NEW YORK — Beyonce and Jay Z are expecting, the singer announced Wednesday, a little over a month after their first child turned 5.

In an Instagram post, the 35-year-old mom hinted that she's having twins:

We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. - The Carters

Beyonce revealed the news with a photo of her sporting a noticeable bump, surrounded by flowers and wearing a light green veil.

The couple's daughter, Blue Ivy, turned 5 in January.

To say Queen Bey's surprise caused a buzz would be an understatement. In the first 45 minutes after her announcement, 500,000 tweets were posted talking about the news -- hitting 17,000 tweets-per-minute at its peak, according to Twitter Data.
