Beyonce and Jay Z have announced they’re expecting twins.
Beyonce revealed the news in the most Queen Bey way possible on Instagram on Thursday, sharing a photo of herself in lingerie and a veil, surrounded by blooming flowers, to show off her pregnant belly.
“We would like to share our love and happiness,” Bey captioned the image. “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”
How did Beyonce and Jay Z know that this is exactly the happy, beautiful news the world needs now?! Thank you Carters, thank you. We can’t wait for your family of soon-to-be-five to come and save the world. No pressure!!
We could actually cry with happiness right now. Okay, fine ... we are actually crying with happiness right now. Beyonce and Jay Z, once the world's most perfect and adored couple, had a rough patch there for a while, as Bey revealed via the lyrics to the powerful songs on her epic album, Leomonade. Jay was unfaithful. But they got through it and healed. And they have Blue Ivy.
AND SOON THERE WILL BE TWO MORE BEY AND JAY OFFSPRING. Hence, those happy tears.
Aside from when Beyonce is due, the next most pressing question is: will she attend this month's Grammys? She's only nominated for about 8,000 awards. Okay fine, nine awards. It's still the most of anyone, so we think the likelihood of that is a big old yes. So hopefully we'll be seeing Bey's bump on the red carpet in less than two weeks, y'all. Get excited.
Beyonce sure does know how to do a pregnancy announcement right. She revealed to the world she was expecting Blue Ivy at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards by unbuttoning her jacket to reveal her bump at the end of a performance of "Love On Top".
Congratulations, Bey and Jay (and Blue Ivy)!
