This Couple's Pregnancy Picture Proves Everything Really Is Better Under The Sea

"Did we slay or did we SLAYYY?!?"

An engaged couple, Jasmine and Marcus, recently made waves with an underwater maternity photo shoot that both Beyoncé and The Little Mermaid could envy.


Expecting their child in August, the Houston-based couple decided to commemorate the moment with some extravagant and ethereal pictures.

According to BuzzFeed News, Jasmine loves to "do things differently," so when she was planning the photo shoot, she knew she had to do something unexpected. Not only was the result certainly uniques, but it made quite the splash when Jasmine's niece posted the picture to her Twitter, where it has since received more than 41,000 retweets and 142,000 likes

While some Twitter users have called the maternity photo "extra," hundreds of thousands of people couldn't get enough of it. "There was an outpouring of love and appreciation for the photo and, of course, there was negativity, but overall, the photo received a great deal of love," she told the publication. 

Whatever criticism Jasmine and Marcus's photo may have received didn't deter Jasmine from captioning her own Twitter post, "Did we slay or did we SLAYYY?!?" If we had to ask Beyoncé — to whom Jasmine's picture was compared to by one Twitter user — we think she'd say the latter. 

"I had never in life seen a response to something that my fiancé and I considered so 'normal'," she added of the unexpected social media attention. 

Well, if this is what Jasmine and Marcus consider 'normal,' we can't wait to see what they'll do for their newborn photo shoot.
