Beyoncé and Jay Z are going to be getting a lot less sleep much later this year. The Houston songstress took to Instagram to announce she’s pregnant with twins in an artfully crafted photo showing off her baby bump.
The photo went up Wednesday (February 1) afternoon with Queen Bey graciously sharing the good news with her more than 92 million followers. In the caption of the photo, Beyoncé dropped the not-so-subtle hint that she’s carrying twins much to the delight of her fans.
“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,” read the photo’s caption, which was signed “The Carters.”
In the photo, a massive collection of roses served as the backdrop while Beyoncé, positively glowing, wore a maroon bra top and a sheer veil while kneeling and cradling her belly. In a matter of minutes, thousands of comments and congratulations began pouring in as the news began to spread.
“Yaaaaayyyy! Congratulations!!! I’m so happy!!!” wrote one excited fan, echoing a familiar sentiment while another exclaimed, “Love you!!!!!! Congratulations Bey!!! Praying for health and happiness!!”
Of course, there was a person or two who quipped that the pregnancy photo was a publicity stunt.
“[A]re you actually carrying this time or is that surrogate back on payroll,” wrote one user in a comment directly addressed to the singer. Overall, the comments remained largely positive in scope.
Future big sister Blue Ivy just celebrated her 5th birthday early last month.
