Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z have reportedly welcomed twin babies earlier this week, thought to be a boy and a girl.
Showbiz 411 first reported on Saturday that multiple sources confirmed the power couple welcomed two children on Monday night or Tuesday morning.
A source told People magazine on the same day: ‘Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends.’
An unidentified female was pictured delivering a balloon and floral gift on Sunday morning which appeared to give the game away.
There was a pink and blue balloon, with one reading: ‘It’s a boy’ and the other reading: ‘It’s a girl.’
The accompanying envelope had: ‘To B & J’ on the front which appears to be confirmation but could have been sent by an over-zealous fan.
And now it has been reported that a ‘minor issue’ has kept their bundles of joys in hospital.
Sources close to the couple told the publication: ‘The twins were born Monday in a Los Angeles hospital. We’re told a “minor issue” surfaced, and as a result … doctors do not feel comfortable releasing them.’
Although the nature of the issue is not clear nor when they’ll be released, an insider added that Beyonce remains at the hospital but ‘is okay. The babies are expected to be okay as well.’
Beyonce and Jay-Z’s reps are yet to comment.
