While the New York Times keeps its snooty ostrich head in the sand, waiting until the twins (pictured above, performing with Beyoncé at the 2017 Grammys) have graduated college before they report this, E! is spilling all the honey from the Beyhive. Sit down, everybody, because we have the next steps of royal succession!
Girls do run the world in the Carter household, because Rumi Carter is next in line after Blue Ivy. The newest girl Beyoffspring was the first of the twins to do that annoying “Single Ladies” shimmy out of ‘Yonce. Rumi popped out at 5:13AM on June 13 and her bother Sir arrived a minute later.
Because they couldn’t figure out what albums to plug into the kids’ names this go-round (Lemonade Magna Carta seems ostentatious, even for Jay and Bey standards), the new duo isn’t getting middle names (“Nyah nyah! Mom and Dad love you less!” –Blue Ivy in three years). Don’t fret, Sir and Rumi! There are two of you, and one of her. Just ask Mom about Auntie Michelle, and we’ll see who gets the last laugh.
