Ever since Beyonce gave birth to twins back in June, she and Jay-Z have been very careful about keeping Sir and Rumi out of the public eye. With an exception.
Some would say that they’re being too careful or even selfish; others applaud them for looking after the privacy of their babies instead of showing them off.
Well … it looks like Beyonce and Jay-Z let down their guard. Because the world is getting its first glimpse of the twins, and this was clearly not planned.
Obviously, we’ve seen Sir and Rumi.
Beyonce shared a photo of the twins and of herself.
Just as in her pregnancy photo, she looked radiant and magical and like she belonged in a Renaissance painting (Italian, not Northern).
Or at the very least in a much more contemporary fairy painting.
We know that the twins are alive and well, though they spent extra time in the hospital due to a health issue.
We know that their names are Sir and Rumi, and we know what their names mean.
(Sir is named for his perceived assertiveness upon his birth, while Rumi is named after Beyonce and Jay-Z’s favorite poet)
But, aside fromt hat one (glorious) picture, the twins have been out of sight, if not out of mind.
Along with their big sister Blue Ivy, Sir and Rumi are a blessing in Beyonce and Jay-Z’s lives.
But we know that things have been less than perfect for this epic power couple.
In her epic Lemonade album with the music video journey that captivated the world, Beyonce revealed that Jay-Z had done the unthinkable:
He had cheated on her.
But it wasn’t until Jay-Z’s 4:44 album came out that the world really came to understand the full extent of Jay-Z’s infidelity.
This was so much more than just Becky With The Good Hair, folks.
Though his tone and lyrics seemed deeply remorseful, Jay-Z seemed to almost humble-brag about almost losing his family because of a threesome.
Threesomes are considered unusual in some communities and common in others, but most people don’t bring them up unless they want people to know that they’ve participated.
Jay-Z’s lyrics referred to specifics about how he and his wandering penis had directly impacted his and Beyonce’s efforts to grow their family.
Within the tracks of 4:44, Jay-Z lamented his cheating and the distress that it had caused Beyonce.
Not only for its own sake, but because of the very physical toll that the anguish had taken on Beyonce.
We’re talking about miscarriages, folks.
We’re not Beyonce’s doctor and we’re woefully unqualified (not being doctors and also not being experts in the particular medical needs of demigods), so we can’t speak to the actual degree to which Jay-Z’s cheating contributed to Beyonce’s failed pregnancies.
But it’s clear that the couple believes that it had a role.
But now, things are so much marriage. Not only between Beyonce and Jay-Z, but for their whole family.
Sir and Rumi are in their lives and in Blue Ivy’s life. And now the world has gotten a little sneak peek, as you can see in the video below.
The 5-month-old twins got some time outside at Beyonce and Jay-Z’s mansion in Miami, Florida.
You can see Beyonce holding Sir while Beyonce’s mother, Tina Knowles, cradles Rumi.
Look at their chubby little cheeks! These babies are too precious for this world!
