Beyoncé could give birth to her twins any day now and, though it’s only been a few months since the world first heard that the Carter family would expand by two, the wait is more than her fans can even handle at this point. Since the moment that Beyoncé announced she and husband Jay-Z were expecting twins, fans have been on the hunt for any and every clue on how the pregnancy was progressing, what the famous family had planned for the birth, and when — when??? — the babies would finally arrive. The couple, known for keeping quiet about personal news, hasn’t given anything away. So, those of us glued to Twitter and Instagram have been left only with pet theories from fans and clues that Beyoncé gave birth already until the news finally drops.
To be clear, no one has any idea as to whether Bey has actually had her babies or not at this point. So far, there’s been no official announcement from her team, and it’s been over six days since the star herself has updated her Insta. That alone is unusual, according to some fans, considering how many photos Beyoncé has shared with fans throughout her pregnancy, starting with the announcement that shook the internet.
But Beyoncé’s silence on social media isn’t the only thing that has fans suspecting the big day may have already come and gone. Leaked reports that Beyoncé and her team were conducting practice runs to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles — and that her mother, Tina Knowles, had been spotted at the hospital late last month — only add to fan speculation. Then, there was the news that her sister, Solange Knowles, cancelled a concert in Boston on May 26 due to “production delays and complications.”
Finally, some sharp-eyed fans are pointing to the final picture Beyoncé shared on Instagram — a cute side shot of her and Miss Blue Ivy going in for a smooch — as evidence that the big event has already happened. To some, the star’s belly seemed slightly smaller than in the pic from her May 20 baby shower, which could mean that she took the picture weeks ago and posted it recently to throw fans off a bit.
Whether Beyoncé’s silence at this late stage in her pregnancy is significant or not has fans guessing. It’s certainly possible that she and her family are cuddling their new babies. And it’s equally possible that Bey is relaxing with her feet up and preparing to meet the two little people who will change her family forever. What’s clear is that her fans are eager for news that the Carter babies have arrived and everyone is resting happily — even if the wait is making us all a little nuts.
