U.S. reports that Beyoncé has given birth - she and Jay Z "thrilled"

"We have been blessed two times over", Beyoncé wrote alongside the snap. "And let's face it, we both have wives who are significantly more popular than we are".

Beyonce and Jay-Z are already experienced parents, but for George and Amal, it is a brand new experience.

News that he was spotted heading into a Los Angeles hospital alongside his five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

"Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends", a source tells People.

The former president said in a video that "Jay and I are also fools for our daughters".

Although Mathew's post appeared to suggest that the twins were born today, several online sources, including TMZ, claimed that the 35-year-old Beyonce and her rapper husband JayZ, 47, had welcomed the twins on Monday, June 12, six days ago, but kept the news under wraps. According to reports, in May, she hosted her baby shower, which she called, "Carter Push Party".

Her pregnancy with the twins was announced in a photo on Instagram that broke the record for most "liked" photo in social media history, USA Today said. According to E!, the woman's gift included a card that read "B & J". "We've been pregnant with you for too long, honey". Even Beyonce's father, with whom she has had a strained relationship, tweeted congrats Sunday. Time for me to move to NY.

Granted we don't have confirmation on what's ailing the Carter twins, but what we do know is that extended hospital stays for multiples aren't all that rare. I can imagine this was no easy task for them.
