TMZ reports that the babies were being held in the hospital for a “minor issue,” which the site now reveals to be their premature birth.

“Our sources say the babies are under the lights,’ wrote TMZ on Tuesday (Jun. 20). “[Sources] would not be more specific, but that often means the babies have jaundice because of elevated bilirubin levels. The lights are designed to lower bilirubin in the blood to eliminate the jaundice.”

Grandpa Mathew Knowles revealed that the twins were indeed born over the weekend with an Instagram post about them, one that Internet sleuths noticed that Tina Knowles-Lawson “liked” on the social media app.
