Update July 14 at 10:13 a.m.: Bey and Jay have been keeping quiet since the birth of their new twins, even if the paparazzi (and Beyonce's dad) haven't. But today, the queen broke the silence.
Beyonce posted a picture of her holding the two 1-month-old babies, Sir Carter and Rumi, in front of a floral arrangement that looks strikingly similar to the one she used for her pregnancy announcement. (Admittedly, it looks less like a JCPenney backdrop this time.)
According to Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles, one is a boy and one is a girl. Still, some internet users were comically confused by the names. The media picked up wind of the twins' names after Jay-Z and Beyonce filed for trademarks of them. Seriously.
Pop music superstar Beyonce Knowles-Carter announced on Instagram that she's pregnant with twins. That means Beyonce and Jay Z's 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy will be a big sister. Two times over.
The Lemonade singer was last in Dallas in May 2016, performing at AT&T Stadium, home to the Dallas Cowboys. She and husband Jay Z performed together at the same venue in July 2014, in what was one of the biggest shows ever in Dallas-Fort Worth, given that it was performed by the reigning king and queen of pop.
Beyonce and celebrities like her are using Instagram as a way to share pertinent information with fans. In January, Beyonce, posted a simple "thank you" with a photo of Barack and Michelle Obama. In July 2016, she put up a short video dedicated to the men who died during the Dallas shooting.
Some say an Instagram post around Christmastime, showing Beyonce holding up two fingers, was a sneak peek at her baby-on-board news.
Some web users were quick to point out that Beyonce's maternity photo looks like it was taken at a JCPenney. It sounds like a diss -- and it probably is -- but the smart social folks at Plano-based JCPenney used it to their advantage. Some funny tweets:
