The lack of confirmation from the couple sent fans into overdrive as they waited for the announcement. However, a new report from TMZ claims that the babies health struggles is the reason for all the secrecy.
According to TMZ, the babies arrived “prematurely” with a source close to the famous family explaining they are being treated for jaundice.
The source explained that the babies are being kept "under the lights," which is a common way to refer to phototherapy, which is designed to eliminate high levels of bilirubin in the blood.
Jaundice is common in newborns and twins that are not carried to full-term, and babies can expect to make a full recovery when treated properly.
Beyonce and Jay Z are yet to publicly comment on these reports, however, with only Bey's father confirming that the twins had indeed arrived.
Sending love to the family as they recover in hospital!
