As the rumors of Beyonce and Jay-Z's marital strife continue to be confirmed by lyrics on the entertainers' respective albums, other sources are coming forward to share what has really been going on behind the scenes in the power couple's relationship. "It is not a secret that Beyonce and Jay had huge problems a couple of years ago," an insider tells People. "It was obvious to everyone that spent time with them." But instead of calling it quits, Bey and Jay dealt with their marriage troubles by doubling down on their commitment to one another.

The fact that they were then parents of their eldest daughter, Blue Ivy, weighed heavily on their minds as they considered the fate of their relationship. "Even though they didn't get along great, they were together a lot because of Blue," the source explained to the mag. "There was always tension in the air, but they both worked very hard to get to the place where they are now."

It's unclear what kind of work the pair put in. Perhaps they went to therapy or found a different way to heal and move forward. Regardless, it's heartening to hear that they both wanted to get their relationship in better shape and managed to do that together.

No doubt that work they put in will come in handy as they embark on a whole new chapter as parents of newborn twins Rumi and Sir, as well as now 5-year-old Blue Ivy.   

"They are very excited about adding babies to the family," said the source regarding the twins, who were born on June 13. "Jay was great during Beyonce's pregnancy and continues to be great. He loves being a dad, and Beyonce seems very happy." Cheers to that!

That warm, upbeat energy between the longtime lovebirds will certainly have a positive effect on their LOs. Seems like Blue has picked up on it by being a bighearted older sister.

Beyonce's mom Tina Knowles Lawson adorably told Access Hollywood recently that her eldest grandchild "prayed for a brother and a sister, so, she takes full credit for having twins. She said it. She said, 'These are my babies.'"

So sweet! Wishing nothing but joy all around for the Carter crew!
