Beyoncé shocked the world on Wednesday when she revealed in a baby-bump-baring Instagram post that she is expecting not one, but two younger siblings for Blue Ivy.
Yes, Queen Bey will soon be the mother of twins. But almost as suprising as Beyoncé and Jay Z's big news is the unexpected way in which it was confirmed. In the photo, Bey wears a yellow veil, maroon bra, and some frilly, satin blue panties. She's sitting in front of a floral arrangement and the vibe is generally retro and throwback cool.
Now that we think about it, it's kind of reminiscent of a photo of Sylvia Robinson, the late founding matriarch of Sugarhill Records, from back in the day. As the story goes, Sylvia's photo was taken at the joint birthday party for her sons Leland Robinson Sr. and his big brother, Joey Robinson. They were turning 12 and 16, respectively, and their mother wanted to throw a joint bash since their birthdays were so close together. The party even included a performance from B.T. Express.
Sylvia Robinson's vintage photo looks a lot like Beyoncé's from February 1, 2017.
Admit it, the resemblance is uncanny.
