Beyonce proudly paraded her pregnant bump on stage at the Grammys – and she was glowing – literally!
The 35-year-old looked stunning in a gold bikini, gold sequin gown and matching gold crown while showcasing her bare tum.
When Bey, who recently announced she’s expecting twins with her rapper husband Jay Z, came onto the stage she was tenderly cradling her baby bump.
The songstress then launched into her tracks, Love Drought and Sandcastles from her album Lemonade.

And Bey – who is already mum to four-year-old Blue Ivy – gave a stellar performance, although she scaled back on her usually-rigorous dance routines. But she did impressively rock back in her chair during the routine!

Bey’s mum opens the show
The routine was opened by the singer’s mum, who said: “I’m blessed to have daughters—wonderful daughters—all of whom make me proud with everything they do. All Grammy winners tonight, too—that’s not on the script.
“I am proud of their accomplishments, their self-confidence, and their desire to make a difference. What makes me most proud—and why I’m here tonight to introduce Beyoncé—is the devotion and love I see in her for her daughter and the way she has always expressed love to all of those around her.
“I believe she earned nine Grammy nominations for her Lemonade album this year because of all of that and more. It’s evident in her powerful words and music.”
‘Do you remember being born?’
There was also a video montage during the performance, with Bey saying: “Do you remember being born? Are you thankful for the hips that cracked, the deep velvet of your mother and her mother and her mother?
“You look nothing like your mother; everything like your mother. You desperately want to look like her. How to wear your mother’s lipstick? 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 love 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.”
Powerful Speech About Learning From The Past
Later on, Bey gave a powerful speech as she accepted the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album.
“I thank God for my family, my wonderful husband, my beautiful daughter, my fans for bringing me so much happiness and support. We all experience pain and loss and often we become inaudible,” she said.
“My intention for the film and album was to create a body of work that would give a voice to our pain — our struggles, our darkness, and our history. To confront issues that make us uncomfortable.”
“It’s important for me to show images to my children that reflect their beauty so they can grow up in a world where they look in the mirror, first through their own families, as well as the news, the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the White House, and the Grammys, and see themselves, and have no doubt that they’re beautiful, intelligent, and capable.
“This is something I want for every child of every race, and I feel it’s vital that we learn from the past and recognise our tendencies to repeat our mistakes.”
Beyonce shared a series of snaps on her official website.
