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!

After dinner, the Ciara and Wilson’s close family and friends played games and danced the night away to music provided by DJ Nabs.

Also from E!

The party was held at a private home in Los Angeles where a tent was set up overlooking the city’s gorgeous skyline of bright green trees and blue skies. Inside, the tent was lit up by pretty string lights and big balloons that were adorned by gold and silver fringe. A dining area was formed in the shape of a square with balloons filling the space in the center and cute trinkets—like gold elephant statues, massive flower arrangements, candles and books—covered the table.

Nice! The couple announced they were expecting last October after a whirlwind romance and getting married in a ceremony in England.

Beyonce and Jay-Z Found out the Sex of Twins But Are Staying Mum

jay-z-beyonce-pregnant

We are closer than ever to meeting Beyoncé‘s twin bundles of joy.

E! News has an exclusive update about the music superstar’s second pregnancy, and how she’s embracing every aspect along the way. A source admits that although Bey is having a “harder time this pregnancy with keeping up her energy,” she isn’t letting it ruin the experience.


“She loves being pregnant,” our insider adds.

The Lemonade artist has maintained her typically health-conscious diet, but the source tells E! News, “She splurges when she wants to and hasn’t taken her weight gain as a negative thing. She is a confident women in her skin whatever size she is [and] embraces it.”

And yes, the Carter family knows the sex of their babies-to-be but (as expected) are staying mum. That hasn’t stopped the Beyhive from diving deep into a few conspiracy theories, though…

On her marriage to Jay Z, our insider explains the all-star couple is still in the best place. “The love [between Jay Z and Beyoncé] is authentic and real,” the source shares, adding, “Jay is a good dad and husband. He’d do anything for Bey.”

For those heading to the desert for Coachella next month, we have some new insight into the reason why the pregnant star pulled out of headlining the music festival.

We’re told Bey “wanted to play Coachella,” but because her doctors advised to not push herself, as our source explained she “always” does, she delayed her performance until 2018.

Besides, we might have two Carter mini-me’s to gush over by that time anyway!

Insider: Janet Jackson’s Son Eissa Looks Just Like His Mama

janet jackston

Insiders report that pop star Janet Jackson is “totally in love” with being a new mom.

After welcoming her son Eissa Al Mana with her Quatar businessman husband Wissam Al Mana on January 3, Jackson is really into her new role


 

Janet is getting her strength back and feeling well,” a source told E! News. “She has so much help around her, so that has alleviated stress. She just feels so blessed everything went well and her baby is healthy. It was not an easy pregnancy at all.”

Given that she was 50 during most of her pregnancy, and felt “sluggish” during her pregnancy. she remained under doctor’s orders to rest, as sources previously told E! News, Jackson managed to have a “stress-free, healthy delivery” thanks to her doctors.

“She has some of the best doctors that helped her through it,” the insider added.

The source also shared that Eissa looks just like his famous mom.

“The baby looks like Janet in so many ways with a touch of her man,” the insider noted. “She is totally in love. She is taking time to just be with her baby at this time and that’s all she really wants.”

Some of Janet and husband Wissam Al Mana‘s family and friends have met the baby, but still many others are eager to get their first introductions to the newborn.

This has been a life-long dream of the 5-time Grammy winner.

“This was always her wish to have a child,” the source said. “She is so excited to watch her baby grow.”

Why You Won’t See an ‘Inside Blake Lively’s Baby Shower’ Post Soon

blake lively baby shower

Blake Lively celebrated the impending arrival of her second child this weekend in New York at an intimate private baby shower held at the Bedford Post Inn on Saturday in the heart of Westchester County.

Sources close to E! News confirm that the celebration started around 11 am and guests included one of her BFF’s Taylor Swift. After the event, a few guests retreated back to Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds‘ home to hang out and catch up.


The extremely private affair managed to go off without a hitch and without any of the guests sharing images of it on social media. Before this report, Vanity Fair sleuths suggested that the usually active actress may have already given birth given her relatively low key and quite presence on social media sites.

They had good reason to believe so. Lively and Reynolds have never revealed photos of their wedding and, like Kerry Washington, she has managed to keep their daughter James out of the public eye altogether. We’ve seen zero photos of her…ever.

We’re sure it was a lovely event, so there’s no more news to report here. And certainly, no ‘Inside Blake Lively’s Baby Shower’ post to be seen either.

 

Eva Mendes Adds ‘Sexy Mom’ Flavor to Her NY&CO Collection

IMG_5162-0.png

Eva Mendes has been designing clothes for her New York & Company line for several seasons now, but one recent major life event has since shifted her perspective on what women want to wear: becoming a mother.

E! News caught up with proud new mama to baby Esmeralda and chatted with Mendes about much her new September collection means to her.


“I think that being a mom now myself, I love dressing…not so much like a mom but there is a sexiness in kind of giving into the mom thing and that I’m dressing as an example for a little girl. Like, I’m someone’s example!”

The brunette beauty added, “That’s exciting for me and I make clothes that I think are really beautiful for moms, for all women, but certainly for moms.”

And when asked how she feels about seeing more diversity on the runways at fashion weeks across the globe, Mendes dished, “I don’t think it’s one or the other. I think as long as there is diversity and everyone is represented, that’s pretty rad.”

During her recent interview with Glam Belleza Latina‘s 2015 Fall issue, Mendes shared that she loves getting feedback from her customers and women on social media about her New York & Company collection and her CIRCA Beauty line.

In fact, many have wondered if it’s really her taking the time out to respond to the many comments on her Instagram, to which she answered, “That is 100 percent me. It actually breaks my heart when I can’t respond. I love connecting with women; it’s fun for me.”

That Mendes is a real girls’ girl!
