Winner and loser of the week: Beyonce breaks the internet with her pregnancy; every other baby is upstaged
Beyonce. Hold up and ring the alarm, people. The beyhive just grew by two. If you've been living under a rock, Beyonce is pregnant with twins, which she announced so gloriously via Instagram. "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," the post read. Bey posed in a pink and blue lingerie set while kneeling in front of a wreath of flowers with a green veil, which has fans speculating Bey and husband Jay Z will be having a boy and a girl.
The news rightfully broke the internet, and crushed Selena Gomez's Instagram record for the most likes on a photo. That apparently wasn't enough for Beyonce, because she had to go and out-Beyonce herself by releasing an entire pregnancy photo album the following day on her website. The album, titled I Have Three Hearts, also featured a poem by Warsan Shire, whose work was also on Beyonce's Lemonade. The album features lots of florals, an underwater segment and some adorable photos with Beyonce and daughter, Blue Ivy, 5. Celebs and fans had zero chill about the news, many making references to Destiny's Child. Congrats! Which brings us to this week's "loser"...
Everyone else's baby. Don't get us wrong, we're always happy to hear celebrity baby news. But Beyonce has officially stolen the baby spotlight for now. Maybe forever. Pharrell Williams and wife Helen Lasichanh welcomed TRIPLETS the day before Bey revealed her pregnancy, and you don't see that trending. New Girl star Zooey Deschanel announced she was pregnant with baby number two, it wasn't internet-shattering. Some expecting celebs even recreated Beyonce's look to try to hop on the baby buggy bandwagon. Trolls even made memes of Ciara's recent twin announcement being upstaged (it was). At least we can expect some amazing playdates.
