Despite the complications, the twins are expected to be OK as well.

It has not been confirmed when the newborns will be given a clean bill of health and be allowed to go home.

Queen Bey and Jay Q welcomed their twins at the renowned UCLA Medical Center in the Westwood section of West Los Angeles, as rolling out previously reported.

In February, Beyoncé announced that she was pregnant with twins by posting on Instagram, “We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two.” Beyoncé was initially scheduled to headline Coachella, but she canceled the performance and said she would plan to perform at the popular event in 2018.
