Congrats to Jay-Z and Beyoncé! Wow, what a way to start the New Year. Beyoncé and Jay Z are expecting baby No. 2 — and No. 3!
The “Formation” singer took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce that she is pregnant with twins. “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over,” Beyoncé wrote on Instagram. “We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters”
Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles, celebrated the news on her own Instagram, writing, “WOW I don’t have to keep the secret anymore! I am soooo happy ❤️❤️God is so good❤️ twin blessings”.
Beyoncé and Jay welcomed their first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in 2012, a pregnancy Queen B infamously announced at the 2011 MTV VMAs. “Out of everything I’ve accomplished, my proudest moment, hands-down, was when I gave birth to my daughter, Blue,” she has since said.
This latest news comes a week before the Lemonade singer is expected to appear at the GRAMMYs on Feb. 12. Beyoncé is also set to headline the Coachella music festival in April — no word yet on how her pregnancy might affect that gig, though ET has reached out for comment.
