Update On Beyoncé & JAY-Z’s Twins — Details On The Health Issue They're Dealing With

| Filed under: Baby BlabberBeyonceJAY-ZHealthCeleb KidzPerezcious Parenting

Finally! An update!

This must be the "minor issue" connected to the birth of Beyoncé and JAY-Z's twins born last Monday…

According to TMZ's sources, the newest Carter additions were born premature (meaning Bey didn't go full term) and are in the hospital "under the lights."

While the insiders connected to the fam didn't elaborate further, it's not uncommon for premature newborns to have jaundice due to elevated bilirubin levels. The lights are meant to lower the levels.

Most of the time, jaundice isn't harmful, so we're really hoping that's the case for Bey's babies!

Fingers crossed the family can take them home soon!

Last week, U.S. student Otto Warmbier was medically evacuated from North Korean detainment, where he had been in a coma for over a year from serving hard labor.

Sadly, the 22-year-old passed away just a few days later while surrounded by family in Cincinnati.

Otto's parents Fred and Cindy Warmbier made the devastating announcement on Monday, saying the "awful torturous mistreatment" their son received while detained abroad "ensured that no other outcome was possible."

Last year, the University of Virginia student was found guilty of "subversion" for attempting to steal a political banner while staying in North Korea with a tour group. He was sentenced to 15-years of hard labor for the alleged anti-state acts.

Doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said Otto had extensive loss of brain tissue, and was in a state of unresponsive wakefulness.

While no doubt grieving the loss of their son, Otto's parents said they detected a positive change in his mostly non-responsive state over the past week, saying "he was at home and we believe he could sense that."

Our hearts go out to the Warmbier family.

We didn't think it was possible for the loss of Carrie Fisher to be any more tragic, but this news does hurt.

It seems the Star Wars heroine never slayed the demon of drug addiction; the latest toxicology report from the coroner reveals she had cocaine, opiates, methadone, and ethanol in her system at the time of her death.

The cocaine use was determined to take place "sometime approximately in the last 72 hours" of Carrie's life.

The cause of death was ultimately revealed on Friday to be sleep apnea. The Los Angeles County Coroner's Office noted both the drug use and Carrie's atherosclerotic heart disease as being possible contributing factors but could not say to what extent the substance abuse had an effect.

Ultimately the manner of death was ruled "undetermined."

We're sure Carrie's daughter Billie Lourd was hit hardest by the news. She released a statement to People, saying:
