The hip-hop world learned Jay Z's family just got a little bigger earlier this week. Beyoncé  shared the news she was once again pregnant -- this time, with twins -- and used her Instagram account to highlight the moment.

“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over," reads the caption for Beyoncé's post, which features the singer showing off her baby bump. "We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes."

When Queen Bey gives birth to the two newest additions to her family, which will likely be this spring or summer, Jay Z will join the list of rappers who've fathered twins or triplets. A few names on that list have collaborated with the Jigga Man more than a few times over the last 20 years.

Diddy and his former girlfriend Kimberly Porter welcomed twin daughters D'Lila Star and Jessie James in 2006, while Pharrell Williams' wife Helen Lasichanh welcomed triplets just a few days ago.
