Did Obama just accidentally reveal the sex of Beyonce’s twins?

The Internet is on high-alert right now as it waits for news Beyonce has given birth to her twins.

No doubt it's been a hectic time for the family as well, with a no-show by the singer's husband Jay Z this week at a ceremony inducting him into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Despite not being able to attend in person, the rapper has been congratulated by some very high profile figures, including former President of the United States, Barack Obama, who celebrated Jay Z's achievement with this two minute video.

But Twitter users never miss a trick and were quick to note that Obama may have let slip the gender of his Beyoncé and Jay Z's twins during the congratulatory speech.

In the video, Obama addressed the artist: "I'd like to think Mr. Carter and I understand each other. Nobody who met us as younger men would have expected us to be where we are today. And so we try to prop open those doors of opportunities, so that it's a little easier for those who come up behind us to succeed as well," Obama said. "I'm pretty sure I'm still the only president to listen to Jay-Z's music in the Oval Office. That may change at some point, but I'm pretty sure that's true now."

But what he said next, sent Twitter into a tailspin.

"Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, though he's gonna have me beat once those two twins show up. And let's face it, we both have wives who are significantly more popular than we are," Obama joked.

His comments immediately sent some users straight to social media convinced that this surely means the A-list couple are expecting twin girls.

According to earlier reports, there has been intensive security at a Los Angeles-based hospital, fueling speculations Beyonce may be about to give birth to the couple's twins. The celebrity couple are already parents of daughter, five-year-old Blue Ivy.
