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!
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
It didn’t take long for a photo of Beyonce ordering dinner at her April 19th date night with her husband to become a meme and the source of humorous spoofs in social media. And now, Internet sleuths over at PEOPLE have figured out where you could get her look.
The red dress she wore in the red-themed Polaroid framed set of pics she posted on social media is from Halston. It is their Heritage low V-neck, high slit dress which features a flowy silhouette, cape-like sleeves and cost a mere $237. Not bad. The dress has spandex in it making it forgiving and body hugging.
Bey complemented-the look worn at the private celeb-studded intimate birthday celebration for husband Jay Z‘s best friend and Roc Nation’s SVP Lenny Santiago at Beauty & Essex in Los Angeles with a pair of suede Prada platform sandals with a metallic leather-trim which will cost you a pretty penny but still isn’t out of reach at $860.
Where you’re going to drop some serious coins is on the black velour Saint Laurent flap front cross body bag with double tassels and cord fixed strap and trim she carried that cost $1,250. Too bad it’s sold out at Neiman’s
If you don’t have $2,500 to fork over for one date, we put together a similar look for under $70! BOOM! Look:
And peep the rest of the pics:
Speaking of Beyonce [See earlier post today], Easter may be over but that hasn’t stopped the Queen Bey from sharing pics that she took from her and her family’s Easter adventure. The videos and pics include photos of herself in a white dress matching with her daughter Blue Ivy. The duo are wearing matching braided cornrows with beads on the end. Blue wears real bunny ears and the pop star uses her two fingers to simulate rabbit ears.
Beyonce Knowles Carter and her husband, rapper and biz mogul Shawn “Jay Z” Carter are expecting a pair of twins later this year. They are parents to 5-year old Blue, the first child for them both. Unlike with Blue Ivy, she has been taking and sharing a lot more photos of her pregnancy and herself out and about at events. It’s refreshing and perfect for the BumpWatch Brigade like this blog! (ha!) Enjoy the pics!
Tina Knowles Lawson hosted her family including daughter Beyonce Knowles Carter, son-in-law Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, grands and her “play daughter” Kelly Rowland, her husband Tim Witherspoon and their son Titan.
The designer and music group manager posted a photos and videos from the Sunday event that included food, fun and Easter Egg hunt. Lawson captioned a photo of herself with Bey and Kelly, ““3/4th of my girls❤️ Missing link at Cochella?” referencing Solange who is performing at the Music Festival, Coachella. Queen Bey was scheduled to perform during the two weekend event but canceled due to her pregnancy.
Mrs. Carter donned an off the shoulder cream dress, Mrs. Lawson looked cute in a striped pepum top and black pants and Kelly went with a mint creen top and white distressed denims. Looks like a fun time!
She is expecting her third and fourth grand kids soon as her daughter is expecting twins.
Rowland also posted a photo from the event, captioning a photo of her son during the hunt, “Aww, he is growing locs”.
For Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s 9th wedding anniversary on April 4, the mega star released a clip a lovely love song, assumingly dedicated to her love, a single “Die With You“. She posted it on Instagram and the small sample of the lovely tune plays to the video background of home video footage from her pregnancy with daughter Blue Ivy.
It’s tender and very personal because it reveals never before seen footage of her wedding, getting the number IV tattooed on her fingers and inside the labor and delivery room, moments before she gave birth.
Not only was it a good way to promote her latest track but it also seemed to get back at those incessant rumors and naysayers who do not believe she carried her first child. She’s never been able to shake those who believe she used a surrogate and probably will never convince them otherwise, but these beautiful moments make us smile because we’ve always been a believer.
Do it for your fans and believers, mama. Ignore the rest. The video also includes video of Blue kissing her bare belly full of the brand new twins she and Jay are expecting.
Oh and she also pitched a playlist that includes this song and 63 other tracks with tunes from Michael Jackson, Kanye and Bill Withers. Hmmm! All of our faves in a close to 5 hour playlist. We’re down. But…you gotta get Tidal first to enjoy it! Smart given she and her hubby are part owners of the subscription streaming service.
Beyonce and Jay-Z had a date night and what do you do when you get all dressed up in your nice clothes to go somewhere fancy? You take pics and have an impromptu photo shoot, of course! I am almost 100% certain Jay-Z is the photographer behind the recent slew of photos Beyonce posted on her Tumblr blog this weekend. Here are some of the gorgeous photos of the expectant star all dressed up in an eggplant bump hugging long sleeve dress with runching on the side:
The multiple-award winning artist and her biz mogul husband are expecting a pair of twins. They are parents to 5-year old daughter Blue Ivy Carter.
Because sometimes you cannot pick which one to post, it’s easier to put it in a slide show and that’s just what Queen Bey did. And hers was all creative and stuff with flowers and interlocking images and graphics! Just for her fans on Instagram. Check them out!
