Baby on board: Mother to be Beyonce beamed as she left her hotel in downtown New York this morning

She has a reputation as one of the most stylish women in music.

So it's no surprise that Beyonce is applying her fashion know-how to dress her growing pregnancy bump too.

The 30-year-old singer looked stylish and sophsticated as she left her hotel in downtown New York earlier today.

Dressed in a cute plaid mini dress paired with towering black heels the star beamed as she gracefully strolled from her hotel to a waiting car.

She accessorised the trendy dress with oversized huge gold hoop earrings, a pair of Ray Ban shades and a vibrant orange handbag.

She wore her hair pulled back in a casual low bun and rocked a bright red lipstick which served to highlight her beaming smile.

Mother-to-be: The singer looked happy and relaxed in her sophisticated outfit and accessories which included gold hooped earrings and an orange bag

The singer, actress and fashion mogul, who announced her pregnancy at last month's MTV Video Music Awards, was recently asked if she wishes she wasn't so famous.

'Well sometimes,' she told ET Canada. 'I always have those moments but it’s my life and I can’t complain. I’m very fortunate. I love what I do.

'And, you know, I still - it’s strange but I’ve gotten a lot of respect from paparazzi and people just kinda letting me live and spend time and go on dates and kinda be a human,' she added.

Meanwhile her usually uber-private husband, rapper Jay Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, finally opened up about his wife's pregnancy.

The 41-year-old mogul spoke to E! News about becoming a father at the Shawn Carter Foundation charity carnival at Pier 54 last night.

'I'm excited! I think that is pretty easy,' he gushed.

Their baby, which is rumoured to be a girl, is due next spring.
