Beyoncé Reveals First Photo of Sir and Rumi Carter

Saturday, 15 Jul, 2017

In honor of their one-month birthday, Beyoncé has shared the first photo of her and JAY-Z's son and daughter, Sir and Rumi Carter.

Shortly after the photo went live on her website, celebrities took to social media to share their excitement over the image. Zendaya wrote on Twitter that the image was "breathtaking", while Ariana Grande, Kim Kardashian, Lorde, Pharrell and Jessica Alba "liked" Beyonce's post. Beyoncé was unable to carry the twins to term so they were born prematurely, according to TMZ, which also reported they were "under the lights" and treated for jaundice due to "elevated bilirubin levels".

The new parents have reportedly already trademarked the new babies' names! Sir Carter and Rumi join 5-year-old big sister Blue Ivy. The superstar posted the first photo of Sir and Rumi Carter, and she added two of the same male-looking baby emoji at the bottom, which has fans wondering. She also wears an aqua blue veil, like ya do when you show off your babies for the first time to the universe.

The adorable twins are held by their glowing mother in the glamorous outdoor photo, which shares a similar style aesthetic with the record-breaking photo Beyoncé posted announcing she was pregnant.

"We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for all your well wishes", she added, signing with Jay Z. "She was expecting her babies [the premature birth of her twins, editor's note], she quickly regains her hair, her energy returns to normal and her body is magnificent, taking her time to regain her form and take advantage of her family". The caption on the photos is "I have three hearts". Currently, it stands at over a million "likes" with more than 1,148,882 thumbs ups.

Jay-Z and Beyonce previously battled rumors of marital issues, including allegations of an affair and an explosive elevator conflict between the 47-year-old hip-hop star and his sister-in-law, Solange Knowles.
