Beyoncé just shook the world with a pregnancy announcement. Not only are Jay and Queen Bey expecting twins, but she announced the pregnancy in the most extra way possible: with an Instagram photo that is OTT in the best way. In the spirit of the new Bey-bies, check out these other iconic pregnancy announcements.
While today’s announcement truly felt like a gift from above, let’s not forget when Beyoncé first told the world she was pregnant with Blue Ivy at the 2011 VMAs. After a performance of “Love on Top,” Bey literally dropped the mic and rubbed her belly, a simultaneously subtle yet totally epic way of showing off her pregnancy to the world.
Back in 2012, it was Kanye who announced the news of Kim Kardashian’s first pregnancy. At a show in Atlantic City, Kanye stopped the music and told the crowd to “make noise for my baby mama!”
In 2015, Chrissy Teigen opted for a sweet, emotional Instagram post to announce her pregnancy with baby Luna. “As many of you know, we’ve been trying to have a baby for a while now,” she wrote. “It hasn’t been easy, but we kept trying because we can’t wait to bring our first child into the world and grow our family. We’re so excited it’s finally happening.”
