After Beyoncé announced last week she is pregnant with twins via an artistic maternity photo, in which she showcases her baby bump in lingerie and a veil amid a floral display, scores of people online rushed to parody the pic.
On Friday, Grey’s Anatomy joined the run.
Ellen Pompeo, who is making her directorial debut by helming an episode of the show, pretending to direct pregnant co-star Camilla Luddington to spoof Beyoncé’s maternity photo. The actress is expecting her first child. She posted a video of the parody, which was actually directed by co-star and frequent Grey’s Anatomy director Debbie Allen.
“I just feel a little bit weird. Don’t you think you’re taking this directing thing too far?” Luddington asks, looking uncomfortable.
“No, you look amazing. You’re glowing,” Pompeo says. “Isn’t she glowing?”
“Yes!” people around them reply.
“Okay, veil!” Pompeo orders.
A short black veil is then dumped on Luddington’s head as she continues to look uncomfortable.
“Amazing!” Pompeo says. “Great! I love it.”
The actress later wrote on Instagram, “We can’t help but act a fool#welovebeyonce filmed and directed by @therealdebbieallen @camillaluddington@hairtheshaway #greysanatomy.”
