Beyonce is proving to be a hands-on mom to Blue Ivy as she prepares to welcome twin babies with husband Jay Z. The singer has been posting plenty of baby bump shots to her Instagram and website, and those photos often include her 5-year-old daughter.
Bey and Blue flaunted matching outfits for both Easter and Mother’s Day recently, but the mother-daughter duo didn’t stop there. The pair also seemed to have a fun Memorial Day weekend as they strutted their stuff in bathing suits for Instagram.
Entertainment Tonight reported on Beyonce and Blue Ivy’s family photo as the site called the post “sweet.”
“Red, white, and Blue! Beyonce took to Instagram late Monday to celebrate Memorial Day with a sweet photo. In the pic, Beyonce is holding up her 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, who is resting comfortably on top of her mom’s baby bump.”
While the 35-year-old Lemonade artist has always included Blue in her social media photos, her appearances do take on a new meaning as she prepares to go from an only child to a big sister of two. Fans have enjoyed seeing the family photos as they share their likes and comments on Beyonce’s Instagram posts.
The latest mother-daughter image received almost 3 million likes despite some commenters questioning if Bey is faking her pregnancy at this point. Some fans seem to believe the singer has already given birth and is trying to hide her babies from the public.
However, other fans ignored these rumors and congratulated Bey on her growing family instead.
“Congratulations sweety Bey! You are such an inspiration. Sending a bunch of positive vibes your way!”
Beyonce is no stranger to sharing photos of her young daughter, but it may come as a surprise to some to see a celebrity of her status being such a hands-on mother. From tropical vacations to Ice Cream Museum trips, Bey does it all with Blue in tow. And she has the photos to prove it.
In fact, fans once accused Queen Bey of faking her pregnancy with Blue Ivy as rumors of surrogacy surfaced. People reported on the drama as Beyonce shut down the speculation during an interview.
“A stupid rumor, the most ridiculous rumor I’ve ever had about me. To think that I would be that vain…”
Just in case people still believed she used a gestational surrogate, Bey detailed how giving birth changed her life.
“[Giving birth] is the most powerful thing you can ever do in your life.”
To dispel any would-be rumors this time around, Beyonce is said to be baring her baby bump for the camera as much as possible. TMZ stated Bey is showcasing her growing belly to prove she is indeed pregnant.
“She took a ton of shots showing off the twins growing inside of her… some topless, some underwater, some with Blue Ivy. You gotta remember all the rumors when she was pregnant the first time — conspiracy theorists insisted a surrogate did all they heavy lifting.”
Of course, Blue Ivy is also featured in her mother’s maternity shoot as TMZ recapped Bey’s February pregnancy photos. However, Bey did sporadically give fans a glimpse at her family life before the maternity posts showing Blue as a sister-to-be.
The trio posed in their Halloween costumes last October as the public enjoyed seeing Jay Z and Blue Ivy alongside the singer. Beyonce may be making a point to spend more time with her daughter now, though, as she prepares to become a mother of three any day now.
Fans now eagerly await the moment Beyonce shares photos of all three of her children after announcing her second pregnancy in February.
