everything like your mother. You desperately want to look like her … You must wear it like she wears disappointment on her face.”
“Your mother is a woman, and women like her cannot be contained. I think of lovers as trees. Growing to and from one another. Searching for the same light. Why are you afraid of love? You think it’s not possible for someone like you, but you are the love of my life. The love of my life.”
In early February, the Bootylicious singer and her rap superstar husband shocked fans and announced they are expecting twins.
“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters,” the expectant mama captioned the image cradling her bare baby bump amid a sea of flowers.
This is the couple’s third pregnancy. The A-listers – who were wed in 2008 – were expecting a baby prior to Blue Ivy, but the singer suffered a miscarriage.
