Looks like Beyoncé really can do
just about anything — like make you famous overnight.
The "Formation" singer, 34, recently returned home to her native Texas to attend the funeral of her Uncle Skip, and you know, just casually made dreams come true for one lucky, genetically blessed woman. Otherwise known as "Beyoncé's hot cousin."
After this photo was posted to Instagram, on March 19, the Internet went wild. Jay Z's better half posed for a pic with sisters Kelsi Leggett (left) and Kristin Douglas (right), who were first thought to be Bey's cousins. Shortly after, Douglas and her booty caught the attention of, well, thousands.
She later clarified to TMZ that she is not in fact the cousin of the famous singer, but she and sister Kelsi are the goddaughters of Uncle Skip.
Upon posting the pic, Douglas, a self-described nurse with two children, went from an undiscovered identity to an online sensation. Her Instagram following skyrocketed from a mere 2k to now 87k and counting. Twitter and Instagram goers were quick to point out Douglas' gorgeous looks and "bootylicious" figure.
Take a look at what some users who discovered the photo had to say.

I don't know, but what's Beyoncé's cousin Instagram handle; the pretty one with the blue dress?— Crème de la crème (@rosebeton) March 21, 2016
When you find out Beyoncé ain't even the baddest cousin.— Tender Roni (@ZeeNTheCity) March 20, 2016
It may come as a surprise to some that the social media success hasn't been discovered until now. In the past, Douglas has posted Beyoncé memes to her Instagram page referencing Blue Ivy and Yoncé herself, but has managed to fly under the radar.
Now five days later and 85k followers plus, the blue dress beauty has garnered the attention of some higher profile fans — rappers and nightclubs. According to TMZ, during an appearance on TMZ Live this past Wednesday, Douglas revealed that a bunch of clubs want her to appear (for a price) and rappers have also inquired.
As for what she thinks about all of her new found fame? Her and her sister are blown away by the reaction, says the website.
So what lesson can we take away from this? All you need to be famous is a picture with Beyoncé, blessed genes and the perfect outfit to accentuate your greatest assets.
