Beyoncé and Jay Z will soon welcome the arrival of their twins. However, this time, they will welcome them billionaires.

According to the Forbes list of America’s Wealthiest Self-Made Women, the 35-year-old singer-songwriter and actress has amassed $350 million. The 47-year-old Jay Z, on the other hand, is worth $810 million according to Forbes’ Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists of 2017, good enough for second place behind Diddy who has $890 million.

Combined, the couple is worth $1.16, which is a pretty good number considering the arrival of their twins. Perhaps Beyoncé’s dedication to her craft brought about her sustained success. “I’m never satisfied. I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry,” said Beyoncé in a previous interview with Forbes.

The report also noted her “Formation World Tour” in 2016, which comprised of 49 different dates and three legs. The tour became a massive success, generating $250 million for the performer. Meanwhile, Jay Z recently inked a 10-year, $200 million deal with Live Nation, which means he will become very busy in the coming months.

Earlier this month, reports of Beyoncé giving birth anytime soon erupted in the internet. A report from Radar Online said that an insider claimed that it could be just a matter of days. “Beyonce’s twins are coming sooner than people think! With twins, it is not too uncommon for the doctors to perform a C-section a month or so early,” the source said.

Furthermore, another hot topic was the gender of the performer’s twins, as well as the names that the couple would give them. Some fans floated the name “Lemon,” after Beyoncé’s smash hit album, “Lemonade.”

As for the star’s pregnancy, E! News reported that it is tougher than her last pregnancy with Blue Ivy. A source said that she was having a “harder time with keeping up her energy,” though the superstar says she “loves being pregnant.”
