Within a matter of minutes, the image had garnered more than 1 million likes.
It also inspired Sharon Kellaway, who gave birth to her own twins Senan and Zoe in February, to recreate Beyonce’s photograph shoot in her own backyard:
Kellaway, 40, from Cork, told the Irish news website Independent.ie that she wanted to poke fun at the pop star’s picture because “she looked so unrealistic.”
“I wonder how many photos Beyoncé had to get through to get the right one,” she wrote on Facebook. “My 6 year old (Megan) took the photos... no qualifications and still did a mighty job.”
Kellaway, who has two other children aged 7 and 9, told the DailyEdge.ie website that she “never expected” her post to go viral and resonate around the world.
“It was just random. I have the twins, the blanket and the veil, a few home-grown flowers in the garden,” she told Mirror Online. “I had what she had, so why not?”
