Ring The Alarm: Beyoncé's Pregnancy Announcement Broke A World Record

Make room, Selena.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter can add one more jewel to her crown ― she’s now the queen of Instagram.

After revealing a second pregnancy that would make two additions to the Carter family with an artful photo Wednesday, Guinness World Records announced Beyoncé had amassed the most likes on any post to the social media platform. And she did it in under eight hours.

As previously noted, Beyoncé is the undisputed queen of pregnancy announcements.

By bringing the world some good news in a time filled with so many angry headlines, the singer crushed the previous record-holder, Selena Gomez, by over one million likes as of publication time.

Gomez’ photo, posted in June, shows her posing for Coca-Cola with the caption, “when your lyrics are on the bottle.” (Last summer, Coke announced it would be adorning its packaging with lyrics from many different artists.)

Beyoncé adds this world record to her two others. Per Guinness, she has received the most Grammy nominations by a female artist (62) and holds the title for the first artist-owned streaming service, with husband Jay Z, for Tidal.

And yes, she’s still set to headline both the April 15 and April 22 lineups during the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California.
