This is not a drill! Queen Bey revealed on February 1 that she and Jay-Z are expecting TWINS. And of course she made her pregnancy announcement in the most Beyonce way possible.
She posted the above Instagram photo, where she’s posing in lingerie and a veil and cradling her blooming belly. She captioned it “We would like to share our love and happiness. 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 Carters.”
Now this announcement isn’t quite as grand as when Beyonce announced she was pregnant with Blue Ivy, 5. But to be fair she made that news on stage during a live broadcast—it’s hard to top that!
Now tell us if we are reading too much into this photo, but she is wearing both blue and red. Is this a sign she’s expecting a boy and a girl? We think so!
This morning (February 2), Beyonce shared more photos from her maternity shoot.
There were lots of flowers in the shoot, which has us wondering if the babies will have floral names (Violet, Petal, Daisy, Blossom, etc)
Blue even joined in on the shoot and gave some sweet kisses to her new siblings.
And finally, in what is easily the craziest photo from the shoot: Beyonce posed underwater.
What, you didn’t pose upside down in the water for your maternity shoot? Ha!
There have been many rumours over the years that Beyonce is expecting, so people are very excited that she’s pregnant. Here are just a few of the excited (and hilarious!) reactions on Twitter.
We are thrilled for the couple. And quite curious about what unique names they’ll choose for their new babes. How do you top Blue Ivy?
See which other celebs are pregnant in Hollywood:
Donna is expecting! The That ’70s Show actor announced on her Instagram that she and husband Ben Foster are expecting their second child. “We are so excited to announce that our family is growing. Life is beautiful! #knockedup,” she wrote in the caption accompanying this sweet photo of her and her two-year-old daughter Ella. Doesn’t she look so happy? Looks like she’s joining fellow Orange Is The New Black star Danielle Brooks on the baby train. The show may be over, but hopefully we can expect a little cast reunion playdate! Wouldn’t that be adorable?
