She looked…amazing, but many parents were quick to point out that “regular” folks don’t look quite that stunning after the chaos of giving birth. So they showed what they would look like in that same gorgeous setting.
Here was Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement, first off.
She looks about as great as a person can when they’re many months into their pregnancy.
But when Queen B posted a similar shot in Malibu holding her twins, parents weren’t quite so quick to let it slide.
I mean, who looks this good naturally so soon after birth?
I guess having a support structure in place does wonders for your rest.
As you can see, when parents drop their real-life photos into Beyonce’s backdrop, things get a lot less magical really quickly.
Fortunately, they don’t look any less happy, but the “beauty” aspect collides with the real world responsibilities of raising kids on your own.
This is an equal-opportunity effort, so even dads got in on the action!
At one year old, these kids might be slightly better-behaved, but they’re also a lot heavier.
Some of the models-in-training couldn’t even muster the energy to get out of bed.
Or even wake up! It’s an equally cute pic, but lacks the elegance of the original, wouldn’t you agree?
