The Carter-Knowles clan is staying mum for the moment—Beyoncé's last Instagram post was 18 days ago, and her African-themed baby shower was nearly a month ago. For the Beyhive, the fortnight of silent anticipation has truly been the best of times and the worst of times. Even in our excitement at this hallowed moment, we're mourning Beyoncé's bold and body-positive pregnancy style.
There's no official word yet on names or any other baby info. “Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends,” is as much as People's source would share on the record.
Still, the internet is buzzing that former president Barack Obama might have inadvertently leaked the babies' sex. In a speech delivered via video inducting Jay-Z into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Friday—making him the first hip-hop artist to receive the honor—Obama declared "Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s gonna have me beat once those two twins show up.”
Frankly, I don't think being Beyoncé's favorite president gets Obama access to this kind of classified Illuminati info, but there's at least a 25 percent chance that he's right.
