Beyonce has announced her second pregnancy as only Queen Bey could … with an epic Instagram photo.

“We would like to share our love and happiness,” the Grammy winner captioned an Instagram shot on Wednesday. “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 “Single Ladies” singer — clad in lingerie and a veil, and kneeling in front of a large flower wreath — cradles her baby bump in the colorful photo. She famously announced her last pregnancy at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. She unbuttoned her sequinned tuxedo jacket at the end of her performance of “Love on Top,” (literally) dropped her mic, and rubbed her belly.

The above photo generated more than 1.2 million likes on Instagram within 30 minutes and more than 2.4 million in an hour. Another pop star , Selena Gomez, currently holds the record for the most-liked photo on Instagram, with 6.3 million-plus.

More than half a million tweets were sent about the news within 45 minutes of Beyonce’s reveal. “#Twins” also became a trending topic a few minutes after the announcement.

The songstress will likely make her first red carpet appearance following the announcement at the Grammys on Feb. 12, where she’s nominated for nine awards. It’s unclear when she’s due, but Beyonce is slated to headline Coachella in April.

Beyonce, 35, and husband Jay Z, 47, wed in 2008 and are also the parents of 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.
