Beyonce and Jay Z Welcome Their Twins, Likely a Boy and Girl

LOS ANGELES - FEBRUARY 12: Jay Z and Beyoncé attend at THE 59TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS, broadcast live from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Sunday, Feb. 12 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/5:00-8:30 PM, live PT; 6:00-9:30 PM, live MT) on the CBS Television Network.

The Carters Twins are here!

Beyonce has given birth to her twins, according to multiple sources confirmed to E! News.

“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,” read a statement on behalf of the family.

The entertainment site reports that on Thursday, her husband Jay Z and their daughter Blue Ivy were together spotted at a Los Angeles area hospital, probably after visiting their new family arrivals.


Her mom, Tina Knowles, also gave credence to the news when she wrote in a recent social media post, “wow I don’t have the keep the secret anymore. I am sooo happy God is so good twin blessings.”

The Grammy winner famously revealed that she was pregnant with two back in early February with an Instagram post that nearly broke the internet (no, really).

Congrats! No news if they are boy and girl but a recent report of a mystery woman entering the hospital with carrying a bouquet of pink, purple and blue flowers with two giant baby foot-shaped pink and blue balloons that read, “Baby Girl” and “Baby Boy” with a card that bore the initials B&J.

Designer babies? Maybe. 😉 Certainly, from a designer couple!

While Jay Z is Conspicuously Absent from Receiving Landmark Honor, Pres Obama is Revealing His Twins Gender?

obama-jay-z-getty

Here is some more speculation about Beyonce and Jay Z’s twins.

First, the rapper was set to be the first hip hop recording artist to ever be inducted in the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year but was conspicuously absent at the ceremony tonight bestowing him the honors. This absence has fueled rumors that Mrs. Carter may be in labor or about to deliver the twins very soon (or recently delivered them and is not letting her husband leave the house).


Then, former US President Barack Obama delivered a video formally presenting and introducing the rapper and business mogul before he was announced a recipient at the ceremony.

But, some are saying he might have accidentally revealed the gender of the twins in the process?

“I like to think Mr. Carter and I understand each other,” Obama said. “Nobody who met us as younger men would have expected us to be where we are today. We know what it’s like not to have a father around, we know what it’s like not to come from much, and to know people who didn’t get the same breaks that we did. So we try to prop open those doors of opportunity so that it’s a little easier for those who come up behind us to succeed as well.”

Then he dropped this gem: “Jay and I are also fools for our daughters although,” Obama said, “he’s going to have me beat once those two twins show up.”

Hmmm… So twin girls then? Or maybe, he just means have him beat with the number of children as Jay will surpass him by having three!

The Obamas are good friends with The Carters and it is very possible that they were privy to the gender in advance.

Anyway, I thought it was interesting that Jay, who is rarely on social media, chose to deliver his acceptance speech in a series of clumsy tweets. Here are some:

Beyonce May Be in Labor so #TBT For Everyone!

 img_7167

It’s been 7 hours and 16 days since Beyonce took her lovely mug away, having not posted or been seen much since the end of May.

If I were a betting woman, I would say she is somewhere nursing a set of boy -girl twins (who we’ll call Pink and Gray in keeping with the Color theme), and creating wonderful memories nurturing the growing family that includes hubby Jay Z and 5-year old daughter Blue Ivy.


Or she could be in labor as suggested by many given her stylist Chuck Amos‘ cryptic Instagram message and photo of himself with Bey.

Hang in there, Mama! 💛 You @Beyonce!!

A post shared by Chuck Amos, Hair Legend (@chuckielovehair) on

 

The post in question showed a photo of Amos with the singer and was captioned, “hang in there, Mama! <3 You.”

Could be something or just a general shout out. Who knows?

Because we have no new news, I thought tonight, I would share some throwback Thursday photos of a Throwback to Mom’s Day 2017 pics she posted on her blog.

The pop star wore a green floral Dolce and Gabbana dress that matched Blue’s from the same designer.

She carried Balmain bag and was rocking Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and a pair of shades by Miu Miu.

Blue’s shoes are by Bloch.

Meanwhile, Jay Z was sporting an Dries Van Noten jacket and a baseball cap from his company Roc Nation.

Beyonce is like us: use Flashback  Friday on social media as a excuse to share not -so-old cute pics just because..

This Friday, the second time mom-to-be shared photos of the outfit she wore to Jessica Alba‘s MJ & Prince– themed party that was held on April 28.


In the photo series, the mega star sported an Any Old Iron and a super cute Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti Mini dress accented by a Saint Laurent bag, and Chloe shoes with a Gladys Tamez hat and rings by XIV Karats.

Bey and husband Shawn “Jay Z” Carter are expecting their second and third child, twins!

I prefer the mini dresses but have enjoyed all her maternity looks so far.

 

It’s Not New that Gossip Rags Make up Celeb Pregnancies to Sell Mags

o-jen-570

Gossip Cop has noticed that the tabloid regularly make up stories about celebrities being pregnant when they aren’t actually are. Star, OK! and Life & Style are notorious for such headlines. It’ s not new though and these made up headlines are the predecessor to online click bait articles written with false or anonymous sources to sell to audiences but it was interesting to take note of Gossip Cop’s recent roundup.

The site pointed out Star’s new cover announcing  “miracle baby at 47” for Gwen Stefani. It also blasted the current issue of OK! declaring, Chris [Pratt] & Ann a [Farris]Baby Joy!” about Chris Pratt and Anna Faris expecting their second child.  “source” was quoted as telling the magazine, “Anna is simply glowing right now and it looks like she has a tiny baby bump.” The article claimed the couple went to counseling to save their marriage, after which they supposedly decided to expand their family. But the tabloid had previously fabricated those relationship problems, and this pregnancy was invented, too. Reps for both Faris and Pratt told Gossip Cop there was “no truth to any part of this cover story.”


And finally, it took note of  Life & Style’s story pronouncing that Jennifer Lopez is expecting with her new beau Alex Rodgriguez.  “J. Lo & A-Rod: They’re Having A Boy!” the mag declared of the “miracle baby at 47.”The piece claimed Jennifer Lopez was pregnant with a baby boy and already decorating a baseball-themed nursery, while Alex Rodriguez was narrowing down possible names. “She’s super excited about having his son. She’s not showing yet, but she can’t wait to get a baby bump,” an “insider” supposedly alleged.

Gossip Cop’s inquiry withe the rep revealed that the story was “not true.”

Bellyitch has posted it a bit in the past about how much stars like Beyonce, Jennifer Aniston and others are falsely accused of being pregnant after a hearty meal, wearing an  ill-fitting outfit or carrying their purse in front of their belly. Most times, it is nothing.

As we posted in 2010, 2013, 2015 and again in 2016,  Aniston is the most speculated celeb of all Time!

Inside Beyonce’s West African-Themed ‘Push Party’ Not Baby Shower

img_6330

You might have heard of “Push Presents” and a Baby shower party to celebrate an impending arrival, but leave it to megastar Beyonce to have Push Party!

The multi-award winning recording artist starred in the festive West African themed affair held at a private residence in Beverly Hills, California.


Guests came dressed in colorful headdresses including some from Burkinabaé and also in gelées, kufis, and Ankara styles.

img_6331

The guest of honor herself donned a  cropped African print top and garrah with her head wrap common in Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal, Gambia and Sierra Leone which she accented with henna tattoos on her belly, a pregnant lady trend we’ve posted about in the past. Her oversize authentic bamboo fan earrings and jewelry all area native to West African costumes.

In Instagram posts Bey’s mom Tina Lawson shared on line, guests included Serena Williams, our Bumpwatch Alum Kelly Rowland who dressed in a Batik tie-dyed off-the-shoulder halter top and slim skirt, LaLa Anthony and another alum Vanessa Bryant also in a Burkinabaé head wrap and jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.

Black and White photos circulating on the Internet showed the venue decorated in African fabric as music from the late Nigerian artist Fela Kuti.

Also, her husband Rapper Jay Z was spotted dancing and having a ball.
We imagine a push party did not involve giving of gifts.

Or it could mean she’s closer to pushing than we think   Her mom was spotted at Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA this week.

Back to the fete:The guests posted photos of the festivities on each of their respective Social media feeds using the hashtag #CarterPushParty. Check them out.

Beyonce’s Publicist Had to Set The Blogs Straight on Lip Filler Rumors

img_5525Recent photos Beyonce has posted of herself reveal that her lips are a lot fuller than usual.

When gossip Blogs started to report on suggestions that she was using lip fillers,  Bey’s  longtime publicist Yvette Noel-Schure set one straight.

In a sternly written letter to Media Take out, Noel-Schure set the site whose writers clearly know-nothing about pregnancy straight:

“What do you know about the effects of pregnancy on a woman’s entire body? Please tell me. Did you know that in addition to weight gain there is often a dramatic change in the blood flow in the system and increased fluid causing swelling? Do you know that often women’s gums get swollen? Do you know that it sometimes affects our speech, our ability to chew intently and a host of other things?”


img_5523
Damn straight! Wait! There is more! She continued:

“But the sacrifice to our faces, our feet and our entire bodies is something we welcome because we bring beautiful humans into the world who will one day combat your hate and negativity. I stood silent during Beyoncé’s first pregnancy when you thought it was okay to bully her like the cowards you are, when you accused her of never being pregnant, but I simply cannot this time.”

img_5524

She polished off the read:
“You are the saddest individuals and picking on a pregnant lady is tantamount to possessing the coldest, despicable heart. You need to find something else to do with your time and maybe stop by a store that has happiness on sale because you need to buy some.”

Yes! Yes and Yes!!

Just like I would have read them

Serena Williams is having a very social week. A day after making her red carpet baby bump debut, the tennis champ attended the launch of the Burberry DK88 Bag hosted by Christopher Bailey at Burberry Soho on May 2, 2017 in New York City.

Whitney Port is finally coming from under the exhaustion spell of pregnancy. She posted a photo of herself looking happy and well…energetic on her Instagram account recently.

Her fellow MTV The Hills alum co-star Lauren Conrad has been laying low but was spotted  at designer Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2017 ‘See Now, Buy Now’ Fashion Show on February 4, 2017 earlier in her pregnancy.

And another MTV family alum, Heidi Pratt showed off her bump with her hubby Spencer Pratt this week. “Sunday Fun. The 3 of Us,” she captioned an Instagram photo of the growing family.

Sunday fun day.. the 3 of us🤰🏼💛🤰🏼

Meanwhile, Beyonce has been busy making news as well. She appeared at her mom Tina Knowles Lawson and step dad Richard Lawson‘s charity fundraiser to support the WACO Theater Center in California. The event called the Inaugural Wearable Art Gala raised $1M, according to a recent post  by Beyonce. It is reminiscent of the Met Ball, which also encourages attendees to wear artistic renditions of clothing or vice versa, wear art like clothes.


Meanwhile, Bey released the collector’s edition of her multi-award winning visual album, “Lemonade.” The box set will set you back $300 but it comes with behind the scenes photos, prints of Beyonce’s personal hand written notes drafted during the creation of the project and much more.
