This mom has gone viral with her real-life version of the star’s baby photo.

July 17, 2017

By now you’ve probably seen the ethereally beautiful photo of Beyoncé with her month-old twins, Sir Carter and Rumi—it’s been liked more than 9 million times on Instagram. The pop diva looks peaceful and oh-so-stylish as she cradles her tiny babes. But Sharon Kellaway, a mom of five-month-old twins in Ireland, earned thousands of laughs (and likes) and the respect of hard-working moms everywhere when she posted her own version of Queen B’s pose, captioning it, “The likeness is uncanny.”

The likeness is uncanny .....

Instead of Beyoncé’s outfit of perfectly draped satin, Sharon has a fleece baby blanket thrown over her shoulders (look closely and you can probably spot some spit-up stains and smashed peas); instead of a perfectly manicured ocean-front setting with sculpted hedges and a profusion of colorful blooms, Sharon squats on an overgrown backyard lawn with weeds and a few random roses. Instead of producing a celebrity photo shoot likely attended by dozens of stylists and assistants, Sharon simply asked her six-year-old daughter Megan to snap a photo while she juggled her two squirmy babies, Senan and Zoe. And while Beyoncé’s lush locks and natural “no-makeup” glow likely took hours to perfect, we think Sharon’s classic wash-and-go mom bangs and “Who-has-time-for-lipstick?” look is just as charming.

When asked what inspired her hilarious yet totally relatable post, Sharon told a reporter, “I just wanted to take the mickey, as she looked so unrealistic.”

We think both versions of the photo are amazing—one to admire and one to relate to.
