Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement was a ray of light in what has felt like unrelieved darkness for...months? Years? Wow, time and hope have flown by! We can’t rest on the laurels of one superstar’s pregnancy, but watching the development of these two celebrity babies was definitely something I was looking forward to. Well, Mathew Knowles may have ruined the big surprise we've all been waiting for.
The Mirror reports that Beyoncé’s dad Mathew Knowles may have accidentally spilled the beans on Bey’s Great Expectations. In an interview, Knowles stated, “I’m extremely proud and happy, both with Jay and her. And Blue Ivy is going to have some brothers and sisters. She is already excited.”
Um, hold up. Did he just ruin a future Instagram reveal for all of us...or was he just trying to keep the tides even by naming a boy and girl?!
It's funny because Knowles says that he found out about the twins when friends and students at Texas Southern University - where he teaches classes about the entertainment industry - started texting him "Congratulations" after they saw her announcement online. This is definitely a stark contrast to Mama Tina Lawson who was elated that the cat was finally out the bag on the day Bey broke Instagram. It looks like his daughter gave Knowles as little info as possible, and now it's pretty clear why: he's a spoiler.
On the up-side, we can't say for sure if he spoiled it or not, but even if he did, at least gender is a construct. There’s really no way to know for sure what gender Beyoncé’s babies will be until they grow up and tell us. May humanity survive to get that social media announcement.
