ARE Beyonce and Jay Z parents again?
Mum's the word from the parents and their reps, even though reports are flying that the much-anticipated twins have made their arrival.
Several outlets have published reports with no official confirmation. Even Beyonce's father, with whom she has had a strained relationship, tweeted congrats Sunday.
“They’re here! #Beyonce #twins #JayZ #HappyBirthday,” Matthew Knowles tweeted.
But fans are not inclined to believe it until Beyonce herself announces the news.
Following Knowles’ announcement, a fan tweeted: “They aren’t here until Beyonce tells us they’re here” while another quipped: “That was for Beyonce to tell, not you.”
On Instagram, Knowles also posted a digital card that reads: “Hapy birthday to the twins! Love, Granddad.”
The post was liked by Beyonce’s mom Tina, who didn’t confirm the news herself despite being active on social media around the time Beyonce was supposed to have given birth, which was late last week.
CNN received confirmation about the birth from a source close to the couple. But there was no word on the gender of the twins.
Beyonce and Jay Z are usually tight-lipped about their personal lives and waited years to release footage of their wedding and weeks to confirm the birth of daughter Blue Ivy, who is now five.
They announced she was pregnant with twins in an Instagram post in February. The pregnancy forced Beyonce to bow out of the Coachella music festival in April.
