Until Wednesday last week, this snap of Selena Gómez held the record for most Instagram likes ever.

But that was last week because, let's be honest: Selena looking gorgeous while drinking a Coca-Cola – with that hair, and those nails that haven't done a day's hard graft in their lives – is pretty awesome, but Beyoncé announcing she's pregnant with twins, in the most gloriously over-the-top maternity shoot you'll ever clap your eyes on, is taking things to a whole new level of awesome. 

The announcement arrived at just the right time. A lot of people are feeling pretty miserable about how 2017 is shaping up so far, and some celebrity excitement like this is just the distraction we need from the slow-motion car crash of reality.

Jay Z had something to do with all this too.
