Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is pregnant with twins. Bey announced the news on Wednesday in characteristically spectacular, unexpected fashion via a miraculous Instagram picture. In it, the icon displays her bare baby bump while draped in a gauzy veil and situated in front of a bed of colorful flowers. Next to the photo, she revealed, “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,” signing it “The Carters.”
Within moments, people LOST it. A Beyoncé pregnancy is news worth losing control of your higher brain functions in any reality. In this one, though, on the first day of the first Black History Month in the new but already overwhelming administration of President Donald Trump—when it feels like the social order may or may not be teetering on the brink of apocalyptic collapse—well, we really, really, really needed this one.
From general feelings of euphoria to revelations of the Second Coming, here are the best reactions to the Knowles-Carter expansion plan.
