It’s been a week of momentous occasions for Beyoncé Knowles.

Just several days after showing off her baby bump and announcing she and hubby Jay-Z, 41, are expecting their first child, the “Love on Top” singer celebrated her big 3-0.

Rocking a full head of au naturel curls, the mom-to-be and her man jet-setted off to Venice, Italy, where they were spotted leaving a hotel on Saturday. Then, on Sunday (her actual birthday!) the couple had dinner at “one of the city’s most celebrated restaurants,” according to foreign press reports.

The pop star, who has been especially giddy since her pregnancy, recently said to viewers at the MTV Video Music Awards, “I want you to stand up on your feet. I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.”
