Beyonce shows her baby bump in a documentary trailer for her HBO film.

It’s a glamour shot of the world’s most famous Bey-Bey — before she was born.

Months before anyone knew she was expecting, Beyoncé Knowles stood in her bathroom and used her cell phone to film her bare-belly baby bump.

Inside, Blue Ivy Carter was growing, but at the time Knowles was simply marveling at her changing body.

Now the picture represents the most radical twist yet in the mega-pop star’s career. And it’s one of many intimate pictures she plans to reveal in a new film about her life.

Beyoncé’s personal and professional life will take the spotlight in an intimate yet-to-be named documentary she is directing for HBO, which plans to air it on Feb. 16.

On Monday the pay cable channel and Beyoncé posted a teaser trailer on the Internet, featuring both the polished singer on stage and an even more beautiful, makeup-free Beyoncé confessing her feelings to her computer at home.

Making the film has been a struggle, the 31-year-old said.

“I always battle with, ‘How much do I reveal about myself?’ ” she says in the trailer.

“If I’m scared, be scared, allow it. Release it,” she said.

The documentary is expected to include home movies and Beyoncé’s reflections about her family’s role in her career.

She promises to show in the film how she and her rap-mogul husband, Jay-Z, handled family responsibilities and how she soon returned to the spotlight.

Beyoncé, who filmed some of the footage on her laptop, in some scenes “reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother,” HBO officials said.
