Rihanna writes sweet note to her “big bro” Jay Z to congratulate him and Beyoncé

Everybody loves baby news! The news that Beyoncé and Jay Z are expecting twins spread so fast and thoroughly, that even our totally pop-culture ignorant dads mentioned it. It’s all the internet could talk about, and people from all over the world took time to express congratulations. Celebs like Rita Ora and Brie Larson sent excited tweets, and then Rihanna joined in with the sweetest message.

The Work singer took to Instagram shortly after the news broke to shout her joy for the couple, writing,

“So excited about this news!!!! Congratulations to you @beyonce and my big bro Jay!!!! ????”


Jay Z and the Single Ladies singer, from whom we haven’t heard much in recent months, are already parents to five-year-old Blue Ivy.

Rihanna was signed to Jay Z’s record label as a teenager. She and Beyoncé have long been the subjects of speculative rumors regarding beef between them. Jay Z launched RiRi’s career, and the two share a close relationship.

Who knows. All we know for sure is that a Beyoncé-bred kingdom of baby Bey’s is all the world has ever needed. We also know we love Rihanna, and she sure seems to have tons of love for Queen Bee. So, we’re all good.

And, we are FEELING Brie.

And all the other celebs who are gushing about the news.


In fact, Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement got over 1.5 million likes on IG in a half hour.

That’s some power, right there.
