Beyonce shares the first photo of her twins—with names!
Posted July 14
Forgive the Beyhive if they are tired on Friday.
Shortly after 1 a.m., Beyoncé debuted the long awaited photo of her newborn twins on her official Instagram account.
Naturally it was glorious.
The photo was just what we have come to expect from the superstar.
It featured Queen Bey cradling her babies while swathed in fabric including a blue veil. She is posed before a stand of flowers with the ocean in the background.
The image is similar to ones she posted to announce her pregnancy in February.
“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters,” her now-famous Instagram post read back in February.
Fans have been waiting with bated breath for a glimpse of the latest production by Beyoncé and Jay-Z.
Needless to say the twins’ debut was met with rapturous glee.
“Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today,” the caption read today.
There was a hint that we might be seeing more of Beyoncé.
Entertainment Tonight reported that fans spotted her out to dinner with her hubby in Malibu, California. It was the first public sighting since she gave birth.
The Instagram post also served as the official confirmation of the babies names. In June , Beyoncé and Jay-Z reportedly filed trademark documents to secure rights to the names “Rumi Carter” and “Sir Carter.”
The superstar singer and her mogul husband, who married in 2008, are also parents to a five-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
While it was not confirmed by Jay Z and Beyonce’s camp, it was reported that the twins had to stay in the hospital for a period after their birth for a “minor issue” that some speculated to be jaundice.
It’s not uncommon for twins to be born prematurely and to require a hospital stay after birth. In any case, it looks like little Rumi and Sir are home now, and doing well.
Photos from Beyonce and Jay Z’s couples baby shower made rounds back in May.
Beyoncé shared images of her henna decorated belly, along with photos of her and the hubs decked out in African attire.
The push party was, naturally, a star-studded event. Guests included Kelly Rowland, sister Solange and expectant tennis phenom Serena Williams.
Queen mom Tina Knowles shared some video and pictures from the party, as well.
Congratulations to the Carters!
