Beyoncé is going all out when it comes to announcing the upcoming birth of her twin babies. On the first day of Black History Month, the Houston singer broke the internet when she announced that she was pregnant with twins by posting a photo on Instagram; but this morning the Beyhive woke up not only to more photos of the singer but also to a poem by Warsan Shire.

Shire’s poems and adaptations, including “For Women Who Are Difficult to Love,” “The Unbearable Weight of Staying (the End of the Relationship)” and “Nail Technician as Palm Reader,” were featured on Lemonade, and Shire also helped with the visual album.

From the looks of Beyoncé’s maternity shoot, no corners were cut. With shots of Beyoncé looking all buoyant underwater and others featuring Blue Ivy, the singer gives fans an intimate look at her burgeoning belly and a lot of skin.

I just can’t wait to see how people attempt to duplicate these photos for their own pregnancy announcements.
