The general public have only really been given one formal portrait of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s almost one-year-old twins Rumi and Sir, which means the Beyhive was no doubt hungry for a new one. Thirsty fans were finally rewarded yesterday during Bey and Jay’s first stop on their On The Run II Tour in Cardiff, England. Projected on a giant screen about three minutes into an intro video were the images of Beyoncé and Jay-Z both holding a set of year-old twins. The implication was that the audience was looking at the latest pics of Rumi and Sir. As it turns out, the twins were decoys.
Beginning at the 2:57 mark, you can hear the screams of the audience when the image of Bey and Jay. That’s some “Santa just walked into the mall” level of hysteria.
A source confirmed to People to that the babies aren’t Rumi and Sir.
“At the end of the show the Carter babies were included in a family collage [however] the babies in the film clip at the beginning were not their children.”
However, Bey and Jay’s alleged twins made a second appearance in another concert video, and MSN says it’s not clear whether those are fake babies as well.
It’s not that weird that Beyoncé and Jay-Z would pose with decoy children. What’s the point of being an ultra-famous and rich baby if you can’t hire a stand-in to fulfill your boring family obligations? Those babies have better things to do, like blow spit bubbles on their tummy time mat while their net worth increases.
