Singer and husband Jay Z already have a daughter Blue Ivy together
Beyonce has announced she is expecting twins with husband Jay Z.
The singer shared the surprise news on Instagram on Tuesday, posting a picture of her bare bump.
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
Wearing a berry coloured bra and a pair of pale blue frilly knickers, the 35-year-old knelt on an elaborate display of roses with a sheer veil over her head.
As she looked directly into the camera, the singer cradled her already visible bump.
She captioned it: “We would like to share our love and happiness.
The couple already have five year old daughter Blue Ivy
“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.”
Beyonce didn’t give any further details of when the babies will arrive, but their arrival will come five years after the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Blue Ivy, in January 2012.
Fans first started to speculate the Crazy in Love star might be expecting after she released the latest trailer for her Ivy Park clothing range.
Fans thought they could see a hint of a bump in the outfits
In the footage, Beyonce appears for a mere three seconds sporting an khaki green bodysuit and matching hooded jacket.
But the brief glimpse of the star was enough to get fans questioning whether she was pregnant for a second time, as they felt they could see a hint of a bump in the ensemble.
The happy news comes nine years after the couple tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony in April 2008.
The star later revealed she had miscarried a child around 2010, describing it as the “saddest thing” she had ever been through.
Thankfully they were blessed with daughter Blue Ivy in 2012, but in the last couple of years, the pair had been dogged by rumours they were intended to divorce, not expand their family.
However the latest announcement finally shuts down the speculation once and for all, with the family now looking forward to their new arrivals.
