Joy to the world, the Carters twins are here (and yes, they are Geminis!)
After much speculation and excitement, Beyoncé and Jay Z welcomed newborn twins earlier this week according to US Weekly. A source close to the couple confirmed reports. “Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends,” the source told PEOPLE. The sex of the babies still remains unknown at the moment.
Mama Bey first announced her pregnancy in an epic Instagram reveal that sent social media into a spiral. Since the announcement, conspiracy theories haven’t stopped rolling in. Fans made their best guess about everything from the sex of the babies (fans thought her pink and blue lingerie set was a strong boy & girl hint) to the due date. But as always, Bey and Jay remained tight lipped about the details of the babies. So we basically held ourselves over with Beyoncé’s stylish maternity outfits and some pics from their mega-exclusive and super lit push party.
Days before the Carter twins made their official debut, the Beyhive started to sniff out clues that Beyoncé was in labor. Anonymous tips started trickling in to The Shade Room and Us Weekly claiming UCLA Hospital in Los Angeles had beefed up their security in preparation for the superstar mommy. Celebrity hairstylist Chuck Amos then let the cat out of the bag by posting an usie of himself and the queen with the caption “Hang in there Mama.”
Congratulations to Beyoncé and Jay Z!
