Queen Bey continues to reign.

According to Instagram, Beyoncé's photo revealing her pregnancy is the first Instagram post to garner more than 7.2 million likes in less than 24 hours.

The superstar singer revealed Wednesday that she is expecting twins with a photo of her sporting a baby bump.

It only took her 11 hours to surpass Selena Gomez, whose 2016 photo of herself and a bottle of Coke was the most liked with more than 6.3 million.

Gomez took the title from former boyfriend Justin Bieber.

Beyoncé released more pregnancy photos on her site in an album titled "I have three hearts."

The new photos quickly hit social media.

There was also plenty of chatter about possible names.

Online betting company Betfair said, "Indie and Isaiah are the early 10/1 favourites as Beyoncé was raised in a religious household and Destiny's Child, where she began her career, was named from a passage in the Book of Isaiah."
