Beyoncé's cousin can count herself among those who are Instagram famous. While the world has known Beyoncé for years -- with the singer pictured above at a NBA game with Jay-Z as they watched the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors -- fans are just being introduced to Beyoncé's cousin. Kristin Douglas posted a photo on Instagram on Sunday, March 20, which featured Douglas and Beyoncé as they celebrated and remembered their Uncle Skip.

As reported by Yahoo, the Simply Kristin MD Instagram account initially had 2,000 followers. As of this writing, one day after Kristin posted the photo including Beyonce on Instagram, Douglas experienced her Instagram following swelling to more that 27,000 followers.

According to Kristin's Instagram profile, Douglas is a nurse and a mother of two kids who is also a Taurean. Astute Instagram observers noted that Kristin's Instagram profile didn't mention being a wife to anyone -- not that a missing "wife" description means that Douglas isn't married -- or that she's definitely single. Meanwhile, folks are quipping on Twitter about discovering articles titled "Meet Beyoncé's Fine Cousin, Kristin Douglas" soon -- followed by Douglas engaging in hosting parties due to her newfound fame.

"Nurse. Mom to two beautiful children. Taurus"

"My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana. You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bama"

"The gram is now on alert...We have found someone who has our FULL attention"

While the focus has been on Beyoncé's cousin Kristin, Black Sports Online reminded folks that "Beyoncé's cousin's sister" -- which should make her Beyoncé's cousin, as well -- is also very good looking. Her name is Kelsi, and in her online photos, she appears to look something similar to Kendall Jenner in one particular selfie duck-lip pose.
