Beyoncé Celebrates Twins Rumi And Sir On Their Fourth Birthday

Check out some fun facts about Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s kids!

Beyoncé is celebrating her babies, twins Rumi and Sir, as they mark another trip around the sun. On Sunday, as the kids turned 4, Beyoncé wrote in a message on her personal website: “What’s better than 1 gift… 2.” “Happy birthday Rumi & Sir.”

The 28-time Grammy Award winner, 39, and her husband JAY-Z, 51, who also share daughter Blue Ivy, 9, welcomed daughter Rumi and son Sir on June 13, 2017. 


“Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter,” JAY-Z explained their names later that year. “Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir.”

Recently, in an interview, JAY-Z also reflected on his parenting philosophies and raising three kids with his megastar wife, Beyoncé.

“Feeling loved is the most important thing a child needs, you know?” JAY-Z said. “Not ‘Here’s this business that I’m going to hand over to you, that I’m creating for you.'”

“What if my child doesn’t want to be in music or sports?” he continued. “I have no idea, right? But as long as your child feels supported, and feels loved, I think anything is possible.” 

In addition, the proud dad said, “[The goal is to] just make sure we provide a loving environment, be very attentive to who they want to be. It’s easy for us, as human beings, to want our children to do certain things, but we have no idea. We’re just guides.” 

While the happy parents become 5 from 3, Beyoncé described the “extremely difficult pregnancy” with her twins in her 2019 Netflix documentary Homecoming. 

During her pregnancy with Rumi and Sir, Beyoncé developed preeclampsia. “My body went through more than I knew it could,” she said, noting that it took a physical toll on her as she returned to work.

Beyoncé and JAY- Z kids have their names trademarked

If Blue Ivy Carter, Rumi, and Sir decide to follow in their parents’ footsteps, they won’t have to worry about anyone using their names. 

Rumi and Sir have absolutely opposite personalities

In an interview, their grandmother Tina Lawson talking about their personalities in 2019 said: “The girl is just going to rule the world, and the boy is kind of laid back and chills like the dad.”

Rumi inspired Beyonce’s epic Coachella performance

Beyoncé became the first Black woman to headline Coachella, the music festival in Indio, California. She made history in 2018 by her performance for which the credit goes to Rumi. In her 2018 Vogue interview, she explained why. “One day I was randomly singing the black national anthem to Rumi while putting her to sleep. I started humming it to her every day,” said Beyonce.

“In the show at the time, I was working on a version of the anthem with these dark minor chords and stomps and belts and screams. After a few days of humming the anthem, I realized I had the melody wrong. I was singing the wrong anthem. One of the most rewarding parts of the show was making that change.”
