Pop queen Beyoncé is pregnant with twins.

She announced the news in an Instagram post on Wednesday, where she reveals her bump while dressed in underwear and a tulle veil, in front of a wall of roses.

“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 – The Carters,” reads the caption.

The Instagram announcement had more than 1.5m “likes” within 35 minutes of publishing.

Beyoncé is due to headline April’s Coachella festival. Assuming the announcement has come after the traditional 12-week pregnancy waiting period, she will be at least five and a half months pregnant when she takes to the stage.

Beyoncé and husband Jay Z’s daughter Blue Ivy was born in 2012. She revealed her pregnancy with Blue Ivy on the red carpet at the MTV music awards in 2011, before showing off her bump after a performance of Love on Top.

Beyoncé, 35, is due to make an appearance at the Grammy awards on 12 February, where she is nominated in nine categories for her Lemonade album last year, the most nominations of any artist this year.
