The entire world was a witness to history on Wednesday, February 1, when R&B superstar Beyonce took to Instagram and announced her pregnancy. Moreover, she said in the statement that she and her husband, famous rapper Jay-Z are actually expecting twins. The 20-time Grammy winner is reportedly extremely happy and her pregnancy is going well.
In the statement posted on her Instagram account, the singer is saying that she and her husband are very happy and that they feel blessed “two times over”. She added to the post a beautiful picture of her, surrounded by flowers and holding her growing baby bump. Beyonce and Jay-Z have been married since 2008, when they tied the knot in a super-secret ceremony in New York. They also have another daughter, 5-year old Blue Ivy. Everybody remembers that iconic moment when she announced her first pregnancy in 2011, during her show at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Back in 2013, she offered some details on how she felt being pregnant in the HBO Documentary, “Life is but a Dream”. The star’s mom, Tina Knowles Lawson also took to Instagram and congratulated her daughter. Last year, Beyonce amazed everyone with her innovative visual album called “Lemonade”, for which she received nine nominations at this year’s Grammy Awards. Back then, fans speculated that the singer was actually displaying the fact that her partner had betrayed her and she found out about it. The famous line “Becky with the good hair” prompted fans to suspect that it was about another woman in Jay-Z’s life. Nobody knows the truth and the singer never made any statements. Now, it seems like they have found their way back to normality, with Queen Bey’s pregnancy.
Seconds after Beyonce posted her message on her personal Instagram account, fans everywhere and celebrities alike started freaking out with excitement. Thousands and thousands of comments and likes later, more precisely, eight hours later, the singer broke the record for the most liked Instagram photo ever. She managed to surpass Selena Gomez’s picture which previously had the most likes on Instagram. Over 4 million of them, to be precise. Beyonce gained over 6 million likes for her pregnancy-announcing photo.
Last summer, singer Selena Gomez shared a gorgeous photo of her, sipping from a bottle of Coke. Interestingly enough, Selena Gomez also held the previous record, with a photo of her and former celebrity boyfriend, Justin Bieber. Even before that, Kendall Jenner’s photo with her hair in the shape of hearts was the absolute winner. However, Beyonce’s photo is no doubt expected to gain a lot more likes, comments and shares in the coming months. Her fans are famous for their dedication to the one they so adoringly call Queen Bey.
Until the singer will reveal other details about the two babies she is expecting with her rapper husband, the world will keep on speculating. About the babies’ genres, names or whether or not Blue Ivy will have sisters, brothers or even both. We will all find out in a few months.
