Long live Queen Bey!

After shocking the world on Wednesday with a pregnancy announcement like no other, Beyoncé can now claim another achievement: having the most-liked Instagram photo ever.

As of press time, the 35-year-old singer's pregnancy reveal post has more than 8 million likes in less than 24 hours!

Let's gaze upon it again, shall we?


This new record knocked previous title holder Selena Gomez's Coca-Cola Instagram ad, which held the record with 6.3 million likes.

Bey also revealed that not only are she and Jay expecting, but they're going to have twins! That's right — Blue Ivy is going to be a big sister to two little ones.

“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,” the Grammy winner captioned the pic, which shows her surrounded by flowers and revealing her bare belly, wearing only a bra, blue panties and a green veil.

Although expected to deliver the twins sometime this year, Bey will headline Coachella in April and perform at the Grammys on Feb. 12.

"She announced it this way before Grammy fittings and rehearsals, as she knew it would get out," a source told Us Weekly. "She couldn't repeat the same debut on the show like the [2011] VMAs and didn't want it to take away from her Grammy wins and performance."

This was a reference to the time Bey announced her pregnancy with the future Blue Ivy by debuting her baby bump at the 2011 VMAs. (As if you could forget.)

Since announcing her pregnancy, fans and celebs alike have been rejoicing at the news and we can't blame them.

Bey's twins can't get here soon enough!
