The singer Bey­oncé gave birth to twins at a hos­pi­tal in Los Angeles last week, ac­cord­ing to re­ports on sev­eral celebrity news web­sites that cited uniden­ti­fied sources. Yes­ter­day Bey­oncé’s fa­ther, Mathew Knowles, also wrote on Twit­ter: “They’re here! #beyonce #twins #jayz #hap­py­birth­day.”

The R&B star, who is 35, and her part­ner, the rap­per and mu­sic pro­ducer Jay Z, al­ready have a five-year-old daugh­ter named Blue Ivy.

E! News, cit­ing uniden­ti­fied sources, re­ported the births and that Jay Z and Blue Ivy had been seen at a Los Angeles area hos­pi­tal on Thurs­day.

Us Weekly, also cit­ing mul­ti­ple un­named sources, re­ported that the twins, which it said were a boy and a girl, were born last Mon­day.

“Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started shar­ing the news with their fam­ily and clos­est friends,” one source told Peo­ple mag­a­zine.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Bey­oncé did not re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.

The per­former, one of the most pow­er­ful women in the mu­sic busi­ness, an­nounced the preg­nancy on her In­sta­gram ac­count in Fe­bru­ary with an im­age of her pos­ing in un­der­wear and ca­ress­ing her belly. The an­nounce­ment had more than 8m “likes” in 24 hours, mak­ing it the “most liked” In­sta­gram post ever.

Blue Ivy’s birth caused a pa­parazzi frenzy in 2012, with New York’s Lenox Hill hos­pi­tal shut­ting part of its ma­ter­nity wing to ac­com­mo­date the fam­ily.
