BEYONCE AND JAY Z HAVE TWINS
Popular music’s golden couple Beyonce Knowles and Jay Z have welcomed twins. At the time of going to press, it wasn’t clear precisely when the singer gave birth, or whether it was a boy and a girl, or two babies of the same gender. According to one report, the birth may have been on June 15, as Jay Z was due to be honoured that night in New York City, at the Songwriters Hall of Fame, but didn’t attend the ceremony. As for the sex of the twins, former US President Barack Obama hinted at the arrival of two girls in a video message broadcast at the Hall of Fame. The babies join big sister Blue Ivy Carter, now five-and-a-half.
