Hold Up… Beyonce is pregnant! The Grammy winner announced on Wednesday, February 1, that she’s expecting twins with husband of nearly nine years Jay Z.

The Lemonade hitmaker 35, took to Instagram to announce the news, sharing a creative, boudoir photo of herself clad in lingerie. In the image, Beyonce cradles her bare, growing baby bump in front of what resembles a blooming, lush, floral altar.

“We would like to share our love and happiness,” the “Formation” singer expressed in her message. “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. – The Carters.”

Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles, also joined her daughter in sharing the joyous baby news on Wednesday. “WOW I don’t have to keep the secret anymore,” the mom of Beyonce and Solange expressed. “I am soooo happy,” she added. “God is so good twin blessings.”

The couple’s 3-year-old daughter Blue Ivy will soon be the oldest of three children.
