As if the world isn’t still reeling from news that Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s twins are finally among us, the names and genders of the newborns have reportedly been announced and the BeyHive cannot deal!
According to US Weekly, the twins, one girl and one boy, have been named Rumi and Sir Carter and were born on June 12th. While Bey and Hov have yet to officially confirm the news, news of the #CarterTwins names came after trademark documents filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office were obtained by People.
Some fans were ecstatic about news of the twins’ reported names. A few google searches helped uncover various meanings of the names and the BeyHive were thrilled.
