(Newser) – Beyonce followed up the Instagram photo announcing her pregnancy with twins (which quickly became the most-liked Instagram post ever) with many, many more photos—some of them nude—posted to her website Wednesday. Accompanying the pictures, which span not just her current pregnancy but her pregnancy with Blue Ivy, her entire relationship with Jay Z, and even photos of her own mother and grandmother, was a poem she commissioned from poet Warsan Shire, per the Root. Most notable line of the poem: "I have three hearts." Meanwhile, media outlets are pulling whatever they can from the information available to them. People, for example, looks at Beyonce's pregnancy announcement for clues that she's carrying one boy and one girl (a pastel pink bow on her bra and baby blue underwear), while E! considers the symbolism of the announcement.

What symbolism? Well, for starters, Beyonce has made it very clear that her favorite number, 4, is incredibly meaningful to her, and she announced her pregnancy on Feb. 1, 2017. That's 2+1+2+0+1+7, which equals 13, and 1+3 equals 4. TMZ, however, is more interested in the actual news surrounding Beyonce's pregnancy—most notably, the fact that her headlining performance at the Coachella music festival may be in jeopardy, depending on how far along she is. (The gossip site refers to it as a "high-risk pregnancy," given the fact that Beyonce is 35, she's carrying multiples, and her pregnancy with Blue Ivy was difficult and required bed rest.) Goldenvoice, the event producer, was unaware of Beyonce's pregnancy until organizers read about it online, TMZ says. A source connected to Beyonce says, assuming all goes well, she still plans to headline Coachella.
