Beyoncé’s twins haven’t been born yet, but they’ve already helped their mother break an Instagram record.
On Wednesday (Feb. 2), Queen Bey shared the now-viral image of herself wearing a veil and lingerie to announce that she was expecting twins. Soon after, the photo received the most likes (8.1 million) and comments (392,000) ever on Instagram.
‘Yoncé’s pic easily surpassed IG’s previous record-holder, Selena Gomez and her Coca-Cola-sponsored photo from June 2016. That image has 6.3 million likes and 263,000 comments. At 108 million, Selena still has more followers than Beyoncé, whose count is currently at 93 million.
Queen Bey also nearly broke Twitter with this news. The social media platform reported more than 500,000 tweets about the twins within 45 minutes of the announcement. This was particularly impressive since Bey has only tweeted twice since August 2013 and not once since April 2016.
Jay Z and Beyoncé announced the big news with a joint statement captioning the record-breaking photo. “We would like to share our love and happiness,” they 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.”
While the Instagram photo has been shared frequently, it isn’t the only pregnancy image Beyoncé has revealed. Her website now features a post titled “I Have Three Hearts,” which shows a variety of photos from the maternity shoot, including stunning underwater portraits and video, nude photos, and flicks featuring her first-born, Blue Ivy.
