The long wait is finally over. Singer-songwriter Beyoncé finally gave birth to her twins.
Reports of the twins’ arrival first floated on Sunday, when a number of US entertainment media outfits confirmed the news. BBC reported that PEOPLE, Us Weekly, and Entertainment Weekly initially confirmed Beyoncé’s delivery, although the date and gender of the twins were withheld from the public.
A report from TMZ, though, confirmed that Beyoncé’s and husband Jay-Z’s new bundles of joy were born last Monday.
Meanwhile, a Telegraph report said that Mathew Knowles, the star’s father, also confirmed that his daughter had given birth. Knowles took to Twitter and sent a digital birthday card to the newborns, with a message saying “Happy Birthday to the twins! Love, Granddad.” Moreover, he also captioned his post: “They’re here!#beyonce #twins #jayz #happybirthday.”
The twins, however, will have to stay in the hospital a bit longer. The TMZ report confirmed that doctor found a “minor issue” that will force the twins to stay in the hospital for nearly a week. Beyoncé, on the other hand, is out of danger but still remains in the hospital. The superstar and her twins are all expected to be fine. However, the date of their release is still unclear, according to sources.
The 35-year-old performer and actress first announced her pregnancy last February. She accompanied her announcement with an Instagram photo of her baby bump. Since then, the photo went on to become the most-liked image on Instagram to date.
The power couple’s new blessings came on the heels of their financial success. The two officially became billionaires, with their combined wealth of $1.16B. Forbes named Beyoncé one of America’s Wealthiest Self-Made Women, with $350 million under her belt.
Meanwhile, the 47-year-old Jay-Z also made Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists of 2017 with $810 million. The rapper took home the second spot, just behind Diddy’s $890 million.
