“Boy, oh boy. I was thinking there is a lot going on in the world right now — a whole lot,” DeGeneres, 59, said on Wednesday. “I could talk about what happened on The Bachelor, for instance, I could talk about what the president tweeted, but I’m not gonna do that. Instead, I’m gonna talk about the most important story of the year. Beyoncé is pregnant.”
Last week, DeGeneres Photoshopped her head onto Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement photo. On Wednesday, she poked fun at how the “Formation” singer posed with a veil on her head and bared her belly in front of a floral backdrop.
“By the looks of that photo, she’s pregnant with our savior,” DeGeneres said. “This is true, y’all — before Beyoncé sat down to take that photo, these flowers were a dead pile of leaves and branches. As soon as she sat there, they came alive.”
The baby bump photo has since become Instagram’s most liked post ever. “[This] also could be an ad for 1-800-Flowers, I think,” DeGeneres added. “If she wants to make a little extra cash, she could call them.”
After her initial pregnancy announcement, the multi-Grammy winner went on to release an entire photo album of baby bump and throwback family pics. In one snapshot, she sat on top of a wrecked car while cradling her belly. “Now, I heard that when you’re pregnant it does weird things to your body, but it destroys your car. It’s terrible what happened to that…” DeGeneres joked.
Beyoncé also posed for several gorgeous photos underwater. “See, celebrities are just like us,” DeGeneres said. “They swim wearing golden scarves in their pools of roses floating.”
