Beyoncé's baby bump delays A Star is Born

Over the weekend at the MTV VMA Awards Beyoncé announced that she and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child.

This means that filming on her new movie A Star Is Born has had to be pushed back as it was due to start shooting in February 2012. Beyoncé will play up and coming starlet Esther Blodgett (later Vicki Lester).This is the role previously played by Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland in the 1976 and 1954 adaptations, and Janet Gaynor in the 1937 original.

It could be a blessing in more than one disguise as it will give the producers of Clint Eastwood's musical remake longer to find a suitable leading man after Eastwood failed to convince Leonardo DiCaprio to sign on.
