Beyoncé's glamorous African baby shower


From trademarking the name of their firstborn and babymooning in Bora Bora to sporting a henna-tatooed baby bump, no-one does family like the Carters. 

And ever since her now infamous pregnancy announcement on 1 February — which, at 11 million likes, is officially the most-liked image in Instagram's history— we've been on Bey-babies watch.

And in true Beyoncé fashion, the mom-to-be slayed the baby shower game at the aptly named "Carter Push Party" held Saturday 20 May.

The chic mama chose an African theme, and rocked an intricate henna tattoo on her growing belly, a tribal printed two-piece and matching head wrap.  

Hubby Jay Z kept it minimal in a suave all-white look, but stayed on theme with kufi and medallion. 

Little Blue Ivy also got to celebrate at the party with some of her friends. 

The event was attended by the singer's mom Tina and sister Solange, along with a few famous friends – including fellow mom-to-be Serena Williams, and former Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. 

The couple have not disclosed the sex or due date of their new arrivals.

According to the Daily Mail UK, Beyoncé may have hinted, ever so subtly, that she'll be having twins boys when she wore certain earrings. A little far fetched perhaps but in any case, by the looks of things, the world might be welcoming the Carter twins pretty soon.

Here's a look at the A-list baby shower event!
