Beyoncé’s baby delays film?

    Less than two days after Beyoncé debuted her baby bump, the diva’s little one is already setting records and rearranging schedules.

    Production for Beyoncé’s next film, A Star Is Born, may be pushed back, depending on when her baby arrives, according to Supposedly Warner Bros. wanted to start shooting the movie in early February.

    Since Bey might be giving birth around that time (she’s about three months along), it "could push" production plans back. The silver lining in this delay is that this will give the studio more time to find a leading man.

    Clint Eastwood, who is directing A Star Is Born, had wanted Bey to star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, but the actor turned down the role.

    This speculation comes as Twitter announced Bey’s baby news broke records on its website when the diva showed off her baby bump after tipping around stage in a pair of stilettos during her performance of "Love on Top."

    Before Beyoncé had finished rubbing her belly, Twitter was, well, all a twitter! Reactions to the baby news were officially clocked at 8,868 tweets per second (TPS), a new record for any single event. That number smashed the record previously held by the final moments of the Women’s World Cup in July, which had  7,196 TPS.

    Among Sunday’s tweets were congratulations from Bey’s celebrity contemporaries, such as LeToya Luckett, who tweeted, "WOW!! In tears!! Congrat’s BEY & JAY!  What a beautiful performance Bey! #glowin." Dawn Richard agreed, posting what ran through everyone’s head by stating, "Yes Beyonce… #glowing gonna be a talented child.. God bless them both!"

    New mommy Tia Mowry welcomed Beyoncé to to the maternity club, writing, "Omg yay!!!!!! Beyonce is pregnant! Why am I am so happy ha!"

    "Congrats to @beyonce & Jay Z on expecting a baby! Unique names in her family for sure- what y’all think they will name the baby?" Niecy Nash asked. Chrisette Michelle answered with, "Beyonce is preggers. That’s like the coolest thing I ever heard. Bey-Jay they should name him or her. BJ Carter I should b the godmommy."

    Meanwhile,  Keri Hilson was just in awe of Beyoncé as a performer. "She’s doing it with child!! If that aint empowering I dunno what IS," she tweeted.

    Solange Knowles fended off her sister’s haters (some people just can’t be happy for others) by reminding her followers that Bey hasn’t exactly had success handed to her on a silver platter. "One.And.Only. I could not possibly be more proud. Tears in my eyes," Solange tweeted. "No one deserves it more. That doesn’t happen by accident. That doesn’t happen by chance. That doesn’t happen by gimmicks."

    Diddy’s son Justin thinks a lot of girls could learn by following in the "1+1" singer’s footsteps. "Beyonce dated, married, THEN got pregnant… young ladies take notes," he advised.

    The biggest reaction to the news couldn’t be found online, however. “Jay is ecstatic and over the moon,” a source close to the couple told “He really wanted this so badly.”

    MTV News reports that Jay, who literally saluted his wife from the audience, could be heard telling some well wishers backstage, "That was an eventful night, to say the least."

    But what did Bey have to say about the big reveal? "I’m free! We’re all free!"
