Beyonce Gets Naked for Baby Bump Picture Series
After breaking the internet on Wednesday (Feb. 1) with an Instagram snap announcing her second pregnancy -- which broke the record for most-liked Instagram photo -- Beyoncé pulled back the curtain even more on Thursday (Feb. 2) morning.
The "Formation" singer shared a stunning series of photos on her website that gave a closer look at her growing belly.
"Mother is a cocoon where cells spark, limbs form, mother swells and stretches to protect her child," reads a piece of poetry between a shot of Bey floating in water in a gauzy yellow wrap covering everything but her midsection. "Mother has one foot in this world and one foot in the next, mother, black venus" concludes with the phrase, with "I have three hearts" appearing as your cursor floats over the words.
The singer's official site now also features a photo montage of Bey's growing belly during her first pregnancy with now five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, who shows up in another shot where Jay Z and 'Yonce's first-born hands her mommy a flower. In another, Blue Ivy is poised to kiss Beyconé's stomach, while one dramatic black and white image depicts the singer sitting naked on a throne made of leaves while wearing crown of flowers.
Feeling nostalgic, the star also shared a photo of her grandmother holding her own mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, as a baby and a shot of Lawson pregnant with Bey in 1981. "I look at photographs of my mother when she was pregnant with me, does she feel how I feel now?" reads the caption. Among the other pics: a pair of Yankess-branded headphones strapped across the singer's stomach and an alternate take of the original Insta that wowed the world.
