Beyoncé has announced that she (and the world) have been blessed with two more Bey babies, and the internet has gotten straight to work turning her announcement into some A+ meme content.
Announcing her pregnancy on Instagram today, Beyoncé wrote, “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.”
She also shared this photo, which sees her backed by flowers and covered in a veil:
Social media blew up with congratulatory posts and well-wishes soon after, but fans also went and fired up the meme machine:

A bunch of brands also tried to get in on the action as well, whether the public wanted them to or not.
KFC Australia, for example, tried to market its burgers using Bey’s new bubs…

…while US restaurant chain Denny’s (for some reason) tweeted this hot mess:
wow, bey has TWO buns in the oven! that’s just an expression by the way. please don’t eat those buns. they are babies.

Of course, the internet didn’t forget about Beyoncé’s first-born child, Blue Ivy Carter, who is now five years old. Remember, the one whose existence was announced like this at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2011?
Well, here’s Blue Ivy today:
