Diddy might have out-earned Beyonce this year as the world’s highest-paid celebrity, according to Forbes, but that’s OK, because she and hubby Jay Z are number one when it comes to being the highest-paid celebrity couple.

Bey and Jay are the only married couple on the publication’s annual Celebrity 100 list.  

Their combined earnings of $147 million within the past 12 months come from a number of sources.  

Beyoncé’s pre-tax income of $105 million comes from her endorsement deals and her 2016 Formation World Tour, while Jay Z’s earnings of $42 million were mostly from his companies, including Roc Nation, Armand de Brignac champagne and Tidal.  

He’s expected to earn more in the future, though, thanks to a new $200 million touring deal he just made with concert promoter Live Nation.

The couple is currently expecting twins, but the due date is still currently unknown.  

As previously reported, Bey’s father Mathew Knowles stated late last month that they would arrive “more than two weeks from now.”
