Beyonce 'had given up trying to conceive' before falling pregnant with twins
Dejected Beyonce “had given up” trying to conceive before she discovered she was pregnant with twins, it was reported.
The singer and husband Jay Z – who are already parents to five-year-old Blue Ivy – reportedly tried “for years” to add to their family .
The couple are even believed to have been looking into surrogates and adoption after unsuccessful IVF attempts, according to Us Weekly.
Beyonce, 35, revealed in her 2013 HBO documentary ‘Life is but a Dream’ that she suffered a miscarriage before Blue Ivy was born.
But the superstar couple were delighted when “out of nowhere” they fell pregnant with twins.
A source told the magazine: “[Blue] was asking about another baby forever. Now she gets two!”
The pair announced the happy news they were expecting twins with a post on Instagram, where the superstar showed off her burgeoning baby bump.
She captioned the image: “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters (sic)”

Since the announcement, well wishes have flooded in for the pair from a whole host of stars including John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen.
John said: “I’m happy for them. It’s a beautiful thing. They already know that though. They already have a wonderful daughter, they know what it feels like, and I’m excited for them.”
Whilst Chrissy added in a tweet: “But really. Congrats to my best friend Beyonce I love you so much. Hive forever. (sic)”
Rita Ora also sent her best wishes to the couple, congratulating them on their “fantastic” news.
She shared: “I just think from woman to woman, there’s nothing better. It’s fantastic. I wish her nothing but the best for the family and for health and everything. They’re just bosses at what they do. Unfortunately, [I haven’t spoken to them]. I just wanted to congratulate them and all that. They must be getting their phones blowing up.”
