Beyoncé’s father confirms the arrival of twins

Beyoncé’s father Mathew Knowles has confirmed the arrival of her twins as he wished them a Happy Birthday on social media.

The 35-year-old singer and her husband Jay Z – who already have five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy together – were believed to have welcomed the two newest additions to their brood after reports of the birth surfaced in the early hours of Sunday (18.06.17) morning, and now the star’s father Mathew Knowles has confirmed the happy news.

Taking to Twitter, Mathew posted a picture of a birthday note which read: “Happy Birthday to the twins! Love, Granddad.”

And he captioned the snap: “They’re here!#beyonce #twins #jayz #happybirthday (sic)”

Mathew also posted the same picture on his Instagram account, which featured the same caption.

Meanwhile, all other details on the birth have yet to be announced.

The power couple – who got married in 2008 – announced they were adding to their brood in February when the ‘Formation’ hitmaker posted a photograph of her burgeoning baby bump on her social networking sites.

She wrote at the time: “We would like to share our love and happiness. 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. (sic)”

The pair have remained relatively silent throughout the pregnancy but Beyonce’s mother Tina Knowles hasn’t been able to contain her excitement.

She said recently: “I’m so excited. I can’t wait.”

And 63-year-old Tina – who is also mother to 30-year-old singer Solange Knowles – has also praised her eldest daughter for being an “incredible parent”.

She said: “[Beyoncé and Jay Z are] incredible parents. She’s a really good mom. Really patient and kind. [My biggest lesson was] teaching them that what is on the inside counts more than what’s on the outside. I see her passing it on, and it makes me really proud because that was my biggest lesson.”

    The ruling sounds naive with clever way of shirting around the issue and the environment the country is in. May be filing the case before the Supreme Court might be the way to go however, with no deputy CJ as well and the time left before the elections, it might be a case of too much within a very short time left. Governance systems are very clever but its better late than never!!

      If they take this route(supreme court),it means they agree with the ruling including the order they pay the costs that i believe shall ran to at least 200 million shillings.this is to be paid by the individual busybodies because the ngo,s are not legal persons. the winners should pursue this vigorously to shame this busybodies and make them know that seeking publicity at someones expense when there is no cause has consequences.

    This was nonsense on stilts from the get-go. A student studying law at UON would have told you as much. The civil society group was asking the High Court to rule on a hypothetical situation. They have not been convicted in any Court of law and neither jailed for six months. Therefore one cannot presuppose their guilt at the ICC. Chapter 6 of the constitution is very clear. The integrity broached in this chapter applies to appointed persons and NOT elected ones. Vetting in elective positions can only be done by the IEBC. The two gentlemen were cleared to run and hence the suit was overtaken by events. And then they lodged the case in the wrong jurisdiction. Any matter arising from election of a President or his Deputy is the province of the Supreme Court. But we all know the motive behind this suit and the masters that foot the bill. Well, it has been dismissed. Next!….coz this juggernaut is unstoppable baby!!

      It was not dismissed, the court simply does not have jurisdiction on the matter, in simple language my friend the case has not been heard. Stop opening the champagne bottles yet.

        It was dismissed and orders for costs against the petitioners given. I should request Jubilee to buy champagne bottles with this money for immediate popping in celebration.

    When this case was first filed i wrote on this forum that the judgement would be as follows : Fools go and look for something better to do.For by then both Uhuru and Ruto had not even been nominated-nay they were still in their “old parties” and had only declared intent.How on earth does the court rule on someones intent to run for office? The courts cannot be used as toilets by political thugs and hack-men to pass their “gas” to scare Kenyans “out of the room”. Some of these thugs used the case to earn favors from their sponsors and got elected to parliament.They went ahead to rig themselves in the nominations and still talk about INTEGRITY! They could not “serve” the other candidates because those “went Mteja Hapatikani” only Uhuru and Ruto “were available”. The argument that there is a “likely hood” that the two could be elected and hence the court should stop them is the most bizarre argument ever in a court of law. It is not the work of the court to stop them- IT IS FOR THE VOTERS TO DECIDE.You cannot win a game by stopping it from happening.Unknown to the small mind NGO political hecklers is that the constitution states that should a candidate nominated by IEBC die during the election period- the elections will not proceed.A new game will have to start so that voters have a CHOICE and the party can nominate another candidate. This is wise because looking at what these guys have tried they could “eliminate” all other candidates and hope to win “unopposed”. Go back to the bag and look for the next trick guys- it will not work.By your acts you have helped elect the duo without a sweat by rallying Kenyans behind them for “free”.
