Camilla Luddington is following in Beyoncé’s footsteps – and having fun doing it!
The expecting “Grey’s Anatomy” star recreated Queen Bey’s viral baby bump photo on Friday, with a little help from her co-star. In a video posted to Camilla’s Instagram page, she and Ellen Pompeo team up to parody Bey’s record-breaking pregnancy news down to the very last detail.
Wearing a burgundy bra and baby blue briefs while kneeling atop an extravagant flower arrangement, Camilla expresses mock skepticism about where the shoot is headed. Ellen, in character as the artistic director, reassures Camilla that she’s in good hands. Plus, she adds, the timing is just too good to pass up.
“This is amazing! You’re pregnant at the same time as Beyonce,” Ellen says in the clip, before placing a sheer veil over Camilla’s head for the final touch. “When is that ever going to happen again?”
Ellen also shared her and Camilla’s project on Instagram, giving real director Debbie Allen a shout-out in the caption.
“We can’t help but act a fool,” Ellen wrote, adding the hashtag “#welovebeyonce.”
On Wednesday, the superstar’s announcement that she and husband Jay Z have twins on the way became the most-liked Instagram post in history within hours. Camilla had happy news of her own the following day, revealing on Instagram that she and boyfriend Matthew Alan are expecting a girl.
“I want her to grow up knowing how strong women are,” Camilla wrote of her soon-to-be little one, captioning a photo in which she holds up a “Tomb Raider in Training” baby onesie.
