Beyoncé Knowles has reportedly given birth to twins in Los Angeles. However, unlike other moments during her pregnancy Beyoncé and husband Jay Z are yet to make a public announcement. A source close to the couple said to PEOPLE, ““Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends.” Jay Z, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy are elated with the birth of the twins.  Beyoncé first announced her pregnancy with a lavish photo spread on her website and followed that up with a dramatic and spectacular performance at the Grammys in an outfit that showcased her protruding baby bump. Previously Beyoncé had feted the new additions to her family with a lavish baby shower that had tennis star Serena Williams in attendance.

The baby shower was attended by Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles, Destiny’s Child band mates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland. La La Anthony and Vanessa Bryant were also in attendance. Beyoncé had shared a picture of the giant henna tattoo over her belly bump on her Instagram accounts. She wore a bra and a low-slung skirt that showed off the henna tattoo. Beyoncé had been sharing pictures of her bump throughout her pregnancy but by the third week of May she was eagerly waiting to see her twin babies. Tina Knowles added that, “By third week of May Beyoncé was ready to see her babies.” Beyonce looks beautiful with mehendi-covered baby bump at her baby shower (See Pictures)

Tina Knowles was asked about the parenting techniques she used with her own daughters. She replied, “My biggest lesson was teaching them that what is on the inside counts more than what’s on the outside. I see [Beyoncé] passing it on, and it makes me really proud because that was my biggest lesson.” The baby twins have an elder sister in 5-year-old Blue Ivy. Congrats to Jay Z and Beyoncé Knowles.
