Beyonce and Jay-Z are on cloud nine because of their expectancy. An inside source tells PEOPLE exclusively that the ‘Lemonade’ singer and her husband are thrilled to expand their family two times over.
“They wanted another child and after a few years of trying, it’s a great feeling,” the family friend reveals. “Beyonce’s very happy.”
Queen Bey expressed her desire to have more kids during an interview with ABC News last year. “I would like more children,” the singer shared. “I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being big sister.”
The singer also gave insight on her motherly instincts. “I am very protective,” Bey admitted. “I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life … in the back of my mind, she’s my priority.”
Beyonce will soon have three heart beats to prioritize, and Blue will have double company when the twins arrive. “We have been blessed two times over,” Beyonce told Instagram fans in a pleasantly shocking pregnancy announcement last week. “We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes.”
The twins will make Beyonce and Jay-Z the proud parents of three kids. Blue celebrated her fifth birthday last month. Beyonce and Jay-Z mark their nine-year wedding anniversary in April.
