Beyoncé and Jay Z announced that they’re expecting twins last week, 5 years after the birth of their first-born, Blue Ivy. As calculated as Bey and Jay are, many thought it was their plan to wait until Blue was this age to welcome siblings into the fold, but according to US Magazine, this has been years in the making!

A source close to the couple told the mag that they “had been trying and trying to conceive,” and Bey was “frustrated” after unsuccessful in vitro fertilization treatments. “They were looking into surrogates and adoption.”

Finally, they said, it stuck and they are “over the moon.” And how does Blue feel about it?

“She was asking about another baby forever. Now she gets two!”

Congrats again to our fave couple!
