A stunning and glowing Beyonce stepped out in New York on Wednesday to launch her new fragrance, Beyonce Pulse. Typically, the superstar artist is a very private person, but when Access Hollywood guest correspondent Jill Martin sat down with her, Beyonce opened up about her other big news (her pregnancy!) and how she came up with the idea to reveal her baby bump at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.
"You know, I dreamt it, actually," Beyonce told Jill of the inspiration behind her pregnancy announcement. "There were so many rumors about me being pregnant every three months for the past couple of years — I thought the best way and classiest way was to just show it.

"And my husband and I have been together for 10 years, so I guess people felt a part of it and it makes me feel really good," she added.
Following Beyonce's big reveal at the end of her VMAs performance, cameras cut to a shot of her husband, Jay-Z, in the audience along with Kanye West, as the two rappers jumped up and down and cheered in celebration.
Although the proud, soon-to-be daddy's enthusiasm was seen by millions, Beyonce said she missed the endearing moment.
"I couldn't see that in real life, but I did see it on a bunch of TV specials," the 30-year-old singer said. "You couldn't escape it, so it was nice!"
As for motherhood, B said she feels she's been preparing for this moment for years.
"I just feel like everything I've been through in my life is all for right now," she told Jill. "So hopefully life will continue to get better, and I'll continue to get stronger and be an incredible mother."
Beyonce was solo at the launch party for her third fragrance, but both she and Jay-Z were very involved in creating Pulse.
"I wear it, I live with it for about six months, and we tweak," she revealed, when asked about her creative process. "I make sure it's long lasting.
"And I make sure I get my compliments from everyone — from my fans to my husband," she added with a laugh.
