Mathew Knowles says that he didn’t know that his daughter Beyonce was pregnant let alone with twins, until the singer shut down the Internet on Wednesday with her baby bump photos.
According to Mathew who was overwhelmed by the development,
“I was shocked. Let me tell you what happened. I got a first text, and I was like, ‘Why is this person saying congratulations?’
“Then I get a second text from one of my students at Texas Southern, and I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ He was like, ‘Go to the web.’ I didn’t know myself.”
“I call her and I was like ‘B,’ [and] she said, ‘Hi, Dad.’ I was like, ‘You’re OK?’ Because she sounded a little tired because she’s working on the Grammy performance.
“Beyoncé and I had a great conversation. I’m looking forward to seeing her soon and I told her, ‘Look, slow down a little bit. You need to slow down a little bit.’ ”
