Queen Bey definitely has her own way of sharing news. Her 2013 self-titled “visual album” was released without a peep of promotion, taking the music world– and her fans– by surprise. In 2011, she let the world in on the conception of Blue Ivy at the MTV Video Music Awards when she shed her blazer at the end of a performance, revealing a baby bump. So, is her latest Instagram photo her way of telling us what’s in store for music’s royal family?
The photo, posted on Sunday without any caption, shows Beyonce buried on the beach with a woman’s figure shaped in sand on top of her body… that is, a pregnant woman’s figure.
Is this Beyonce’s way of telling us there’s a new addition to the Carter family to come? With the rest of her Instagram profile depicting high-fashion OOTDs (outfits of the day) and artsy shots of her worldly travels, this peek into a more personal, care-free moment makes a statement regardless.
What do you think of the photo? Any name suggestions? Tweet us at @babynamesdotcom or chime in on our Facebook page.
Watch her 2011 VMA performance of “Love On Top” below, announcing her first baby bump at the 4:30 mark. Jay Z’s face = priceless.
