We just found out why Beyonce & Jay Z named their kids Rumi & Sir

There were heaps of rumours going around about what Jay Z and Beyonce were going to name their twins before they were born. So heaps of people were shocked when they announced their new babies were called Rumi and Sir Carter.

In an interview with Rap Radar, Jay explained the name choices of their twins. 

Rumi,” Jay explained, “Is our favourite poet, so it was for our daughter.”

When it came to Sir’s name, Jay explained that the name made sense given his demeanour when he was born. 

“Sir was like, man, come out the gate.

“He carries himself like that. He came out, like, Sir.”


Jay also revealed in his interview that he will be taking the whole family on the road for his new tour 4:44

He said he chose the dates so that he would be able to spend time with their newborns before hitting the road. 

Jay explained, “I booked the tour for October so I could have at least four month to just really bond and see their fingers and sh*t like that.

"They’ll be with me [on tour] anyway but I’m just saying, like, [I needed] a space where I’m not doing anything. I’m just focused on them. I’m not thinking about a show at night or anything like that. That’s why the tour is so far away from the release of the album.”

<3 this family!
