Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Beybies
The wait for Beyonce and Jay-Z’s twin “Beybies” is finally over. US Weekly confirmed that Beyonce gave birth to her twins earlier this week.
The sex of the twins was kept a secret, with some fans speculating if former President Obama had unintentionally revealed the gender of the twins in a tribute to the iconic couple of the music industry by laying out blue and pink balloons shaped like baby feet. The couple gave birth to a baby boy and baby girl at a local Los Angeles Hospital.

The mistrial denied a final verdict to the dozens of women that accused Cosby of decades of heinous sexual acts. The panel of jurors debated evidence for up to 12 hours a day, but could not reach a unanimous verdict on Cosby’s alleged actions against Andrea Constand.
