Beyoncé's newborn twins have been named
New trademark documents filed by Beyoncé and Jay Z's company reveal what could be the babies' names
[Updated 4 July 2017] Beyoncé has reportedly named her twins. Trademark documents filed by her company following their birth on 19 June suggest that the Carter twins are named Rumi and Sir, though it is not clear which has been given to which child, boy or girl.
The names have been trademarked for merchandise like baby teething rings, pushchairs, hair ribbons and rattles, in addition to tote bags, sports balls, key chains, cosmetics and fragrances. There has still been no official announcement from Beyoncé or Jay Z about their newborn babies.
Rumours spread on Saturday that Beyoncé had given birth to her twins. TMZ reported that the twins, whose genders have not yet been specified, were born on Monday in Los Angeles but they were still in the hospital due to a "minor issue" and doctors were not "comfortable releasing them."
Bey's father Matthew Knowles then took to Twitter to 'confirm' the news yesterday.
Matthew's message is the first from a family member about the twins. His tweet triggered the Beyhive who did not agree to Matthew making an announcement before Bey and Jay-Z did. It has been reported that Matthew and Bey do not have a very peaceful relationship (although he has strongly denied it). Fans also pointed out that the former Destiny's Child manager had hashtagged his daughter and son-in-law instead of mentioning them. He also included his Instagram handle at the bottom of the post.

The genders of the twins have not yet been announced, but observant fans pointed out that this bouquet, addressed to a "B & J" at a Los Angeles hospital, hint that the Carters had boy and a girl.
