35-year-old U.S pop and R&B singer, Beyonce, has given birth to twins in Los Angeles.
Beyonce and frontline rapper and music producer, Jay Z, already have a five-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
According to E! News, Jay Z and Blue Ivy were seen at a Los Angeles area hospital on Thursday.
The PEOPLE also reports that the couple welcomed twins earlier this week.
According to the newspaper, “Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends.”
Beyonce, one of the most powerful women in the music business, had announced the pregnancy on her Instagram account earlier in February along with an image of her posed in lingerie and caressing a noticeable baby bump.
The announcement got more than eight million “likes” in the first 24 hours to become the “most-liked” Instagram ever.
The R&B singer performed live at the Grammy awards in Los Angeles two weeks later, proudly displaying her swelling belly in a motherhood-themed show.
She has since posted numerous pictures of her bare baby bump on her social media accounts.
The birth of Blue Ivy caused a paparazzi storm in 2012, with New York’s Lenox Hill hospital shutting down part of its maternity wing to accommodate music’s royal couple.
Tweets have flooded the twitter on the birth, including that of Destiny’s grandchild which said: “everybody: the twins are here. me: I’ll wait for Beyoncé to tell us FROM HER OWN MOUTH about Houston & Brooklyn.”
E! News said “Ring the alarm! Beyoncé and Jay Z have officially welcomed twins.”
