Carrying twins is no small task — just ask Beyoncé!

While the pregnant star, 35, hasn’t shied away from sharing glimpses of her maternity style on Instagram, the always-private singer hasn’t spoken out much since announcing she was pregnant with twins — and a source alleges that’s because she is having a “harder” time compared to when she was pregnant with now-five-year-old Blue Ivy.

“[Bey is having a] harder time this pregnancy with keeping up her energy,” a source tells E! News. Of course, this time Mrs. Jay Z is carrying two babies — not to mention, she has to keep up with her daughter!

Even though she may not have the smoothest pregnancy, she is certainly enjoying it — especially when it comes to treating herself (Bey typically follows an incredible strict diet).

“She loves being pregnant,” the source alleges. “She splurges when she wants to and hasn’t taken her weight gain as a negative thing. She is a confident woman in her skin whatever size she is [and] embraces it.”

While the news of the Carter twins comes after rampant speculation that Jay Z and Beyoncé were on the rocks — which many people believed after she cryptically alluded to an affair with a mistress she dubbed “Becky With the Good Hair” in her song “Sorry” — the source insists things have never been better for the husband and wife, who will be celebrating their ninth wedding anniversary next month.

“The love [between Jay Z and Beyoncé] is authentic and real,” the source gushes. “Jay is a good dad and husband. He’d do anything for Bey.”

While we don’t have an exact due date for the new Bey-bies, we’re already eagerly waiting their arrival.

Bey and Jay announced their news with an Instagram post — that has since become the most-liked photo of all time. In it, she wrote, “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.”
