It's officially official — reports are circulating that the Carter family has grown by two and Blue Ivy is now a big sister. But what day did Beyoncé have her twins? Details are still scarce as the world waits for more reports to come in. According to Us Weekly, multiple sources have confirmed that Beyoncé gave birth to the twins she was expecting with husband Jay Z earlier this week. As far as an actual birthday — no reports have confirmed the day Beyoncé delivered.
UPDATE: TMZ reported on Sunday that Beyoncé had given birth on Monday, June 12. The outlet also claimed the twins were still in the hospital for a "minor issue," but, according to a source, were "expected to be okay." Beyoncé herself was also reportedly still in the hospital, but would likely be "okay" as well, the source claimed. The outlet did not know the nature of the twins' condition, and Beyoncé's rep did not immediately respond to the report.
EARLIER: Fans of the singer-songwriter have been waiting a long time to hear any news. Back in February, the pop icon posted a picture to her Instagram account that featured her hands holding on to her pregnant belly, and which immediately went viral (to date, it's the most-liked Instagram post ever). In a caption beneath the photo, she wrote:
We would like to share our love and happiness. 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
With all of the reports coming in that the newest Carters are here, the well wishes for Beyoncé, Jay Z, and Blue Ivy are about to get a lot bigger.
According to Us Weekly, a source claimed earlier this year that Jay Z and Beyoncé had been trying for a long time to get pregnant again. Whether that's true or not, these babies are sure to be a huge blessing for both of their parents and 5-year-old big sister, Blue Ivy. The source also claimed that Blue Ivy was incredibly excited. (I mean, who wouldn't be?)
If you're waiting to cram a cupcake or two in your mouth in honor of the twins, however, you'll have to wait to get an exact birth date. Details are still scarce, but Beyoncé fans have been speculating for weeks that the twins were already here. Everything from Instagram pictures that seem out of chronological order (with a shrinking belly) to a woman seen delivering a bouquet with balloons to a Los Angeles hospital with a card addressed to B and J has sent fans reeling. When did Beyoncé give birth? What day did her immensely talented twins bless this world? When is an album going to be released about this momentous occasion?
As you're waiting on details, send all your love and well wishes to the Carter clan. Regardless of when the two newest members were born, one thing's for sure — they're already incredibly loved.
