Beyoncé and Jay Z will soon be a family of five – the ecstatic couple announced Wednesday on Instagram that they are expecting twins!
“We would like to share our love and happiness,” Beyonce wrote. “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.”
Beyonce, 35, and Jay Z, 47, are already parents to 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
Accompanying the sweet message was a risqué photo of Beyonce wearing a long sheer veil, purple bra and baby-blue briefs while cradling her bare bump against a gorgeous floral arrangement.
The news has friends and associates wondering if the pregnancy is a last-ditch effort to save their marriage.
“They’ve had some serious marital problems recently, and Beyonce was very close to leaving Jay Z for good,” says a close pal. “She’s had to deal with a lot, especially all the rumors of Jay Z cheating. It’s been difficult for Bey. She even stopped wearing her wedding ring for a spell.
“But all that has been forgiven, for now, as they await the birth of two babies. Boys, girls or one of each, they will be glad to just have two healthy babies.
“They’ve managed to patch up their marriage for the time being. This pregnancy has given them hope in the relationship again. They are both over the moon with joy!”
