Beyonce's Twins Photo 2nd Most Liked in Instagram History
Queen Bey took to her Insta in the early hours Friday (July 14) to unveil her newborns, Sir and Rumi Carter, to commemorate their one-month birthday. In line with the elaborate floral backdrop that Beyonce used when announcing that she was expecting twins in February, the pic shows the singer holding her babies amidst another flower-decked canopy, draped in a pastel gown and sporting a blue veil.
If you recall, Beyonce's pregnancy announcement set the record for Instagram's most-liked picture on the day it was posted (Feb. 1), garnering 6.4 million likes within hours and surpassing Selena Gomez's previous record of 6.305 million on her Coca-Cola ad photo. With her latest baby pic, though, Beyonce has now claimed the top two spots on the most-liked ranking, as it took only 9 hours for it to become the second most liked picture in Instagram history. Just 24 hours after she revealed the Carter babies to the world, the number of likes stands at 9.2 million.
So now the question is, will Beyonce (and her babies) replace herself for the top spot? As of press time, the pregnancy photo is now at 11,113,053 likes, which means the picture with the twins has about 1.8 million more likes to go before Beyonce tops Beyonce. Only time will tell, but it certainly appears to be on track so far.
