Amid speculation the twins have been born, Obama joked about the similarities between himself and Jay in the video, before implying that the musician was going to have ‘him beat’ when it comes to how many daughters they each have.

Since Obama has two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and Jay already has one, Blue Ivy with wife Beyonce, the comment implies that the only way the rapper could get him ‘beat’ is if he had twin girls.
