As the Beyhive continues buzzing up a storm that the "Crazy in Love" singer is in labor and close to giving birth, It was learned that Jay Z was not able to attend the 48th Annual Songwriters Hall Of Fame Induction and Awards Gala in New York City. The Grammy winner was slated to accept the honor of being the first rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall.
"Thank you to all the people that have inspired me," he shared on Twitter this evening.

Not only does he have 21 Grammys but now he's being inducted into the songwriters Hall of Fame! Go on Shawn Carter (damn spellcheck) with your bad self !!" Tina wrote to her followers. "I am a proud mother in law❤️❤️Blue's daddy, Beyonce's husband Mrs. Gloria's son, Mickey and Annie and Eric's Brother. Mrs. Hatties grandson ........."

On Wednesday afternoon, Solange grabbed a bite to eat at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood with her husband Alan Ferguson. As for Tina, she enjoyed the first part of her day at the Disneyland Resort.
"Just finished a trip with Tina's Angels and Richards warriors! To Disneyland!" she wrote on Instagram while making the hour-long drive from Anaheim to Los Angeles. "It was hott but fun !! It was our trip to kick Off summer vacation! The kids were great fun ! Check out my micky hat."
"We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over," she captioned the Instagram photo that received more than 11 million likes. "We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. - The Carters."
And while the Grammy winner has kept a relatively low-profile during this pregnancy, a source recently shed some light on how the proud mom was feeling.
With excitement only growing for the birth of Beyoncé and Jay Z's newest family members, a source tells us that both mom and dad know the sex of their babies. They are, however, choosing not to share quite yet.
All will be revealed soon and we can't wait!
