It was beaten by 2 million likes.

It was only a matter of time, and it only took seven-plus hours. Beyonce's photo announcement of her second pregnancy — possibly with twins this time, as the internet has widely speculated — has become the most liked Instagram pic of all time.

With nearly 6.4 million likes (and counting), Beyonce surpasses the previous record holder: Selena Gomez, who has scored a staggering 6.305 million likes so far for her post of a Coca-Cola ad featuring her drinking from a bottle with one of her own song lyrics on it. Gomez first claimed the record in July 2016, capturing the benchmark from her onetime romantic partner Justin Bieber.

Beyonce's Instagram post quickly took over the internet on Wednesday afternoon (Feb. 1), with fans in elated shock. Read some of the funniest tweets here.
