While vacationing in Croatia for her birthday with hubby Jay-Z and friend Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyonce showed off her baby belly in a white bikini. There are doubters as to whether Beyonce is really pregnant, I think these photos will put the naysayers to rest!
They’ve been spotted in Venice, Italy and Hvar Island, Croatia and these photos show them taking a break from their yacht. Beyonce announced she was pregnant last week at the VMAs (see here). I’m sure we’ll see more photos of Queen B showing off that belly.

Once things settled down, Evelyn judged a hype MC battle between two women, one reppin the West Coast, the other the East, who went round-for-round, one even threw in Evelyn’s signature quote, “You’re a non-motherf&^#ing factor,” which drew a lot of praise from the crowd. Once the battle was over, Evelyn headed to the patio to judge a wet t-shirt contest, and it was bananas!
The Lovely Sheneka Adama was also in the building and help host the party. You have to give it toÂ Evelyn for coming out and supporting when most just hate on what they don’t understand.
