Prepare for at least another 26 hours of rolling power cuts, South Africa. Stage 2 load shedding will continue until 11pm on Monday, Eskom…
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.
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.
Beyoncé wrote “Sir Carter and Rumi” not “Sir and Rumi Carter” so is Rumi not a Carter or is Sir Carter Sir Carter Carter? pic.twitter.com/UTOvLLupP4

But there’s a good reason why the two superstars chose the names, according to an informed Twitter user.
Before y’all start trashing the names.
Sir means “Man of rank; Lord”
Rumi means “Beauty that flows.”
You’re welcome! #beyoncetwins
