Bey­oncé gives birth to twins

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

BEY­ONCÉ and her hus­band Jay Z have re­port­edly wel­comed their twins into the world. Bey­oncé has re­port­edly given birth.

The 35-year-old singer and her hus­band Jay Z – who al­ready have five-year-old daugh­ter Blue Ivy to­gether – are be­lieved to have wel­comed their two new babies into the world last week, al­though de­tails on the pop star’s dou­ble de­liv­ery and the new­borns are few and far be­tween, ac­cord­ing to Us Weekly.

The power cou­ple – who got mar­ried in 2008 – an­nounced they were adding to their brood in Fe­bru­ary when the For­ma­tion hit­maker posted a pho­to­graph of her bur­geon­ing baby bump on her so­cial net­work­ing sites.

She wrote at the time: “We would like to share our love and hap­pi­ness. We have been blessed two times over. We are in­cred­i­bly grate­ful that our family will be grow­ing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters.”

The pair have re­mained rel­a­tively silent through­out the preg­nancy but Bey­oncé’s mother, Tina Knowles, hasn’t been able to con­tain her ex­cite­ment.

She said re­cently: “I’m so ex­cited. I can’t wait.”

And 63-year-old Tina – who is also mother to 30-year-old singer Solange Knowles – has also praised her el­dest daugh­ter for be­ing an “in­cred­i­ble par­ent”.

She said: “(Bey­oncé and Jay Z are) in­cred­i­ble par­ents. She’s a re­ally good mom. Re­ally pa­tient and kind. (My big­gest les­son was) teach­ing them that what is on the in­side counts more than what’s on the out­side. I see her pass­ing it on, and it makes me re­ally proud.”

Al­though she has been very in­volved in the preg­nancy, Tina claimed a few weeks ago that she had been kept in the dark over the babies’ sexes.

She said when asked about the sex of her grand­chil­dren: “I would be happy with what­ever God gives me. It’s the big­gest bless­ing and I’m so ex­cited.”
