The cat's out of the bag—well, maybe. Following Jay-Z's induction to the Songwriters Hall of Fame—an event which he was noticeably absent from (hmmm)—former President Barack Obama congratulated the rapper in a new video. Not only that, he may have hinted at the sex of Beyoncé's twins! The Bey Hive must be going crazy at the moment.
He began, "I like to think Mr. Carter and I understand each other. Nobody who met us as younger men would've expected us to be where we are today. We know what it's like not to have a father around. We know what it's like not to come from much, and to know people who didn't get the same breaks that we did. So we try to prop open those doors of opportunity so that it's a little easier for those who come up behind us to succeed as well."
And then, the bomb was dropped. "Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, though he's gonna have me beat once those two twins show up. And let's face it, we both have wives who are significantly more popular than we are."
If you want to see (and decide) for yourself, take a look at the video below.
Naturally, the members of the Hive put on their detective caps and Twitter immediately went abuzz. See some of the funny reactions below:
As Bey nears her due date, many in the Hive have speculated that the twins should be here any minute now. Some even claim the twins have already arrived. Twitter is an amazing platform, isn't it?
If we remember correctly, Beyoncé seemingly hinted at the gender of her unborn babies on her website. The star donned a pair of earrings that were featured in the music video for "If I Were a Boy," with fans instantly pondering the sex of her bundles of joy.
The world may never know—until the birth announcement, that is.
