(4 April 2008 - present) (3 children)
The couple first met when Beyonce was still a member of Destiny's Child. "I was 18 when we first met, 19 when we started dating," she told Glamour magazine. It was speculated that the two were dating back in 2002, after they collaborated and starred in his "Bonnie & Clyde" music video.
Beyonce is believed to have first started a relationship with Jay-Z after a collaboration on "'03 Bonnie & Clyde", which appeared on his seventh album The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse. Beyonce appeared as Jay-Z's girlfriend in the music video for the song, which would further fuel speculation of their relationship. On April 4, 2008, Beyonce and Jay-Z were married without publicity. As of April, 2014, the couple have a sold a combined 300 million records together. The couple are known for being private about their relationship, although they have appeared to become more relaxed in recent years. Beyoncé suffered a miscarriage sometime around 2010 or 2011, describing it as "the saddest thing" she had ever been through. Beyonce returned to the studio and wrote music in order to cope with the loss. In April 2011, Beyonce and Jay-Z traveled to Paris in order to shoot the album cover for her 4; she would fall unexpectedly pregnant here.
In August, the couple attended the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, in which Beyoncé performed "Love on Top" and started the performance saying "Tonight I want you to stand up on your feet, I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me". At the end of the performance, Beyonce dropped her microphone, unbuttoned her blazer and rubbed her stomach, confirming her pregnancy that she had alluded to earlier in the evening. Her pregnancy announcement was listed in Guinness World Records for "most tweets per second recorded for a single event" on Twitter, receiving 8,868 tweets per second[ and "Beyonce pregnant" was the most Googled term the week of August 29, 2011.
On January 7, 2012, Beyoncé gave birth to a daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York under heavy security. Two days later, Jay-Z released "Glory", a song dedicated to their child, on his website Lifeandtimes.com. The song detailed the couple's pregnancy struggles, including a miscarriage Beyoncé suffered before becoming pregnant. Blue Ivy's cries are included at the end of the song, and she was officially credited as B.I.C. on it. At two days old, she became the youngest person ever to appear on a Billboard chart when "Glory" debuted on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The couple unsuccessfully attempted to trademark the name Blue Ivy to start a line of merchandise.
February 1,2017
Beyonce announced
on Instagram Wednesday, that they're expecting Twins.
"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," she captioned the picture.
The twins will join Blue Ivy Carter, Jay Z and Beyoncé's first child, and if Blue Ivy's childhood is any indication of the fun and fashion to come, consider us prepared for who will be the two most stylish twins to hit Hollywood.
the twins arrived in June 2017.
