Beyoncé Shows Off Twin Bump At Baby Shower

A very pregnant Beyoncé stripped down to a bikini top and long skirt during her Beverly Hills baby shower Saturday — with no qualms about showing off her twin-sized baby bump.

The 35-year-old mega-celebrity, who has yet to reveal the gender or due date of the babies-to-be, has decorated her massive belly with a large henna tattoo, as these photos from her star-studded shower show.

Guests included La La Anthony and tennis goddess Serena Williams, who is also pregnant. Beyoncé’s ex-Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, also attended.

Proud mom Tina Knowles Lawson led guests in hollering “Happy Carter push party!” — a shout-out to Beyoncé’s married name: Mrs. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. The couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was born in 2012. Beyoncé caused a sensation when she announced in February — to her 92 million Instagram followers — that she is pregnant with twins.

The singer, who is expecting twins with her hubby Jay Z, is not shy about sharing maternity photos with her fans. In fact, Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement was a gorgeous Instagram shot of herself baring her belly while sitting on a bed of flowers.

Bey’s Instagram account is full of stunning photos that prove she’s a bombshell basically all the time. In particular, one clip from earlier this month shows the singer in a form-fitting dress highlighting her pregnancy curves.

Beyoncé and Jay Z have not revealed the sex of their babies, however, according to the singer’s father, Mathew Knowles, the couple may be expecting a boy and a girl.

“Blue Ivy’s going to have brothers and sisters,” the 65-year-old shared with CBS’s “The Insider” in February.

He then recovered from the slip, saying: “Oh, I don’t know. I just kinda threw that out, ’cause I didn’t know if it’s a boy or a girl so you have to say brother and sister.”

According to ET Online, the couple’s twins are reportedly due in June.

Though the final numbers have yet to be tallied, it’s already clear that the Women’s March trumped the inauguration figures. Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, America Ferrera, and Uzo Aduba, were among those at the Washington D.C. march.

“We are mothers, we are caregivers, we are artists, we are activists,” Keys told the crowd. “We are entrepreneurs, doctors, leaders of industry and technology. Our potential is unlimited. We rise!” Keys also performed “Girl on Fire,” while Monae shared the stage with the Mothers of the Movement, and performed “Hell You Talmbout” off her 2013 album, The Electric Lady.

Ferrerra also shared a powerful address with the crowd. “It’s been a heart-wrenching time to be a woman and an immigrant in this country,” said the 32-year-old actress. “Our dignity, our character, our rights have all been under attack and a platform of hate and division assumed power yesterday. But the president is not America. His cabinet is not America. Congress is not America, we are America and we are here to stay.” – See more at:

Oxfam cited Forbes’ March 2016 billionaires list to substantiate their claim. In order, the 8 men that control half the world’s wealth are Microsoft founder Bill Gates whose net worth is $75 billion; Amancio Ortega, the Spanish founder of Inditex; Warren Buffett; Carlos Slim Helu; Jeff Bezos of Amazon; Mark Zuckerberg; Oracle’s Larry Ellison; and Michael Bloomberg.

Oxfam warns that this kind of economic inequality will inevitably lead to more drastic and extreme political changes, like the United States’ election of Donald Trump and Britain’s vote to leave the EU.

Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International, said, “It is obscene for so much wealth to be held in the hands of so few when 1 in 10 people survive on less than $2 a day. Inequality is trapping hundreds of millions in poverty; it is fracturing our societies and undermining democracy.”

Thank you.. and I’m doing well.. Al Hamdu lillah.”
