4. The Beyoncé photo shoot.

When Beyoncé announced that she was pregnant on February 1, the viral photo shoot spawned many reactions and memes. It also inspired Australian author Zoë Foster Blake's own baby announcement. She wrote on Instagram, "When @beyonce and I fell pregnant at the exact same time, we were so happy. We made a best friend pact to announce the news with high-concept, oversaturated floral imagery and mismatched lingerie on the SECOND of February. But not only did my 'best friend' announce her pregnancy on the FIRST of February, she added an extra baby to make sure HER announcement was more special. Unfortunately, as you can see, news of her betrayal came through mid-photo shoot, but you get the gist."
