"We would like to share our love and happiness," Mr. and Mrs. Carter wrote. "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 good wishes."
The announcement almost brought the internet to a standstill as Beyonce posted photos showing her pronounced baby bump. The couple, who have been together for eight years, have another child, Ivy, who is five years old.
Many people took to social media to congratulate the couple, while others brought up theories on a lot of issues like; predicting the sex of the yet to be born twins. The meaning of the photo set up that the singer posted, others thought the pictures were weird, some tabloids tried to put a connection to art and the posted photo.
Others wondered how the pregnancy had gone unnoticed for such a long time.
In 2011 when Beyonce announced she was pregnant, many skeptics called the baby bump fake and it must have been the reason the celebrated singer was scantily dressed to leave no doubt.
The photo though provided a welcome relief from the events of the US general elections which have been divisive. Friend and foe all united to congratulate the hit maker on the good news.
