Beyoncé’s Twins Rumi and Sir Make Their Instagram Debut

Brace yourself, Internet: Beyoncé has shared the first photo of her 1-month-old twins in an Instagram post that also confirms their names: Rumi and Sir. A seperate post from Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles seems to clarify that Rumi is a girl and Sir is a boy. Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z had filed trademarks for the names “Rumi Carter” and “Sir Carter” in late June, approximately two weeks after the children were born. Beyoncé and Jay-Z also have a 5-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.

In the first public photo of the twins, Bey holds both of them while wearing a ruffled, floral gown and blue veil in front of a flowered arch, a pose reminiscent of Beyonce’s nature-inspired maternity photo shoot back in February. Her photo announcing her pregnancy, below, broke the record for most-liked Instagram post of all time and currently has more than 11 million likes. The twins’ Instagram debut has already been liked more than 6.5 million times within eight hours of being posted.
