Yesterday, Beyoncé pulled f another classic surprise, announcing to the world that she and husband Jay Z are expecting twins. She made the news public by posting a photo to Instagram, and within hours, Queen Bey had shattered the record for the most-liked picture in the history the photo-sharing app.
 
Currently exceeding 8 million likes, Bey’s pregnancy photo unseated Selena Gomez’s Coca Cola-sipping shot from this past summer — by more than a couple million little hearts.
 
Now, Bey has set her sights on dominating the Internet beyond the realm Instagram by sharing a huge new photo set on her ficial website.
 
In addition to old photographs her engagement, wedding, honeymoon, first pregnancy with Blue Ivy Carter and a whole lot fancy looking parties and holidays, Beyoncé unveiled some new maternity photos.
 
Some echo the artsy floral set-up we saw yesterday with the initial announcement, though there are also plenty underwater shots, and some photos Bey, her belly and Blue Ivy against a Lemonade-tinted yellow backdrop.
 
She even shared a poem from Warsan Shire (whose work was quoted on Lemonade), which reads:
 
i’m watching life inside me grow;
there’s life growing inside me
and i’m beside myself with dreams.
 
was it your voice i heard? you speak to me
from inside me,
 
i have three hearts.
