The style of the image, in which Beyonce stands in a garden barefoot in front of a floral archway, echoes the photoshoot she used to announce her pregnancy on the network. That post, in February, became the most-liked in the history of Instagram.
The world had been eagerly awaiting the first glimpse of the babies ever since media reported Beyonce had given birth last month.
While Kim Kardashian was stuck in Los Angeles awaiting the birth of their first child due next month, Kanye West was due to appear at the Governor’s Ball on Sunday night.
The couple reportedly received some generous gifts from millionaire friends Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow.
They both declined invitations to Kim Kardashian’s baby shower but instead sent some pricey gifts to the reality star in their absence.
“Both Gwyneth and Beyonce politely declined Kim’s offer of attending her baby shower. Beyonce is busy touring and Gwyneth doesn’t really know Kim that well,” a source told the Sunday Mirror.
“But Beyonce and Jay Z [gave her] a $15,000 Swarovski crystal-studded high chair designed by Carla Monchen.”
Health nut Gwyneth Paltrow – who shares the same fitness trainer as Kim Kardashian – sent a typically health-conscious gift option.

“Gwyneth sent six-month-pregnant Kim a $550 Vitamix blender and 21-day cleanse,” the source alleged. No doubt with the good intentions of helping Kim Kardashian bounce back into shape.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian while has struggled with trying to please everybody in the fashion world since becoming pregnant even sister Khloe recently admitted that the floral dress she wore to the Met Gala was a bad choice.
The dress had been widely mocked, with Robin Williams hilariously claiming that he “wore it better” as Mrs. Doubtfire in the 1993 movie.
When asked what she thought of the dress, Khloe Kardashian said: “I think Kim is beautiful. I wish, like, the gloves…”
She added: “I just felt like it was too covered somehow, just because her body, her b**bs, her belly, just all looked like one.”
Khloe Kardashian recently admitted that she was “offended” by Kim and Kourtney’s decision not to tell her Kim was pregnant.
Khloe Kardashian said: “I found out by watching Kourtney and Kim Take Miami that Kourtney said, <<This is going to push Khloe over the edge and we can’t tell her>>. I got offended by that.”
She added: “Of course I would be happy for my sister to have a baby.”
Kim Kardashian stepped out of Mr. C restaurant with Brittney Gastineau as boyfriend Kanye West celebrated his 36th birthday in New York.
While Beyonce and Jay-Z were on hand at the party in New York City, Kanye West’s girlfriend of more than one year was noticeably absent – stuck in Los Angeles because she is no longer able to travel by plane ahead of the birth of their first child next month.

New reports claim Beyonce is pregnant with baby No 2.
Recent pictures show Beyonce with a rounded tummy on stage in London.
And another report claims the singer’s much derided Met Gala look was designed to conceal her growing pregnancy figure.
Beyonce – who welcomed her first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, into the world in January 2012 – is said to be expecting again with her rapper husband Jay-Z.
The New York Post claims “multiple sources” told them Beyonce, 31, is pregnant following her attendance at the star-studded Met Ball last week, where the star’s rumored pregnancy was the talk of the night.
Beyonce is reportedly pregnant with baby No 2
The singer is said to have “carefully” hidden her baby bump in a high-waisted Givenchy gown, but according to the report, multiple photos have surfaced of Beyonce sporting a growing stomach on her 65-date Mrs. Carter Show world tour, which touched down in Dublin, Ireland, on Sunday.
Cuban police were called to keep the crowds at bay after Beyonce and husband Jay-Z were mobbed in Havana.
Beyonce and Jay-Z were celebrating their 5th wedding anniversary in Havana when they were surrounded by dozens of well-wishers.
The law enforcement officers arrived at the renowned restaurant La Guarida on Wednesday night.
Their bodyguards’ presence outside set the gritty, bustling neighborhood of Centre Havana abuzz, and a crowd gathered downstairs shouting Beyonce’s name until she went to a balcony and waved.
Waitress Silvia Fernandez said Beyonce toured the eatery and looked at photos of past celebrity clients including Jack Nicholson, Jodie Foster, Danny Glover, Will Smith and James Belushi.
“She was beautiful, without a drop of makeup, very natural,” Silvia Fernandez said.
“What happened with the people was incredible.”

Police arrived and made sure Beyonce was able to exit without incident.
Beyonce, 31, cut a striking image, with her hair styled into cornrows.
She was wearing a patterned yellow ensemble which showed off her legs while rapper Jay-Z, 43, looked like the quintessential tourist in shorts, a blue T-shirt and hat.
La Guarida staffers showed The Associated Press pictures of the two dining on typical Cuban creole favourites – fish, chicken, black beans and rice – accompanied by their mothers.
The privately run restaurant is famous as the filming location for the hit movie Strawberry and Chocolate, and is a mainstay on Havana’s tourist circuit.
Beyonce and Jay-Z – who married in Paris on April 4, 2008 – toured colonial Old Havana wearing dark glasses and were surrounded by bodyguards and excited fans.
She posed for pictures with local schoolchildren while Jay-Z puffed on a Cuban cigar, and then they popped into another restaurant that boasts a rooftop terrace with a sweeping view of the harbour.
Beyonce and Jay-Z declined to speak to reporters, and it was not clear why they travelled to Cuba. State-run website CubaSi called it a tourist trip.
Washington’s 51-year embargo makes it illegal for US citizens to visit Cuba for mere tourism, although tens of thousands of Americans travel there each year on academic, religious, journalistic or cultural exchange visas.
The Obama administration eased many of the restrictions in 2011, but tourists still need a special visa or to be part of an organized tour.
In the past, artists who were challenged by the government have said they visited for cultural purposes.
For years Beyonce and Jay Z were famously secretive about their lives, refusing even to acknowledge their relationship.
But it appears that the birth of daughter Blue Ivy has led to a new chapter in their lives, with Beyonce happily opening up her family album on Tumblr.
Beyonce revealed intimate snaps from behind the scenes of her public and private life.
They included images of her bottle feeding her daughter, larking around with her husband and posing with her entourage in front of a private jet.
And while not so off-duty that she has anything other than a full face of makeup, the shots provide a rare glimpse into Beyonce’s world.
They come as she is about to star in a new documentary film about her life and career, a large step for the private 30-year-old.

One of the photos shows Beyonce taking a quiet moment to feed her daughter. Little Ivy Blue, born in January, is seen with her back to the camera, wearing a “Watch The Throne” shirt, advertising her father’s tour with Kanye West.
The tot hungrily drinks from a bottle held in her mother’s manicured hand, as she is cradled in her arms.
Another picture shows Beyonce screaming with laughter as her husband pushes her on a swing.
She wears a long flowing pink maxi dress which billows up around her as Jay Z pushes, their dog at his heels.
Another off duty moment shows her riding a bike through deserted streets. While the setting is low key Beyonce looks anything but, showing she is still the pop star with her bright lipstick, long toned legs, huge styled hair and designer boots.
Giving a glimpse into her privileged lifestyle the multiple Grammy winner also includes a few shots of her private jet, grinning with her all-female entourage as they strike poses in front of the building.
Other images behind the scenes of her successful tour, with the singer filling up at a food truck or on the scene of a music video.
Beyonce also posted a snap of the sight that greets her onstage, with thousands of screaming fans all blurring into one impressive vista.
Despite her role as a new mother Beyonce has a busy year ahead. Along with her documentary, album and tour, she is also attached to several film roles.
These include a remake of A Star Is Born, directed by Clint Eastwood, and the animated film Epic, in which Beyonce will voice the character Queen Tara.
