Sporting a pair of silver reindeer antlers, the singer posed in front of a huge Christmas tree while striking several different poses.
Following Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement on Wednesday, fans have been quick to jump on the December shot, with some speculating they can see a small baby bump, while others take her two finger salute as a sure signal for twins.
One fan speculated: ‘I didn’t pay attention until now. And the peace sign must’ve been a hint at the twins. She’s the queen of hidden messages.’
Another excitedly commented: ‘So it wasn’t a peace sigh, it was a two babies signal,’ while a third fan was wrote: ‘OMG is it just me or can you can actually see a baby bump.’
‘Bey giving hints the entire time,’ sighed another Instagram follower.
‘She was hinting back in December!’ another fan claimed, while another wondered if they could see a bump under the singer’s dress, adding ‘she might be due April.’
‘You can KIND of see that blue dress has a low bump facing the front,’ one wrote. ‘I don’t know about the side view though.’
Meanwhile, it seems the singer’s pregnancy was even a surprise to her own father.
Matthew Knowles revealed to The Insider that he learned the news along with the rest of the world.
‘I was shocked,’ he told the U.S. website. ‘I got a first text, and I was like, “Why is this person saying congratulations?” Then I get a second text from one of my students at Texas Southern, and I was like, “What are you talking about?” He was like, “Go to the web.” I didn’t know myself.’
