Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose announce pregnancy at VMAs

Amber Rose is no Beyonce. Nevertheless, she did a poor imitation of the Queen B’s great baby bump reveal of 2011 at the VMAs, confirming her pregnancy with rapper Wiz Khalifa on the red carpet during the pre-show. Somewhere, Blue Ivy is rolling her eyes in a gilded crib.

Rose and Khalifa got engaged in the spring. There’s no word yet on either the wedding date or the due date, though while he was presenting the award for best new artist, Wiz said that baby Khalifa-Rose would come in six months . Her baby bump was obvious in her skin tight black lace and mesh dress, and Khalifa posed with his hand on her stomach for photographers.

The pregnancy reveal — complete with a Beyonce-impostor belly rub — sets an unfortunate precedent for the VMAs. Will stars time their pregnancies so that they hit the second trimester right about the time they’re about to strut down the carpet toward a moon man trophy? Will there be a future VMA category for best pregnancy announcement? So many questions.
