Beyoncé and her father Matthew Knowles have a strained relationship at the best of times. Something tells us one of those times may well be now, after he let slip some rather personal information on Twitter.
According to Papa Knowles, the singer has already given birth to her twins with Jay Z. He posted a makeshift birthday meme on social media, which read: “They’re here! Happy Birthday to the twins!”

Further sources appear to have confirmed the revelation to E! News, adding that the pair were born “at a Los Angeles-area hospital”.
The gender of the babies is not yet known.
Beyonce announced her pregnancy on Instagram in a spectacular series of images taken from the mother of all maternity shoots.
“We would like to share our love and happiness,” she wrote alongside one image. “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 announcement went on to break Instagram records and become the most “liked” post on the social media platform.
The twins join five-year-old big sister Blue Ivy.
The Carters have yet to officially comment on the rumours.
