Ring The Alarm! Take The Chains Off The Doors! This Is Not A Drill. The Carter Twins Are Here!
Just in case you took a short nap, lost signal in a subway tunnel or got momentarily blinded by a stray eyelash, you may have missed the news that the Carter’s are now officially a family of five.
Multiple news sources have reported that Beyoncé and husband Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter welcomed the twins in Los Angeles recently. TMZ reports that sources close to the family have confirmed that the Lemonade singer gave birth to a boy and girl on Monday in Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A., but a minor issue has kept the newborns in the hospital and doctors do not feel comfortable releasing them just yet.
So why almost a whole week for the blessed B-day news? A family representative apparently broke the news Saturday to People magazine:
“Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends.”
The 35-year-old performer announced her pregnancy back in February posting pics of her blossoming belly in a Virgin Mary type photo shoot surrounded by flowers and lingerie. Queen Bey also literally glowed in all her maternity glory at the Grammy’s in the same month to perform songs from her Lemonade album and slayed per usual, despite having to postpone her performance at the Coachella festival in which she was announced as a headliner only a few weeks before (we all know that busy bee will pick up right where she left off and give her fans the performance of a lifetime next year). We also witnessed the couple surrounded by family and friends at an African themed “Carter Push Party” with guests like Lala Anthony and Serena Williams in attendance. Let’s not forget she also announced she was going to help young women change the world one boss move at a time with her “Formation Scholarship” program.
All I did during my pregnancy was put together an IKEA shelf and develop an expensive Talenti Southern Butter Pecan Gelato habit. What you thought creating two lives was going to slow the almighty Bey down? Congrats to the Carter family! We know Blue Ivy is going to be the best big sister and Jay-Z just received the greatest Father’s Day gifts ever.
