The lyrics of several songs spoke about being cheated on, and regretting being married. But Beyoncé made clear in the final tracks of the album and in music videos featuring Jay-Z that she had decided to stay in the relationship. The birth of Blue Ivy caused a paparazzi storm in 2012, with New York’s Lenox Hill hospital shutting down part of its maternity wing to accommodate music’s royal couple. The award-winning singer, 35, and rapper and music producer Jay Z, already have a five-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. Reuters could not verify the reports. News of the pregnancy came less than a year after the release of Beyoncé’s 2016 album Lemonade, in which she appeared to address long-standing rumours of trouble in her eight-year marriage. The Lemonade singer, one of the most powerful women in the music business, announced the pregnancy on her Instagram account in February along with an image of her posed in lingerie and caressing a noticeable baby bump. Us Weekly, also citing multiple unidentified sources, reported that the couple welcomed twins earlier this week. She has since posted numerous pictures of her bare baby bump on her social media accounts. A representative for Beyoncé did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
