Blue Ivy is a big sister!
Beyoncé and her husband, Jay Z, have welcomed twins, People magazine reports. The news about the couple's newest bundles of joy was also tweeted out by Beyoncé's father.
"They're here!" Mathew Knowles announced in Twitter and Instagram posts that featured a photo of balloons and read "Happy birthday to the twins."
The gender of the newest members of the Carter family was not immediately known.
Last week, the rumor mill went into overdrive after former President Obama spoke about the twins during a tribute to Jay Z for the Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony. In a pre-taped message aired last Thursday night, Obama noted similarities between him and the rapper, including the fact they both have wives "who are significantly more popular than we are." He also mentioned their children.
"Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s going to have me beat once those two twins show up,” the president said.
Many on social media took that to mean Beyoncé was having twin girls, while others thought it simply was a reference to how many children she would soon have.
"We would like to share our love and happiness," she wrote. "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 singer's mom, Tina Knowles, also celebrated on Instagram, writing, "WOW I don't have to keep the secret anymore? I am soooo happy. God is so good. Twin blessings."
Beyoncé and Jay Z welcomed their first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January 2012.
