Mathew Knowles confirms Beyoncé and Jay Z gave birth to twins

Early Sunday morning, Matthew Knowles took to Instagram to announce that Beyoncé and Jay Z had welcomed their twins into the world.
“Happy birthday to the twins! Love, Granddad,” the image on the post read, along with the caption: “They’re here!”
The post seemed to contradict one made by Tina Lawson only one day earlier, in which she wrote in part on Instagram, “God lets things happen in his time not ours! Don’t try to rush him!” which prompted many people to assume that Mama Tina was quashing rumors that the twins had arrived.
Us Weekly also reported multiple sources saying that the twins were a boy and a girl.
The reports come after speculation that Beyoncé was in labor over reports that security was high around an LA hospital.
Back in February, Beyonce and Jay Z announced that they were expecting with a post that has become the most-liked Instagram post of all time showing Beyoncé cradling her baby bump. The post read: “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.”
