Hey to Bey, the new momma on the bloc
Shortly after sending netizens into a tizzy, singer Beyonce is back with a brand new announcement. Bey took to her social media handles to share a gorgeous photograph to announce her pregnancy. Sorry, 'Becky with great hair,' your 15 minutes of fame is up as the singer is expecting twins with her better half, rapper Jay Z.
In fact, within just a few minutes of posting the image, 'twins' became the top trend on Twitter. Queen Bey also nudged Selena Gomez aside to cinch the title of the most-liked picture on Instagram with a whopping 6.33 million likes in less than eight hours after she posted it. Take a dekko at her announcement:
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
However, it seems that apart from the Queen carrying twins, the image is iconic for another reason. A long supporter of African-American community, Beyonce chose Feruary 1 to break her news. Incidentally, February is Black History Month, making it extra special. We can't help but wonder if the floral wonderland theme of her shoot is a hint that the two newborns would have flora-inspired names just like their elder sister Blue Ivy. Is the world ready for Black Rose and Purple Peony?
