When the music superstar took to Instagram to announce that she is pregnant with twins her fans erupted with excitement and likes and comments rolling in. So fast in fact, that less than eight hours after sharing the incredible news, Beyoncé broke the record for the most liked Instagram snapshot of all time.
“We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. - The Carters”, the caption, alongside an artistic photo of a lingerie-clad Queen Bey cradling her baby bump, read in part.
She edged out Selena Gomez for the title, as more than 6.6 million people have liked her photo and nearly 345,000 have shared their well wishes in the comment section.
Gomez broke the record last summer when she shared a sponsored photo of herself sipping on a Coke. At 4 million likes, the ‘Same Old Love’ singer’s photo surpassed the previous most-liked image by about 300,000 likes which also, coincidentally, featured Selena Gomez and ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber.
Former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams also weighed in on one fan’s response to her close friend’s pregnancy. ENews
