Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their new twins this week. The babies were born Monday but the family has remained at the hospital due to a "minor issue" with the twins, according to TMZ. All this past week, speculations arose around whether or not the birth had occurred. Based on the timeline provided by TMZ, it appears that speculation was correct. Official confirmation of the twins' birth arrived Saturday night via People. Beyonce's father, Mathew Knowles, also took to Twitter today to celebrate and announce the twins' birth.

It is unclear when Beyonce and her children will be released from the hospital. She and Jay-Z have yet to make any formal announcement of their own.

The birth has been a long time coming. Back in February, Beyonce took to Instagram to announce her pregnancy, effectively shattering records of how many likes one photo has received (at this time, the photo has garnered over 11 million likes). The ethereal announcement photo featured Beyonce sitting among flowers with a green veil over her head, her hands gently holding her burgeoning baby bump. Then, despite performing at the Grammy's, she pulled out of Coachella on her doctor's advice.
