The Beyhive is a-buzzing! Nay, the whole damn world is buzzing because Beyoncé just gave birth to two little bees. Yes, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have officially welcomed their twins into the world. OMG! Take a breather, have a seat, and sip some lemonade because this news is big!

Back in February of this year, Beyoncé sent the Internet ablaze with the news she and her husband Jay Z were expecting not just one baby, but two. "We would like to share our love and happiness," the superstar songstress wrote on Instagram, captioning a now famous photo of her posing in lingerie and a veil and holding her growing belly among wreaths of flowers. "We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. —The Carters"

According to a new update from TMZ, the twins were reportedly born premature, and are "under the lights" until further notice. According to the entertainment source, the term essentially means the babies have jaundice due to elevated bilirubin levels, which is typically common among preemies and isn't dangerous.

With the news that the couple's five-year-old, Blue Ivy, will soon be scoring two siblings, the world went on baby(s) bump watch, as Beyoncé indulged her fans with a too-cool maternity shoot where Bey looked like a bonafide pregnant goddess.

And after sharing photos from her baby shower—dubbed the Carter Family Push Party—last month, we knew that the big day had to be right around the corner. And now, it's finally arrived!

Several news outlets including People magazine have confirmed that Beyoncé has given birth to her little ones earlier this week. "Bey and Jay are thrilled and have started sharing the news with their family and closest friends," a source shared with People. And Beyoncé's father himself also confirmed the news via social media.

On Sunday, June 18, Mathew Knowles took to Twitter and Instagram to welcome his new grandchildren into the world, posting a graphic that reads "Happy Birthday to the twins! Love, Grandad."

Despite the Internet speculation that she was expecting two boys (she was wearing those earrings from her "If I Were a Boy" music video, after all!), Entertainment Tonight reports that the Grammy-winning singer and her hubby have welcomed both a little boy and a little girl! Although, the stars themselves have yet to confirm the genders of their twins.

No word yet either on what Jay Z and Beyoncé have dubbed the newest members of their brood, but maybe they incorporated some other colors into their monikers, perhaps? Just imagine a Christmas card featuring Blue, Green, and Pink Ivy. TBH, we doubt the world would be able to handle it.

We're also waiting on the first photos to be released of the new Knowles-Carter babies. (And not so patiently, we might add.)
