In case you've been hiding under a social media-free rock for the past few hours (in which case, kudos), you'll have learned that all-round superstar Beyoncé is expecting twins, revealing the happy news in an Instagram post.

The said post is now officially the most-liked Instagram ever, with a cool 8.1 million likes and counting (sorry, Selena - you only have 6.3 million). It garnered more than 7 million likes in just 24 hours, so you could say it has broken the Internet (sorry, Kim).

Managing to out-Beyoncé herself with the surprise announcement, this revelation has made us excited, happy and a little bit emotional - and it seems that us mere mortals aren't alone in feeling this way, as the great and the good of the entertainment industry have rushed to send messages of congratulation to the singer and her husband, Jay-Z.

It seems that no matter how crazily successful a star might be, we still share one thing in common with our favourite celebrities: we all worship at the altar of Queen B. Here are some of the funniest and most heartfelt A-list reactions...

Ellen DeGeneres

Ever the joker, Ellen decided to join in the fun with a hilarious (and remarkably well-executed) parody post. Congrats on the Photoshop skills!

Bey's little sister Solange shared her excitement on her Instagram Story: she decorated Bey's post with butterfly and rainbow emojis and the words, 'proud auntie'.


The singer (who is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label) chose to regram the by-now iconic Instagram post with a congratulatory shout-out to Bey and 'big brother' Jay.

Chrissy Teigen

Our Twitter favourite Chrissy jokingly reminded us that hey, she's kind of a big deal on social media, before posting a sweet message to the singer. 'Hive forever' indeed.

Brie Larson

In one tweet, replete with emoji, Brie managed to sum up what we're all thinking and feeling right now. Oh, the emotion.

Tina Knowles

Bey's mother Tina is pretty happy - not to mention relieved that she can finally share the news. Imagine having to keep news like that under wraps, though...


The actress, who appeared alongside Beyoncé in her visual album Lemonade, described the announcement photo as 'radiant.' Can't argue with that.

Hailey Baldwin

Same, Hailey. Same.

Millie Bobby Brown

Millie Bobby Brown took to Instagram to share her excitement, posting a still from Bey's video for 'If I Were a Boy' from her album I Am...Sasha Fierce. 12-year-old Millie would have been only 4-years-old when this album came out, proving that Bey has captured the hearts of all ages.

Issa Rae

Making this suggestion so you don't have to, Insecure star Issa had some very original name ideas for the second and third Carter-Knowles children.

Bryce Dallas Howard

Labelling Bey her #WomanCrushWednesday, actress Bryce reminded us that this is pretty much the best news we've heard all year. In fact, we'd actually forgotten how to respond to good news...

Rita Ora

Rita Ora's Instagram post mirrored exactly how we're feeling: 'YAY!!!!!!'

Piers Morgan

And in the most surprising turn of events, Piers Morgan in 'actually being nice about something' shocker!
