Queen B ex­cites fans with pic­tures of her twins

CityPress - - News -

Bey­oncé al­most crashed the in­ter­net this week af­ter fi­nally re­leas­ing pic­tures of her month-old twins – the new­est ad­di­tions to the Carter fam­ily this week.

The 35-year-old pop star – who also has a daugh­ter, Blue Ivy (5), with rap­per Jay Z – shared the first of­fi­cial photo of her two new bun­dles of joy on In­sta­gram, much to the ex­cite­ment of her fans.

Along­side the pic­ture, which was taken in the gar­den of her R5.2 mil­lion-per-month Mal­ibu rental, she con­firmed the names of the boy and girl: “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month to­day (sic).”

She was dressed in a tiered kimono and pale blue veil. The dreamy robe comes cour­tesy of Palomo Spain’s Boy Walks in an Ex­otic For­est col­lec­tion and fea­tures a long train, ruf­fle de­tail­ing and ex­ag­ger­ated sleeves.

Bey­oncé was cradling Sir and Rumi Carter in a Bot­ti­celli-es­que im­age, com­plete with a flower arch, of course. The twins looked adorable while rest­ing com­fort­ably in their mother’s arms.

This is a photo that Queen B’s fans have been wait­ing for since June 18 when she wel­comed the twins into this world. It was very much in the style of her preg­nancy an­nounce­ment in Jan­uary, which broke the record for most likes on In­sta­gram.

The record-break­ing photo sees Bey­oncé hold­ing her baby bump, wear­ing just a bra, panties and a veil in front of a huge wreath of flow­ers.

The photo was ac­com­pa­nied by the words: “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,” sign­ing it, “The Carters”.

Bey­oncé and her 47-year-old hus­band are keep­ing the names Sir Carter and Rumi out of bounds and have re­port­edly filed trade­marks to pro­tect them.

Last month TMZ, a celebrity gossip site, re­ported the com­pany run by Bey­oncé and Jay Z (real name Shawn Corey Carter) filed le­gal doc­u­ments to se­cure the rights to the un­usual monikers.

While both names are dis­tinctly un­usual, Sir is the more un­com­mon of the two, with the name nor­mally used as a ti­tle be­fore a knighted man’s first name.

While Rumi is a Ja­panese name, it’s also the last name of the famed 13th-cen­tury Per­sian poet Jalalud­din Rumi, re­ported the UK’s Daily Mail. – Staff re­porter
