Fans are getting a rare glimpse of Beyoncé’s twins after the Carter family touched down in South Africa some hours ago. Videos of their arrival can be found below.
As expected, the global superstar and her family were met by teeming fans that hollered and whistled as they passed by.
“We love you, Beyoncé!” the crowds screamed just as the singer and her first child, Blue Ivy, were spotted. Another video shows her husband, Jay Z, exiting the airport with a child in his arm.
Beyoncé’s twins, Rumi and Sir, were also along for the family trip, giving fans another opportunity to see the star’s daughter and son that are hardly ever in the media.
The “Lemonade” singer and her husband welcomed Rumi and Sir in June 2017, but it wasn’t until July this year that she finally showed their faces to the world.
"We spent many weeks in the NICU."
The Carters were on a family trip to Europe and Beyoncé shared a picture of herself relaxing with a twin on each lap. Rumi, the girl, looked more animated and was pointing at something afar off as she giggled. Sir, the boy, appeared to be calmer than his sister and just looked calmly toward the floor.
A month before the July episode, Queen Bey and Jay Z disappointed fans and concert-goers after sharing pictures of themselves holding a baby each at their recently concluded “On The Run II” tour.
The quick conclusion was that it was Rumi and Sir and members of the Beyhive immediately went into a meltdown on social media with tweets and Instagram posts. The singer’s reps, however, confirmed that the babies were not Rumi and Sir.
Two days after the disappointment, Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Lawson, shared an actual photo of the twins. Beyoncé followed suit with the more recent images from the Europe trip, so it seemed like a good consolation for disappointed fans.
The Carters don’t seem to mind Blue Ivy in the media; the six-year-old made headlines several times during their “On The Run II” tour. But it’s not the same with the twins, and that may be because Beyoncé had a difficult time delivering them.
In an interview for Vogue Magazine’s September issue, the 22-time Grammy winner revealed she had to have an emergency cesarean after doctors realized her health and that of the babies were at risk.
"We spent many weeks in the NICU," explained the “Flawless” singer, referring to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit where ill or premature newborn babies are taken care of.
We understand that Beyoncé likes to maintain her twins’ privacy, but we’ve got a feeling her fans will always look forward to and freak out over any pictures of Rumi and Sir.
