Beyoncé’s father, Mathew Knowles, revealed in an interview on Friday that he had no idea about Beyoncé’s pregnancy. He said he was shocked and only learned of the news after receiving 200+ texts of congratulations, the day Bey shared her first pregnancy photo on social media. While chatting with CBS’s The Insider, it became apparent why Grandpa Knowles was left in the dark about Bey’s forthcoming little ones… and its because he can’t keep his mouth shut.
Yes, during the interview, it seemed that Papa Knowles may have revealed that his daughter is having fraternal twins–one boy and one girl. When reflecting on Blue Ivy’s coming role as a big sister, he let this slip: “…Blue Ivy’s gonna have some brothers and sisters.”
He retracted the statement when the reported called him out on it, “Does that mean that Beyoncé’s having a boy and a girl?”
To which he explained, “Oh, I don’t know. I just, kind of threw that out because I don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl, so you have to say brother or sister.”
Surrrre, Mathew! 😉
While we can’t confirm this news, we can say that going forward Beyoncé’s outspoken father needs to keep his trap shut.
