Not only is Beyonce pregnant — despite outlandish claims about her wearing a “fake bump” — but she’s embracing it so much that she revealed to the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar how she’s designing her own maternity line within her House of Dereon collection.

“All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” she says. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant.” The “Countdown” singer adds, “I’ve had so much fun with fashion over the months,” admitting that she spends “too much money shopping on the Internet.”

Beyonce also shares how she decided to announce her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards in August. “I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself,” she explains. “I didn’t want a crazy picture or gossip story to break the news, so I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”

Though Beyonce didn’t want “a crazy picture or gossip story” to announce her pregnancy, unfortunately she’s had to deal with ridiculous rumors since her baby news became public.
