Beyoncé’s pregnancy didn’t come as a surprise to at least one of her fans.

People on Twitter have been retweeting a fan account’s tweets from July 2016, when they predicted Beyoncé’s family news. 

Twitter user @beyoncefan66 wrote on 22 July 2016: “Okay so Beyoncé is gonna announce a pregnancy in February 2017.”

On the 28 January 2017, the fan tweeted: “Beyoncé is pregnant. She told me.”

Beyoncé announced that she and husband Jay Z are expecting twins on 1 February 2017.

She broke the news with the photo on her Instagram page and told her followers: “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 singer has previously spoken about expanding her family, telling ABC News in 2013: “I think my daughter needs some company. I definitely love being a big sister. 

“I just want to make sure that she can have a healthy, safe, normal life... and life is completely different now.”
