If I were (having) a boy! Beyoncé spurs speculation that she is pregnant with twin SONS after sharing images of herself wearing the same earrings she sported in the video for her hit song

  • The 35-year-old announced last month that she is expecting twins
  • In new images shared online, she is seen wearing the familiar earrings, which fans have taken as a sign she is having boys
  • Bey has been known to hint subtly in the past, and flashed a peace sign - or the number two - weeks before telling the world about her twins 

Fans are speculating that Beyoncé's twin babies might be boys after the singer seemed to drop a subtle hint with her choice of outfit last week.

The 35-year-old rarely wears the same thing twice — after all, she has millions of dollars and access to all the top designers — but she did revisit a possibly meaningful piece of jewelry, which was captured in a series of photos posted on her website.

To attend her stepfather's 70th birthday, Queen Bey got dressed up in a little black dress and boots — and a pair of earrings she first wore in her music video for If I were a boy.

In the images, Beyoncé is wearing a short cut-out dress, matching knee-high boots, and a black choker. Her hair is pulled up, showing off a pair of silver earrings.

At least one eagle-eyed fan, who goes by @yawncey on Twitter, noticed that the star had worn those very earrings before.

'Beyoncé the type to subtly reveal the gender of her babies with earrings,' he wrote. 'Why else is Mrs. Petty rocking the "If I Were A Boy" earrings?'

He then offered a close-up of the the star's earrings in the music video, which do in fact bear the same zig-zag pattern set inside a hoop.

And it's true that Bey does, in fact, subtly hint at things for her fans. Before she announced her pregnancy on Instagram with a glamorous maternity shoot, telling the world that she and Jay Z were ready to see 'our family will be growing by two', she left hints that she was expecting twins on social media.

In a Christmas snap, she held up two fingers for the camera, which many believed was simply a peace sign.

Then again, she also flashed the same sign for the camera last summer, back before she could have known she was expecting twins (or perhaps even before she was pregnant).  

She also hinted about dropping her album Lemonade before it was actually released, sharing photos of herself with lemons.

In this case, many fans seem convinced that Queen Bey is sending a sign that Blue Ivy is getting two little brothers.

'Also she's been rocking emeralds, which is the birthstone for May! Possible due date!' wrote another fan. A third added: 'Sad but true, she is the master of cryptic codes and the true meaning behind them.'

At least one person, though, thinks Bey is just playing with her fans' heads: 'OR what if she knows everyone is on to her subliminal messages and now she's trying to throw us off.'

And this also isn't the first time fans have thought the star was revealing the babies' genders. When her announcement came out, some thought her mix of blue and pink underwear meant she was having one of each.
