Like much of the baby-loving world, we were super-excited to hear that Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting not one, but two babies later this year. Outstanding effort, guys!
The announcement comes hot on the heels of Pharrell Williams and Helen Lasichanh’s triplet news yesterday, confirming it’s multiple birth mayhem in the world of celebs and possibly contagious, considering Pharrell and Jay-Z are buds. #SomethingInTheWater
As you probably know, Jay-Z and Beyonce are already parents to 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
The couple are said to be “ecstatic” that their family’s jumping from a trio to a cute gang of five.
Beyonce announced her pregnancy to the world in the traditional Instagram style, uploading an image of herself (in her undies and a veil), floral background prettily setting off her fetching baby bump.
She captioned the shot:
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
Broke the news early
Bey apparently spilt the beans now so as not to diminish any attention she may receive for her work at the upcoming Grammy Awards.
US Weekly reports that the singer wants people to focus on her creative work at the event, rather than her bump.
Good luck with that, Queen! #BumpWatch
Beyonce and Jay-Z married in a low-key ceremony back in 2008. After tragically suffering a miscarriage in 2010, they became proud parents to Blue Ivy in 2012.
The pair really are the power couple of the American music industry. Between them they’ve sold millions of records, earned millions of dollars and forged a diverse and enviable business empire.
Texan-born Beyonce has been singing and dancing since childhood, shooting to fame as part of the hugely successful girl group, Destiny’s Child before becoming a solo star.
Jay-Z spent his early years in a Brooklyn housing project and has gone on to become one of the most recognisable rap artists in the world. His commercial ventures have made him bucket loads of money and he’s pretty much the personification of the self-made man.
Between the two of them, they’re bound to raise a bunch of creative, get-stuff-done kids.
We’re excited to see what’s next for these guys!
