As the whole world is now aware that Beyonce welcomed a new pair of twins into the world last month and has set Instagram on fire with yet another set of flawless maternity photos. Nothing is ever as glamorous as it appears online, though, and a few real-life parents and new moms are proving it by staging down-to-earth maternity photoshoots with their kids.

It all started when Irish mom Sharon Kellaway, who also recently gave birth to twins, posted her best attempt at a recreation of Queen Bey’s latest portrait. The Internet loved her brutally honest spoof on the perfect, heavy on photo editing scenes that routinely earn Beyonce and other celebrities millions of likes, and it inspired other parents with little kids to plunge forward with their own Carter Family mock-ups showing the whole ugly truth of raising kids. It’s pretty much the best thing to happen since ordinary people posed for romance novel covers.

Follow the entire hilarious story below, and let us know who did it better!
