Beyonce and Jay Z welcomed twins earlier this week, according to multiple published reports. TMZ says that the twins -- reportedly a boy and a girl -- were born Monday in a Los Angeles hospital. Billboard has reached out to Beyonce’s rep for comment.

Rumors that the 35-year-old Lemonade singer was in labor began to captivate the Twittersphere after a "significant amount" of security was spotted at a hospital in L.A. Coupled with earlier reports that the couple spent $1 million to build a maternity ward in their Hollywood mansion, the news rapidly overtook the Internet.

The Carters first announced that they were expecting twins in February through a now-viral Instagram post, which pictured Bey flaunting her bare belly before a flower display.
