Beyonce managed to distract the world from the antics of Donald Trump, for a minute at least, on Wednesday as she revealed she’s pregnant with twins.
The Lemonade hitmaker, 35, confirmed her and husband rapper Jay Z are adding two more to their family in a post on Instagram, which showed the mum-to-be (again) posing in a bra and veil while holding her growing stomach surrounded by flowers.
“We would like to share our love and happiness,” the star, who is already mum to daughter Blue Ivy, 5, wrote.
“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.”
It might have been a short and sweet message, but that’s all Beyonce needed – the photo getting 7 million likes on Instagram alone after just a few hours.
Many thanked Beyonce for providing a ray of light in troubling times.
The world is burning and Beyonce’s response is: MAKE TWO MORE BEYONCES

Beyoncé sensed that we were all in need of good news, and so Beyoncé got pregnant with twins. Beyoncé is a woman of and for the people.

The New York Post managed to even-out-do Twitter for their OTT reaction.

Despite it not being anything to do with Donald Trump, somehow he got dragged into it.
Sad that there are more black people in Beyoncé right now, than in Trumps entire cabinet team.

Not everyone was sure the earth mother photoshoot was necessary.
I’m still shocked Beyoncé had a whole ass Mother Nature esque photoshoot just to announce her pregnancy on Instagram.

The Carter twins will be siblings for the superstar couple’s daughter Blue Ivy, 5, who was born in 2012 – four years after the couple tied the knot.
But what was with the bare baby bump? Some speculated on Twitter it was Beyonce’s way of shutting down surrogacy conspiracy theories before they got started.
Back when she was pregnant with Blue Ivy, Bey’s baby bump appeared to fold during an interview, leading to claims she wasn’t actually carrying her daughter.
Some people who might not be crazy in love with the baby news though are those with tickets to the Coachella Music Festival where Beyonce is meant to be headlining in just two months time.
No word yet on whether that will go ahead, but fans are already excited to see the performance.
