Beyoncé Off For Maternity Leave?

The Lemonade singer broke several records on social media with her twin’s pregnancy earlier this year. Certainly, it was no less than breaking news for the start of 2017.  Her Instagram picture set a new record for the most -liked photo of all time at 6.4 million likes and counting. No one had the faintest thought the singer was pregnant, let alone with twins.

Following to her doctor’s order she is taking off from Coachella at least. It is still not known whether she will continue with her other projects or not for the time being. Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z have a daughter Blue Ivy Carter, born on January 7, 2012. In fact, their announcement of first pregnancy was also quite special. They broke the news at MTV Video Music Awards and the news was listed in Guinness World Records for most tweets per second recorded for a single event.

For now, fans can stay assured for a wonderful fest coming up ahead. Lady Gaga can definitely pull off Coachella in a fabulous way.
