Kim Kardashian’s VMA Highlight: Beyonce’s Big News

'It was really cool of her to come out and show that at the VMAs, 'cause music is her outlet,' newlywed says.

Kim Kardashian rushed back from her honeymoon this weekend and made it to the Nokia Theatre in time to present Best Male Video at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. But her favorite highlight of the evening was the same as many of us viewing from home: getting the Beyoncé pregnancy news !

The newlywed talked with MTV News’ Jim Cantiello after the show and said that she loved seeing the pop star pat her pregnant belly onstage after running through a high-energy performance of her track “Love on Top.”

At the beginning of her performance, Beyoncé emerged from the darkness, saying, “Tonight I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me!”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z celebrate their big news backstage.

Married to hip-hop superstar Jay-Z for three years, the star has said time and time again that she planned on having a baby by the time she was 30, and she turns 30 on Sunday. Her husband beamed at the end of her performance while pal and collaborator Kanye West congratulated him.

None of that excitement was lost on Kardashian.

“Beyoncé is definitely my highlight,” Kardashian said. “I adore her anyway, but it was so sweet. I thought it was really cool of her to come out and show that at the VMAs, ’cause music is her outlet. She could have done it with any magazine or news station, but she chose her home. I thought it was really cool.”

And speaking of having babies, that’s exactly what Kardashian said she’d be doing right now if she weren’t busy with her ever-rising career.

“I would be a mom right now, for sure,” she said, in response to a question from fans. “I love kids, and I would probably have done this a lot sooner.”
