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.
Beyonce has covered the latest issue of CR Fashion Book and has talked about her daughter Blue Ivy calling her “my biggest muse” in the accompanying interview.

“It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse,” Beyonce says of Blue Ivy.
“There’s someone, we all find out soon, more important than ourselves to lose. I feel a deep bond with young children – all those photos in my dressing room – especially those who’ve been stricken. Children I’ve met across the years – they uplift me like pieces of moon and guide me, whispering in my ear.”
While she doesn’t directly address her husband Jay-Z, Beyonce goes on to reflect on herself, her spirituality, and her stage persona.
Beyonce closed Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards show with an epic nearly 20-minute performance.
She was joined onstage by husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy which brought her to tears, amid numerous divorce rumors.
Beyonce sang and danced in a metallic leotard while Blue Ivy and Jay-Z watched from their seats as the diva declared: “MTV, welcome to my world.”
As the accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at The Forum in Inglewood, California, she kissed her daughter and husband Jay-Z, who called her the “greatest living entertainer.”

“I’m so full. I have nothing to say but I am filled with so much gratitude,” Beyonce told the cheering crowd as they chanted her name repeatedly.
Her performance easily outdid her competition throughout the night, though Beyonce lost video of the year, which instead went to a teary Miley Cyrus who let a homeless man accept her award for video of the year.
It was in sharp contrast to the 2013 VMAs, when Miley Cyrus twerked and danced shockingly onstage.
“Thank y’all, my name is Jesse and I accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now. I know this because I am one of these people,” he said, as Miley Cyrus looked on.
“Though I may have been invisible to you in the streets, I have a lot of the same dreams that brought many of you here tonight.”
Beyonce posted new pictures of herself, husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy at a kart racing facility on her official site amid divorce rumors on August 15.
Beyonce, 32, posed holding her race helmet and getting behind the wheel. She showed off her toned abs in pink short shorts and a matching top, and at one point donned a canary yellow piece of clothing to cover her face.

In another snapshot, Jay-Z, 44, held hands with 2-year-old Blue Ivy as they walked around the indoor racetrack. Blue Ivy wore a white dress and accessorized with pink sandals.
However, Beyonce and Jay-Z’s relationship behind closed doors is quite different than their recent friendly outing.
Last month, Us Weekly reported that Beyonce “is done” with the six-year marriage once they finish their remaining On the Run shows in Paris, France.
Beyonce and Jay-Z reportedly “stayed separately” while in New York and L.A. and she has even been spotted scouting out apartments in Manhattan.
Jay-Z has racked up a long list of reputed romantic dalliances before falling in love with Beyonce.
His first significant girlfriend was Blu Cantrell, an American R&B singer and songwriter, though he has also been linked to singer Missy Elliott, Lil’ Kim and the late Aaliyah, amongst others.
Jay-Z dated Blu Cantrell immediately before Beyonce, and it seems as though she may still be harboring some salty feelings about the way they ended things.

The 37-year-old released a song titled S.O.S (Tell Me Where You At), and in the chorus she can be heard singing: “It’s an S.O.S. Hova, tell me where you at.”
Blu Cantrell apparently dumped Jay-Z and ended the relationship, but it seems as though she still felt as though it was necessary to express her feelings about the way that he treated her during the relationship. In the first verse she dives right into the subject matter of how she felt as though she was a loyal, “down-to-ride” type of girlfriend, but that he didn’t reciprocate the same kind of love.
Jay Z spent thousands of dollars trying to woo her with presents and even caught an attempted murder charge for her, but she dumped him.
Blu Cantrell apparently has another song in her arsenal where she takes shots at Jay-Z for using her name “Blu” to name his and Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy.
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter celebrated her second birthday and her mother shared a picture of Blue Ivy Carter’s new rides – a Cadillac and Ferrari.
Beyonce, 32, posted photos of the mini cars via Tumblr on Friday.
In the photo, Blue Ivy’s new wheels are parked next to one another. Her blue Ferrari is personalized with “Blue Ivy Baby Slab” written on the front windshield, with “BABY SLAB” adorning the black interior seats. Blue Ivy’s shiny pink Cadillac, meanwhile, is twice the size of her sports car. The Fisher-Price toy features gold detailing and cotton candy-colored interior seats.
Blue Ivy Carter’s new rides
Beyonce and Jay-Z marked Blue Ivy’s birthday with a blow-out bash at Jungle Island, an interactive wildlife park and botanical garden in Miami, Florida on January 7.
Blue Ivy’s birthday party included Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, with all the ladies sporting painted faces of butterflies and flowers.
After days of speculation, according to E! News, multiple sources have confirmed to them that Beyoncé is expecting her second child with Jay-Z.
Suspicions were first sparked by the careful camouflage of the Givenchy gown Beyoncé, 31, wore to attend the Met Ball in New York.
The high waisted bodice with a detailed pattern made it hard to see the superstar’s actual shape.
But it was when Beyoncé had to cancel her Mrs. Carter Show performance in Antwerp, Belgium on Tuesday citing “dehydration and exhaustion” that the rumor mill went into overdrive.
Beyoncé recently told ABC News that she “would like more children” and that she feels 16-month-old Blue Ivy could do with some company.
She wore custom, hand beaded white peplum one-piece by designers Ralph & Russo when she took the stage in Antwerp a day after the cancelled concert, and though there was no sign of a bump the fitted corset gave little away.

The New York Post newspaper also claimed that “multiple sources” told them Beyoncé is pregnant following her attendance at the star-studded Met Ball, where the star’s rumored pregnancy was the talk of the night.
Beyoncé is said to have “carefully” hidden her baby bump in the high-waisted Givenchy gown, but multiple photos have since surfaced of the singer sporting a growing stomach on her 65-date Mrs. Carter Show world tour, which touched down in Dublin, Ireland, on Sunday.
Pictures of her on stage in London appear to show an uncharacteristically rounded tummy.
Beyoncé welcomed her first child, daughter Blue Ivy Carter, into the world in January 2012.
The singer and her husband Jay-Z – real name Shawn Carter – remained tight-lipped about her first pregnancy until sensationally announcing it live at the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2011.
New reports claim Beyonce is pregnant with baby No 2.

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 appears to have found joy again after the painful miscarriage she suffered two years ago with daughter Blue Ivy in a leaked image from HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream, which is set to air on Saturday night.
Beyonce is shown gazing lovingly at the one-year-old baby girl, who turned one-year-old on January 7.
In the image from the film, Beyonce, 31, looks bare-faced and glowing, her signature blonde mane styled in tight braids.
Beyonce can be seen looking tenderly at her little tyke, who looks adorable with her brown curls and doe-eyed expression.
Life Is But A Dream, which Beyonce co-directed, is part of a return to performing after a year off since Blue Ivy was born.
The documentary offers an insider’s look at Beyonce’s career and family life. Part of the film shows footage of a sonogram, Beyonce’s growing bump and grainy video of the singer posing nude as she neared her due date.
Beyonce also opens up about the miscarriage kept secret from the public until Jay-Z referred to it in his song Glory, released after their daughter’s birth.
