Beyonce's dad confirms birth, 'Happy Birthday to the twins!, love Granddad'

The gender of the twins is unknown and no further details have been revealed, and Beyonce and Jay Z have not confirmed the birth.

There has been no official word from the Carter family, but People and other entertainment news sources such as US Weekly are reporting singers Beyonce and Jay Z's twins are here.

Needless to say, the Beyhive is not at all thrilled that Mathew Knowles, instead of Bey, Jay or even Mama Tina made the announcement.

The sex of the twins is also unknown, but former US President Barack Obama hinted at the arrival of two girls in a video message broadcast at the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The couple already have a daughter, Blue Ivy, aged five.

Beyoncé's pregnancy forced her to cancel her headlining appearance at Coachella in April, although she is set to headline the 2018 festival.

He took to Twitter on Father's Day to share the good news with a "Happy Birthday" post of colorful balloons.

The Grammy victor famously revealed that she was pregnant with two back in early February with an Instagram post that almost broke the internet. 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".

Beyonce and the 99 Problems hitmaker tied the knot in 2008 and recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary.
