Why Tina Knowles Had To Redesign Beyoncé’s MTV VMA Pregnancy Reveal Outfit At The Last Minute

Beyoncé’s famous pregnancy reveal outfit at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards almost didn’t make it on stage. On Tuesday, the 39-year-old superstar’s mom Tina Knowles-Lawson revealed that Beyoncé’s iconic outfit was an impromptu redesign she made just hours before her performance. “It wound up turning into a beautiful night but two hours before the performance we realized that the pants that I had gotten made were too tight and uncomfortable; the panel that I had put in them was not stretchy enough. So two hours before the performance I was at A Pea in the Pod Maternity shop. I bought two sizes in maternity pants but wound up taking the panel off of one of them and putting it in the ones that I had made!,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post.
