Did Barack Obama just reveal the sex of Beyoncé and Jay Z’s twins?

That’s a seriously impressive gender reveal…

Barack Obama may have just accidentally revealed the sex of Beyonce and Jay Z's twins… and the Beyhive is not coping.
In a video speech congratulating 47-year-old Jay Z on his recent induction into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, the former leader of the free world hinted that the much-loved couple are expecting twin girls.
“Nobody who met us when we were younger men would have expected us to be where we are today,” the 55-year-old said in the video. “Jay and I are also fools for our daughters, although he’s going to have me beat once those two twins show up.”
Of course, this could mean that he and Jay Z love their respective children, who, right now, happen to only include daughters. But, it could also mean the rapper is about to “beat” the president in the daughter’s stakes with two more mini-mes .
Naturally, the internet has some very compelling thoughts on the matter:
On Tuesday, fans of the couple went into meltdown after Jay Z was reportedly seen leaving his home heading towards the couple's LA medical centre of choice, leading many to believe his wife had gone into labour.
And if you believe the somewhat questionable sources on Twitter, then heavy security was spotted at an LA hospital, with some claiming security staff were carrying two baby seats to a medical facility earlier in the day.
While we mightn’t have any official news just yet, one thing is certain -- whenever music's new reigning twins decide grace the world, they'll be welcomed in style.
According to a Life & Style report, the Lemonade singer spent $660, 589 on an over-the-top nursery that features walk-in closets, a $26,423 mural on the ceiling, and a movie theatre.
"Bey and Jay knocked out a wall between two bedrooms to create a master suite-size nursery inside their LA home,” said a source.
"The twins will have matching cribs and rockers and designer sheets totalling $39,635, plus a $66,058 state-of-the-art sound system."

Beyonce and Jay Z announced they were expecting twins back in February.
At the time, the Grammy winner broke the internet by sharing an ah-mazing picture of herself (and her just-popped belly) kneeling in a scene plunked straight from the mind of Alice In Wonderland author, Lewis Carroll.
The statement read: “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."
Any minute now…
