Beyonce's Twins: Why Are They Still Hospitalized?

by at .  Updated at .

Earlier this week, The Hollywood Gossip became the first outlet in the world to reveal a pair of very cute Beyonce baby photos.

Granted, it was a joke, but it was mostly well received by readers.

The following update on Beyonce, Jay Z and their two newborn children is not a joke, however. It's actually (sort of) serious.

As previously mentioned here and on other websites across the Internet, Beyonce gave birth about a week ago. Maybe you heard?

We don't know the exact date and we don't know the names of the two children at this time. There's a lot of misinformation out there.

We aren't aware of their measurements. We think one is a boy and one is a girl, but even that information can't be verified at this time.

Multiple sources have confirmed, however, that the 35-year-old music superstar actually remains in the hospital with her twins.

The wife of Jay Z is fine personally. She's simply keeping a watchful eye over the newborns, who have yet to come home.

Why? It turns out that's because the babies are suffering from what was originally described as a minor health issue.

As you're about to find out below, this may be true.

But try telling any new parent that his or her newborn, who just came into this world. has been diagnosed with a "minor" health issue.

Nothing is minor when it comes to newborn baby.

According to TMZ, Beyonce gave birth several days earlier than she expected, which gave way to a medical situation.

The kids were born prematurely and are therefore “under the lights,” a source explains to the celebrity news website.

Not many other specifics are available, but this term typically means the babies have jaundice due to elevated bilirubin levels.

A common issue for kids that are not carried to full term, the lights are meant to lower bilirubin in the blood to eliminate the jaundice.

The problem is not considered serious.

But, again, it's serious enough for the twins to still be under doctors' care.

Neither Beyonce nor Jay has said anything about their children just yet.

They have not confirmed this medical condition or even the fact that baby number-two and baby number-three now exist.

But Matthew Knowles, Beyonce's semi-estranged father, Tweeted that he's now a proud grandfather over the weekend.

Despite drawing the ire of some Beyonce fans who think he stole his daughter's thunder ... those fans believe him.

They believe it should have been left to Beyonce to break this exciting news, but it's not like she was in a hurry to do so either.

A multitude of websites had already done so, and Matthew didn't reveal anything about the kids except for the fact that they now exist.

We'll continue to keep fans updated with the status of Beyonce - notoriously tight-lipped about her life when she wants to be - and her twins.

We don't expect any real photos of the kids to be released any time soon, but it wouldn't surprise us if the famous couple made a short and simple statement.

Once everyone was home safe and sound from the hospital, we might here something from them. Until then, we'll continue to send our prayers.

And we'll continue to speculate on possible names as well. Hmmm....
