Although there's still been no official word or confirmation from either Beyonce or Jay Z, everyone seems convinced that her twins have been born already.

The question, of course, is why it's taking so long to announce the news - but it seems someone in the immediate family may have already broken the news. Matthew Knowles, Beyonce's father and former manager, tweeted in the past couple of hours that the twins are here.

To say Matthew has a difficult relationship with his daughter is an understatement. Beyonce fired him as manager in 2011, after claims that he was stealing from her. Matthew Knowles was later seen selling memorabilia and posters on his front yard in an attempt to raise money.

As well as this, Knowles has been pretty lippy about his daughter since then - even going so far as to claim that the bust-up between Solange Knowles, Jay Z and Beyonce was all a trick to boost ticket sales and garner media coverage for all concerned.

At any rate, there's still nothing in the form of an official announcement from Beyonce, so take this news with a pinch of salt.
