Today, Beyoncé took to Instagram to relieve us all (if only momentarily) of the crushing weight of the United States's oppressive new regime with a baby announcement. To top it all off, she's having twins! The photo sees a veiled Bey rubbing her now-protruding waistline amongst a bed of flowers. Did you expect anything less?

The accompanying caption reads: "We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. - The Carters"

It's obviously too early to know what the singer will name her future offspring, but it will definitely be hard to top a name as unique as Blue Ivy. "Blue" is supposedly inspired by an excerpt from Rebecca SoInit's A Field Guide to Getting Lost, and "Ivy" inspired by the dotting parents' fondness for the number 4, or in roman numerals IV.

Here's another important question: how in the world is Beyoncé going to be able to headline Coachella while also very pregnant? That's not to say it's impossible, and the singer has performed pregnant before, but twins can't be easy to carry around. Even if she rolls out in a wheelchair, Beyonce is bound to give one hell of a performance.

Congrats, Bey!
