Every once in a while, there comes along a great love story -- a love story so moving and romantic that cultures all over the world pass down the tale from generation to generation: Napoleon and Josephine, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Romeo and Juliet. And of course, Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
Since the beginning of their relationship, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have remained über-private about the details of their courtship. All we really know is that the two collaborated on 2003's " '03 Bonnie & Clyde" and Beyoncé's jam "Crazy In Love," and before you could say "ride or die till the very end," Bey and Jay were hitched!
It's been three years since Beyoncé and Jay-Z got married, and just before Beyoncé's 30th birthday this year, she announced she was pregnant with the couple's first child (right on the VMA stage #humblebrag).
