Beyoncé's newborn twins, Sir and Rumi Carter, made their long-awaited Internet debut shortly after 1:00 a.m. on Friday in an Instagram post shared by the pop superstar one month after their birth.
The twins' first appearance came in typical "Queen Bey" fashion, -- a highly stylized photograph showing Beyoncé, swathed in a regal purple robe, cradling the two newborns in front of a canopy of flowers.
"Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today," the caption read.
The image was a direct call-back to her pregnancy announcement in a visually similar Instagram post in February, which has since racked up over 11 million likes.
Fans naturally fawned over the image, after waiting patiently for a glimpse of the Bey-bies who were born on June 14.
The post also officially confirms the names of the twins, which have been floating around in the media since June after Beyoncé and Jay-Z reportedly filed trademark documents to secure rights to the names "Rumi Carter" and "Sir Carter."
Often reserved, Beyoncé has openly spoken about the pain of a miscarriage before she gave birth to her now five-year-old daughter with Jay-Z, Blue Ivy, saying the heartbeat she had heard during her first pregnancy was "the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life.
