Beyonce gives birth to twins – report

The music superstar has reportedly welcomed her twin bundles of joy into the world.

The newest members of music’s royal family have arrived!

According to multiple reports, Beyonce and Jay Z have welcomed their twin babies, joining five-year-old big sister Blue Ivy.

Us Weekly reports that the the couple are now the proud parents of a boy and a girl, who were born on Monday, June 12.

While the new family of five make the most of these precious first days together, TMZ report that the twins will have to stay in hospital a little while longer due to a “minor issue”.

Beyonce and Jay Z have reportedly welcomed a son and daughter.

The exact nature of the problem isn’t known but the babies and Beyonce will be OK.

So far, Beyonce, 35, and Jay Z, 47, have remained tight-lipped on their new arrivals but Bey’s father Mathew Knowles has been the first family member to officially confirm their birth.

Taking to Twitter, Mathew shared a photo of balloons with the message: “Happy birthday to the twins! Love, granddad.”

The “Drunk in Love” singer famously announced she was expecting twins in a surprise post on social media, showing off her baby bump in a distinctive floral-themed photo shoot.

At the time, Beyonce wrote that she had “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,” she added.

While Beyonce and Jay Z have yet to comment on the latest rumours that their family has now grown by two, a source told People that “Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends”.

Throughout her pregnancy with the twins, Beyonce shared her chic maternity style with fans on Instagram, regularly posting snaps of her different looks.

In fact, it was Beyonce’ s recent silence on social media that first sparked rumours amongst the Beyhive that the singer could have gone into labour.

With her most recent post shared over two weeks ago, on May 30, fans immediately began speculating that the twins were on their way. The rumours only gained more traction once Jay Z was reprotedly seen leaving his home on Tuesday, supposedly heading towards the couple’s Los Angeles medical centre of choice.

The new additions to the family have been a long time coming, with a source telling People that “they wanted another child and after a few years of trying, it’s a great feeling. Beyonce’s very happy”.
