Feb. 1 (UPI) — Superstar couple Beyoncé and Jay Z are expecting twins.
The 35-year-old singer announced Wednesday on Instagram that she’s pregnant and expecting twin children with the 47-year-old rapper.
“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over,” Beyoncé captioned a photo of her baby bump.
“We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes,” she added.
Beyoncé and Jay Z married in 2008, and are already parents to 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy. The singer said in an ad for her performance wear line, Ivy Park, in September that her daughter inspired the collection.
“When I’m about to give up, I picture that one person that I love more than anyone,” she shared in the promo. “I picture them wherever they are in the world and I imagine myself running towards them. I see their face and they’re smiling and cheering. They’re so proud of me.”
Beyoncé last released the album “Lemonade” in April, which includes the singles “Formation” and “All Night.” She is nominated for nine awards, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year, at the 2017 Grammy Awards, which will air Feb. 12 on CBS.
