Beyonce & Jay Z welcome twins: reports0:30
BEYONCE gave birth to her new twins â€” a boy and a girl â€” nearly a week ago, it has been claimed.
The superstar singer and her husband Jay Z reportedly welcomed their new twins almost a week ago but a minor issue has kept them in hospital, TMZ claims.
The website reports a source telling them that doctors don’t “feel comfortable” releasing the newborns just yet but they are expected to be OK.
A source told People magazine: “Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends.”
Lemonade singer Beyoncé, 35, famously announced her pregnancy with an Instagram post in February.
She wrote alongside the snap: “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over.”
Appropriately, the babies were born under Gemini, the Zodiac sign symbolised by twins.
Jay Z recently sparked rumours Beyoncé had gone into labour when he skipped an appearance at the Songwriters Hall of Fame Awards, where he was due to be inducted by former US president Barack Obama.
Later Obama sent Jay Z a video message — in which he may have let slip the twins’ gender.
He said: “Jay Z and I are also fools to our daughters. Although he’s going to have me beat when those twins show up,” leading fans to speculate the babies were both girls.
However E! News reported yesterday that a woman was spotted with balloons for a girl and a boy at an LA hospital — and a card reading “B & J”.
Meanwhile, the world is waiting for her to share a glimpse of her twins.
Taking to Twitter one fan said: “#Beyonce, sweetie. I know you’re in recovery, but where are the pics? We’ve been pregnant with you for too long, honey.”
