The 35-year-old songstress posted the images with the caption: 'I have three hearts' emblazoned across, in reference to her two babies, while giving a rare glimpse into her wedding day, holidays with her family and stunning behind the scenes shots of her life.
In her stunning announcement on Wednesday, Beyonce posed in just a bra and knickers in an ethereal shot while surrounded by flowers and cradling her bump in an Instagram post.
She added a caption, reading: '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.'
After stunning fans with the news, she will now no doubt stun the masses once more with her huge and intimate share of life with the world famous family, who have frequently been guarded in divulging personal insights. In one of the boldest snaps, the beautiful star posed totally naked while gazing intensely into the camera, in an image inspired by Sandro Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus painting, believed to date back to the mid 1490s, and often replicated in pop culture.

While surrounded by flowers and sporting a pair of tights painted with a floral detail, beside her in the image was a statue of Nefertiti, the Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, whose name means the beautiful one has cometh forth.
The bust, replicated in Beyonce's image, is one of the most copied Ancient Egyptian works. The statue is an iconic mark of feminine beauty - making the addition a striking image to the layered shot. Nefertiti is one of the most recognisable and famous women of the ancient world, perhaps in a nod to Beyonce's worldwide fame.

As she slipped underwater, the Crazy In Love hitmaker protected her modesty with just delicate sheaths of material while cradling her stomach once more. It seems the songstress has been documenting her baby journey intimately, as she managed to post a number of shots throughout her pregnancy thus far.
One image saw Beyonce sit atop a red car, in a setting reminiscent to her video for 2016 hit Formation, a track from her controversial album Lemonade, in which she was seen draping herself out of a blue car while spinning around. Away from the present, Beyonce also gave fans a rare insight into the Carter's life - particularly when she shared a series of images of her bump throughout her pregnancy with Blue.

Nine years after their wedding, details of which have previously been closely guarded, Beyonce posted a sweet image of the duo walking away from the altar after saying their vows, after only sharing glimpses of the inside of their nuptials in the past.
Looking phenomenal in a strapless white gown with intricate pleats and a boned bustier, the loved-up beauty threw her arms in the air in exultation while Jay Z clutched her hand and beamed at his new wife's happiness. Only forty guests were invited to the couple’s private ceremony, when they walked the aisle in April 2008. They said their nuptials at the iconic rapper's plush 13,500-sq.-ft. penthouse in Tribeca, New York City.
The lavish ceremony saw Beyonce reportedly arranging to have 70,000 white dendrobium orchids flown in from Thailand. A guest of the couple told People magazine: 'It was a very emotional wedding—lots of crying—and really very spiritual.'
