Beyonce has confirmed she is pregnant again.

Yonce announced on Instagram that she and her husband Jay Z are going to be the proud parents of twins.

Alongside a dramatic glamour shot of Bey in all her pregnant glory, the singer said: ‘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.’

It is a fabulous picture. We’re not sure if it’s serious banter – in which case, amazing – or if Bey genuinely wanted a iconic shoot with mildly religious overtones.

Either way this is well on its way to become the most-liked Instagram snap ever, fetching over 1 million likes in the space of half an hour.

The singer is already mum to five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy who was born in 2012.

In 2013 she spoke about wanting to give Blue a little brother or sister.

‘I would like more children. I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister.’
