Thanks to the paparazzi, we're used to seeing candid snapshops of everything from the mundane (getting coffee!) to the glam (red carpet events) when it comes to celebrities. But it's rare that a star invites us to peek at her own personal photo album -- which is just another reason why we heart Beyonce.
The singer-dancer-actress and new mama to Blue Ivy recently revealed intimate pictures via Tumblr, and we can't get over this sweet snapshot of Solange Knowles giving her pregnant big sister's belly a loving pat.
It's exactly the kind of capturing-the-moment pregnancy pic I wish I had. Despite having had two chances (and a grand total of 18 months) to document every moment of pregnancy, there are still images -- like this sister-patting-tummy one -- that are missing from my own photo album. (Another example: Nowhere do I have a beautiful black-and-white photo of my son kissing my belly. Sigh.) I feel a tiny twinge of regret when I think about those photographic gaps, but I love looking back on the photos I do have from those becoming-a-mama months -- even the ones where I've got diaper-sized bags under my eyes.
For her sake, I hope Beyonce has more sweet images like this one -- and for our sake, I hope she adds them to her Tumblr.
