Pop diva Beyoncé and her rap mogul husband Jay Z have welcomed twins, according to US media reports on the two new members of music’s royal family that already includes five-year-old Blue Ivy.
News that the songstress had given birth, reported by entertainment outlets including People magazine and US Weekly, ignited social media, with the so-called “Bey hive” fan group buzzing over the yet unrevealed sexes and names of the latest additions to the Carter Clan.
US Weekly cited multiple unidentified sources as saying that the twins were born earlier this week. Entertainment news outlet E!, also citing unidentified sources, said the couple had been spotted at a Los Angeles area hospital on Thursday.
Speculation grew when an unidentified woman was photographed Friday carrying a large bouquet of pink, blue and purple flowers — complete with a card that appeared to read “B + J” — along with twin pink and blue balloons in the shape of feet that read “Baby Girl” and “Baby Boy.”
A representative for Beyoncé did not immediately respond to AFP’s request for comment.
