After Beyonce’s release of her visual album, Lemonade, last year, speculation that she and Jay Z might be heading for divorce began to plague the celebrity couple. Lemonade featured songs that supposedly dealt with the pain and suffering Beyonce went through due to Jay Z’s alleged infidelities.
However, throughout the year, Beyonce and Jay Z have put on a united front. The couple appeared to be working on their marriage, spending time with their daughter, and apparently making two more babies.
Beyonce and Jay Z took a break from their hectic lives during a pause in Beyonce’s World Formation Tour to vacation in Italy with their daughter, according to Daily Mail.
The singer spent some quality time hopping around Italy aboard a luxury yacht with her family.
In 2013, Beyonce revealed she had suffered a miscarriage prior to the arrival of her daughter, Blue Ivy.
‘About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time. And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life.
‘I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like. I was feeling very maternal.
In the singer’s 2013 HBO documentary, Life Is But A Dream, Beyonce confirmed that her song “Heaven” was inspired by the loss of her unborn baby.
“I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life. And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”
But Beyonce also described pregnancy as “falling in love” and “feeling overjoyed,” so congratulations to the happy couple on their exciting news of twins!
“Being pregnant was very much like falling in love. You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone.”
