The Beyhive is buzzing with the news that Beyonce and Jay Z’s babies have arrived. Music’s greatest couple reportedly welcomed their twins earlier this week!
Multiple sources have confirmed the exciting baby news to US Weekly. Bey, 35, and Jay Z, 47, “are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends,” a source tells People.
One of those family members — Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles — has apparently confirmed the twins’ arrival in a congratulatory tweet:
There is no official word yet on the sex of the twins, but a few hints have been circulating on social media. Blue and pink balloons were seen being delivered to a Los Angeles area hospital with a card that read “B & J” on Friday. While former U.S. President Barack Obama might have also given a clue in a recent speech he made honouring his friend Jay.
Jay Z became the first hip hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame late last week, but understandably couldn’t make it to the ceremony. Obama’s video speech could reveal the answer we’ve all been waiting for: “Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s gonna have me beat once those two twins show up.”
While they’re keeping everyone guessing on the gender of the newest Carters, one thing is for certain – Jay Z is bound to have his best Father’s Day yet on Sunday!
The “Formation” songstress revealed she was expecting twins — and broke the Internet — back in February when she posted a photo of herself on Instagram displaying her ample baby bump, writing: “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters.”
Queen Bey’s pregnancy announcement was a record-setter on social media, racking up more than 6.3 million likes within eight hours of its posting (it currently boasts more than 11 million, and more than a half-million comments), and elicited more than 500,000 tweets within 45 minutes.
Complications arose, however, regarding her scheduled headlining gig at Coachella in April. Due to the pregnancy, Beyonce was forced to drop out of the festival (but will instead be headlining in 2018), and Lady Gaga took her place.
Take a look below at the couple’s happiest moments as a family with Blue Ivy, 5, so far! The new big sister is no doubt having double the fun doting over her brand new siblings.
