The 47-year-old rapper, who is expecting twins with wife Beyoncé, became the first hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame on Thursday. Jay Z was unable to attend the event, but Barack Obama praised him for his work over the years, and there was a line in the prerecorded video message about family that caught our attention.
"Jay and I are also fools for our daughters," said Obama, who shares two daughters, Malia, 18, and Sasha, 16, with wife Michelle. "Although he's gonna have me beat once those twins show up."
Uh, hold up -- did the former president accidentally just reveal Bey and Jay are having girls?!?
The power couple is already parents to 5-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, so having twin girls would put them one daughter ahead of the Obamas,
However, while the comment sent the Beyhive into overdrive, a source told ET that the former POTUS doesn't know the gender of Jay Z and Beyonce's twins.
Mr. Obama was not referring to the sex of the twins, he was referring to his own daughters, the source explained. When he says, "our daughters," he is referring to the children that both men currently have. At the moment, they both just have daughters, the source added, so he is in fact talking about Sasha, Malia and Blue Ivy.
The source also noted that when he says, "He's got me beat with twins," he meant that Jay Z and Beyoncé will have more children than him pretty soon.
