Beyonce and Jay Z may be one of the most iconic power couples of our generation, but they didn't get there overnight. According to a source close to the family, Bey and Jay went through a period where things were strained between them, to say the least.
"It is not a secret that Beyonce and Jay had huge problems a couple of years ago," said People's source this week. "It was obvious to everyone that spent time with them."
It was the couple's 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy who helped keep them together, the anonymous insider explained.
"Even though they didn't get along great, they were together a lot because of Blue," the source continued. "There was always tension in the air, but they both worked very hard to get to the place where they are now."
"They are very excited about adding babies to the family," added the source about Bey and Jay's twins, Rumi and Sir Carter. "Jay was great during Beyonce's pregnancy and continues to be great. He loves being a dad and Beyonce seems very happy."
They certainly seem happy. Check out Bey's latest IG couple shot below.
