Beyonce Announces She’s Pregnant With Twins

Beyonce has announced her second pregnancy as only Queen Bey could … with an epic Instagram photo.

“We would like to share our love and happiness,” the Grammy winner captioned an Instagram shot on Wednesday. “We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes.”

The “Single Ladies” singer — clad in lingerie and a veil, and kneeling in front of a large flower wreath — cradles her baby bump in the colorful photo. She famously announced her last pregnancy at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. She unbuttoned her sequinned tuxedo jacket at the end of her performance of “Love on Top,” (literally) dropped her mic, and rubbed her belly.

The above photo generated more than 1.2 million likes on Instagram within 30 minutes and more than 2.4 million in an hour. Another pop star, Selena Gomez, currently holds the record for the most-liked photo on Instagram, with 6.3 million-plus. Beyonce ultimately broke that record in less than eight hours.

More than half a million tweets were sent about the news within 45 minutes of Beyonce’s reveal. “#Twins” also became a trending topic a few minutes after the announcement.

The songstress will likely make her first red carpet appearance following the announcement at the Grammys on Feb. 12, where she’s nominated for nine awards. It’s unclear when she’s due, but Beyonce is slated to headline Coachella in April.

Beyonce, 35, and husband Jay Z, 47, wed in 2008 and are also the parents of 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. Soon-to-be big sister Blue made an appearance in a batch of photos that Beyonce released on her personal website on Thursday.

    1. Gosh, Beyonce, did you invent pregnancy? Self-grandizement that is vomit worthy.

        I don’t know anyone who runs around telling everyone their pregnant. I believe your supposed to make a big deal out of it – especially when you do the announcement. Pregnancy is special no matter who you are. I felt like a Queen throughout my whole pregnancy and no one could tell me different. You need to find something to do – this is not anything to complain about.

          I have to say there was sokme controversary when she was supposedly pregnant with Blue Ivy. I never believed she was pregnant and believe she had a surrogate deliver that child. So this time around, maybe she really is pregnant and wants everyone to know.

        Someone’s feeling unworthy, huh?
