Awkward. According to a new report, Beyoncé's dad, Mathew Knowles, allegedly found out about his daughter's second pregnancy through a text message from a friend!
After the superstar announced that she was expecting twins on Feb. 1, Mathew reportedly received a congratulatory text, alerting him to the news. "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," the talent manager allegedly told IB Times, according to The Shade Room.

Beyoncé and her father have had a publicly rocky relationship. The 35-year-old struggled with his infidelity throughout her parents' marriage, which ultimately led to their divorce in 2011. She severed all professional ties with him later that same year.

She said of the decision, "It took a while for me and my dad to have an understanding. When I turned 18 and started handling my business more, he went into shock. And we had our issues. I'd say no to something, and he'd book it anyway," she recalled. "Then I'd have to do it because I'd look bad [if I didn't]. We would fight sometimes, and it took about two years, to when I was 20, for him to realize, 'Oh, she is an adult now, and if she doesn't wanna do something, I can't make her do it.'"
Although Mathew didn't get a head's up about Bey's pregnancy, he did post a sweet pic of himself with the singer and granddaughter Blue Ivy in response to the announcement.
