The meaning behind Beyonce’s twins’ names is FINALLY revealed
bundles of joy
If there's one family in the world who can break the internet twice in one week, it's the Carters.
When Beyoncé posted the first photo of her newborn twins - Sir and Rumi Carter - on Friday, the world went into a frenzy.
Every pop culture buff worth their weight had one question on their lips, ‘what do you think of the names?'
Now Beyoncé's mother, Tina Knowles, has come to the party with more precious morsels of info about the most famous infants on earth.
On Saturday, Tina posted a picture of poetry by the 13th century Persian poet Rumi, with the proud grandma explaining in the caption that her second granddaughter's gender-neutral name isn't 'only beautiful but logical'.
'Love number three. Sometimes we are the reason we can't find love!! We have to work on ourselves first to be whole,' she added.
It's not the first time Queen Bey has shown her love of literary artists, having famously sampled Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi's TED talk 'We Should All Be Feminists' in her 2013 song, 'Flawless'.
She collaborated with British poet Warsan Shire on Lemonade. Shire also wrote the poem captioned in Beyoncé's pregnancy announcement back in February - 'I have three hearts' - which was posted on the star's website along with an underwater photoshoot.
With regards to Jay-Z and Beyoncé's baby boy's name, Professor Richard Coates, a professor in linguistics from the University of the West of England has revealed the name is a sign of nobility and power.
'Sir is a word introduced as a title of honour by the Norman rulers in the 11th or 12th century. It originally just meant 'Lord'-not royal, just aristocratic or a sign of the King's favour,' he told HarpersBAZAAR.
Sir's name follows in the same vein of his fellow A-list offspring, such as Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West's son Saint and Tyga and Blac Chyna's son King.
