Beyonce and Jay Z‘s twins arrived ahead of time.
The babies were born prematurely and are being treated for jaundice, TMZ has reported. There was no immediate word on the gender of the babies or their names.
The pair have not left the hospital since arriving eight days ago; it was previously reported doctors had opted to keep them in for a ‘minor issue.’
The siblings will have spent most of their first days under ‘bili lights,’ phototherapy designed to eliminate high levels of bilirubin in the blood.
Jaundice is quite common among newborns, especially preterm births; twins are more susceptible since they are rarely carried to full term.
The superstar singer and her mogul husband, who married in 2008, are also parents to a five-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
