Singer Beyonce Knowles didn’t tell her father Mathew Knowles that she is pregnant with twins.

Beyonce revealed on Instagram on Wednesday that she and husband Jay Z are expecting twins. However, her father says the news came as a shock to him, reports etonline.com.

“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,” said Matthew, who teaches entertainment industry courses at Texas Southern University.

However, once he heard the news, Mathew quickly called his daughter and they had a “wonderful” chat.

“I was like ‘B,’ (and) she said, ‘Hi, Dad.’ I was like, ‘You’re okay?’ Because she sounded a little tired because she’s working on the Grammy performance.

“We just had a wonderful daughter-dad conversation. (But) I’m not gonna tell you all of that… Beyonce 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’,” he added.
