The `Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)` hitmaker announced at last weekend`s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) that she and husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child together and insiders say they have since received messages and presents from their celebrity friends, including Rihanna, Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce`s former Destiny`s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
A source said: "Her phone hasn`t stopped ringing. She`s received dozens of bouquets of flowers, teddy bears, fruit baskets, you name it."
Beyonce and Jay-Z tied the knot in 2008 and while they have previously spoken of their desire to start a family, friends say they wanted to enjoy their first years of marriage before having children.
The insider explained to America`s OK! magazine: "She and Jay wanted to focus on their careers and enjoy the first years of their marriage.
"Now, with everything so perfect in both those regards, she can`t wait to be a mom."
Earlier this year, Beyonce spoke of her desire to settle down into being a wife and mother.
She said: "When you`re young - 18 or 19 - you have the energy and drive. That`s the time to work as hard as you can.
"Now I`m a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children."
