Beyoncé recently opened up about her pregnancy to Australia's "Sunday Night," and during the chat, it was revealed that Mama B is expected to give birth to her first baby with Jay-Z in February of next year.
As we all know, 2012 is a big year for world events, but this birth could certainly eclipse a number of them. So what's going down in 2012 that should be bigger than the birth of this child but might not be?
» The election of the next president. It's America's first family vs. the First Family of Hip-Hop and R&B!
» The Mayan apocalypse. The end of the world is expected to take place next December, but this centuries-old belief could be thwarted by the birth of this baby months prior.
» Possible Guns N' Roses reunion at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. If anyone feels like backing out at the last minute (we're looking at you, anyone but Axl Rose!), we're sure Baby Carter/Knowles could broker the band's reconciliation and get everyone onboard.
» The Olympics in London. Of course, all anyone will be talking about is what this baby is wearing on the sidelines.
» The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. This occasion marks the 60 years Queen Elizabeth has been "watching the throne." Diamonds? B's baby already knows all about those — and he/she isn't even born yet!
Now that we know February is the big month, let the "Countdown" begin (get it???).
Will the birth of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's baby be 2012's biggest event? Let us know in the comments!
