Beyoncé has unveiled more stunning maternity pictures after announcing that she’s expecting twins.
The mum-of-one shared the images on her website, Beyonce.com, with the collection depicting her swimming underwater, posing for nude black-and-white shots, and spending time with daughter Blue Ivy.
She first broke the news of her pregnancy in an Instagram post that’s since broken the record to become the most-liked image on Instagram – with a staggering 7,170,569 likes and over 362,000 comments.
In the serene image the mum of one can be seen cradling a blossoming baby bump, dressed in purple and blue underwear, surrounded by flowers and with a veil over her head.
Beyoncé captioned the beautiful photo: ‘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. – The Carters’
It didn’t take long for the internet to go into meltdown over the announcement, and even celebrities seemed excited by the baby news!
Pop star Rihanna shared Beyoncé’s announcement photo alongside the caption: ‘so excited about this news!!!! Congratulations to you @Beyonce and my big brother Jay!!!! 👼🏾👼🏾’
Rita Ora couldn’t wait to share her own excitement, again sharing the Destiny’s Child star’s picture with the caption: ‘Yay!!!!! Congratulations 🐝!!!!! 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼 soooooo beautiful!!!!!’

It’s not clear when Beyoncé and Jay Z will be welcoming their two new arrivals or their gender. The twins will be siblings for the couple’s five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter, whom they welcomed in 2012.
Congratulations to the expectant parents – we can’t wait for more bump photos!
