Beyoncé is proud of what she's packing.
The pop star's new "Countdown" video premiered today and, while she dons plenty of flowy tops and often poses for the camera head-on, B also cuts a fierce pregnant figure at one point, swiveling sideways and caressing her newly rounded midsection.

And, of course, there's a little dance that you're going to want to learn. Check it out:
