Beyonce and Jay Z Welcome Twins: ‘Bey and Jay Are Thrilled,’ Says Source
Jay Z is certainly enjoying Father’s Day right about now. His wife, Beyoncé, gave birth to twins, last week (reportedly on June 12), according to multiple media outlets.
The names of the twins and their gender have not been revealed as of yet. An insider told PEOPLE that the couple are beaming with joy and are sharing the news with friends and family.
“Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends,” said the source.
This makes Blue Ivy, who is five years old, a big sister times two.
Back in February, Queen Bey and Hov made their announcement that they are having twins on social media. “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over,” said Beyoncé in a Snapchat clip. Since then, Bey has been posting gorgeous maternity photos and videos to her Instagram account.
In May, Beyoncé held a star-studded baby shower at a private residence in Beverly Hills, Calif. Among the A-List celebrities in attendance included mom-to-be Serena Williams, La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and of course, Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles Lawson. According to E! News, it was a fun-filled event with gold balloons that spelled out “Carter Push Party” and “Twinning.”
Last week, it was reported that the power couple turned their Los Angeles mansion into their own maternity ward for the birth of their twins. Medical equipment, including incubators and “an entire professional neonatal wing” was shipped to the couple’s home.
Either way, the twins are here and Bey and Jay are extremely happy.
Congratulations to Beyoncé and Jay Z on their two new bundles of joy!
