Jay Z could soon be outnumbered!
The 47-year-old rapper, who is expecting twins with wife Beyoncé, became the first hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday. Jay Z was unable to attend the event, but Barack Obama praised him for his work over the years, and there was a line in the prerecorded video message about family that caught our attention.
“Jay and I are also fools for our daughters,” said Obama, who shares two daughters, Malia, 18, and Sasha, 16, with wife Michelle. “Although he’s gonna have me beat once those twins show up.”
Uh, hold up — did the former president accidentally just reveal Bey and Jay are having girls?!?
The power couple is already parents to 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, so having twin girls would put them one daughter ahead of the Obamas,
However, while the comment sent the Beyhive into overdrive, a source told ET that the former POTUS “doesn’t know the gender of Jay Z and Beyonce’s twins.”
“Mr. Obama was not referring to the sex of the twins. He was referring to his own daughters,” the source explained. “When he says, ‘our daughters’ he is referring to the children that both men currently have. At the moment, they both just have daughters, so he is in fact talking about Sasha, Malia and Blue Ivy.”
“When he says, ‘He’s got me beat with twins,'” the source added, “he meant that Jay Z and Beyoncé will have more children than him pretty soon.”
Although Beyoncé and Jay Z have yet to confirm the sex of baby No. 2 and No. 3, they haven’t been shy about sharing the “Sorry” singer’s pregnancy journey via social media.
Queen Bey announced she was expecting in February with stunning snaps from a bohemian pregnancy shoot. Since then, we’ve seen plenty of baby bumpin’ pics, all showcasing the singer’s impeccable maternity style.
Last month, ET caught up with Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles, at the Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland premiere, who gave us an update on how her daughter is doing.
“She’s doing great,” she exclaimed. “She’s just ready to — you know, she’s ready to see her babies.”
