#BeyonceTwins: Bey breaks Instagram with first picture of Sir and Rumi

Beyonce might’ve been in the news recently courtesy of her husband’s new album, but the singer-songwriter-mega social media star today unveiled her one-month-old twins to the world.

And yes, they are utterly adorable.

The post hit the social network around 5am Friday in South Africa, and subsequently garnered 3.1-million likes, with 137 000 comments to boot.

It’s on its way to becoming the most-liked post on the network ever, a title held by Beyonce’s pregnancy reveal posted in February 2017.

“Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today,” reads the post.

Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. 🙏🏽❤️👨🏽👩🏽👧🏽👶🏾👶🏾

Transcending the beautiful world of Instagram, the news also gave the usually-depressing Twitter something to smile about. The hashtag #beyoncetwins began trending in South Africa early Friday.

People just couldn’t deal.

Blessed or not, not everyone was boarding the hype train.

As for those names: yes, Beyonce and Jay Z did in fact name their children Sir and Rumi. A few on Twitter couldn’t get their head around the names, or at least how Beyonce phrased the post.

But there’s a good reason why the two superstars chose the names, according to an informed Twitter user.
