The royal family  — well, America’s unofficial royal family of culture and cool – just announced two additions to its court.

On her Instagram account, actress-singer-queen Beyonce announced that she and husband Jay Z are expecting twins.

Queen Bey has not said how far along she is in her pregnancy, but did show off a sizable belly and an appropriately fierce look for a mama-to-be. The birth of Bey and Jay’s twins will bring the Carter clan to a total of five; daughter Blue Ivy is 5 years old.
