Beyonce And Jay Z Welcome Twins, According To Grandpa, Other Sources

Posted: Updated:

(NBC News)-- Beyoncé Knowles and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter have welcomed twins in one of the most highly anticipated celebrity births, according to multiple reports Sunday.

One of those reports was granddad himself, Matthew Knowles, who blasted the news on Twitter with a Father's Day post reading “They’re here!” and “Happy Birthday to the twins!"

And sources told E! News that Beyoncé had given birth to twins in Los Angeles, although the gender of the babies wasn't known.

The twins would join big sister, 5-year-old Blue Ivy, who was reportedly spotted at a Los Angeles-area hospital on Thursday with her father, according to E! News. TMZ also reported that the twins had arrived.

The platinum couple, who recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary — gift: pottery — has yet to officially comment.

Beyoncé first announced the news of her pregnancy on Instagram in February, showing off her baby bump and wearing a green veil while kneeling in front of a floral wreath in an artistic photo.

“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 said in the post.

The photo broke an Instagram record, quickly becoming the most “liked” post on the social media platform.

Later that month, Beyoncé delivered a visually stunning performance at the Grammy Awards and sang songs from her album "Lemonade."

The visual album did not win the night's top award, but won best urban contemporary album and best music video.

It is unknown exactly when the singer gave birth, but Jay Z was notably absent from his induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday in New York City, and instead took to the internet for a rare tweet storm thanking others he said inspired him — including former President Barack Obama, who was part of the ceremony with pre-taped remarks.

Obama called the rapper/businessman a "true American original" and may have also hinted at the gender of the twins.

"Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s going to have me beat once those two twins show up,” he said.

    (NASA)-- Most of the ‘beauty shots’ you will see related to this eclipse will be taken with professional digital cameras on tripods, or shot through a telescope, but the most common photos you will probably see will be taken by the millions of smartphones used by ordinary people to capture this event. These will generally not look very good with the typical smartphone system, but with a bit of preparation, you will be able to create some stunning pictures!

    LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) -- We've gotten a lot of questions about ways to watch the eclipse. We know the solar glasses are few and far between and many are having trouble finding safety wear. Here are some questions we have been asked and we want to make sure that no one hurts their eyes in the once-in-a-lifetime event. 1. Can I just look at the eclipse for just a second as it's happening? Unless you are in the path of totality...no.No. No. No. You can seriously damage your eyesight....
