Jay Z and Beyoncé Have Reportedly Welcomed Their Twins to the World, One Boy and One Girl

By  | 

CNN reports that Beyoncé and Jay Z are new parents to two more Carters after welcoming their twins into the world early last week.

According to TMZ, the king and queen of hip hop and R&B welcomed one boy and one girl Monday (June 12). What could be a better Father’s Day gift to Jay than delivering making him a father again to two more times over! Yes, 5-year-old Blue Ivy is officially the older sister to two siblings now.

Although Beyoncé is speculated to have given birth on Monday, it has also been said that the twins are still in the hospital due to a “minor issue.” Complications during birth are rare in this day and age, but not uncommon. With multiples, hospitals sometimes need to monitor the babies after birth to ensure that everything is alright. Despite these concerns, however, TMZ also says that Beyoncé and the newborns are good and healthy.

Early last week, Jay Z received an induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Former President Barack Obama gave a speech in honor of the Brooklyn rapper that largely suggested that with the arrival of the twins, Jay would soon outnumber him with the amount of girls he had on his hands. Speculation about the twins further increased when Jay was not present during his ceremony to accept his award in person. From there, many assumed that he was by Bey’s side, during the delivery of their babies.

At the beginning of this year, Beyoncé decided to make Black History Month her own by sharing a photo of herself from a maternity shoot that would act as an announcement to the world that she and Jay were expecting again. Surrounding by flowers, draped in a veil, clad in undergarments adorned with pink ribbon and blue, and while touching her belly, she stared into the camera – satiated by the lives she carried in her womb.

“We have been blessed two times over,” the “Formation” singer captioned. “We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two and we thank you for the well wishes – The Carters”

Since the news broke this weekend, congratulations, including one from her father, have been buzzing all over social media for the icon. Beyoncé and her camp have not yet released an official statement or the names of the two new bundles of joy.

Either way, congrats to the Carters!
