People all over the world are celebrating the new additions to the Knowles-Carter family. Beyoncé and JAY-Z reportedly welcomed their twins last Monday, however, they arrived with some minor complications. According to TMZ, the twins were born premature and are now “under the lights” for recovery.
A source says Beyoncé did not experience a full-term pregnancy and the twins have been in the hospital for the last week due to a “minor issue.” When newborns are “under the lights,” it usually means the babies have jaundice (a yellowish tent to the skin) because of elevated bilirubin levels. The lights are supposed to lower bilirubin in the blood so the jaundice can be eliminated. Jaundice is common among premature babies and is usually not dangerous. It’s also not uncommon for multiples to be born early, so the twins should be alright.
We wish the Carter family the best as their babies are nursed to health! We’ll keep you posted with any major updates.
