Beyonce reveals she is pregnant with twins

When Beyoncé revealed she was pregnant with twins, there was a glimmer of hope in the world. Despite Donald Trump’s reign of terror continuing, life goes on.

Alongside an image of herself on the set of Edward Scissorhands, the singer wrote to her 92.3 million Instagram followers: "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.”

Beyoncé signed off the message ‘The Carters’, referring to herself, husband Jay Z and their child, Blue Ivy, who is five years old.

Within just 30 minutes, the post garnered 1.4 million likes on Instagram. Now, the image has broken the Guinness World Record for Most Liked Image in the social media site’s history, currently sitting on over 7.4 million likes in 14 hours.

The previous record holder was Selena Gomez, who posted an image of herself drinking a bottled beverage with her lyrics printed on them. The caption read: “When your lyrics are on the bottle #ad”

Earlier this year, Beyoncé broke another Guinness World Record after gaining the highest number of Grammy nominations for a female artist in history. Slay, Queen.
