You may have wept over sweet baby Jesus this Sunday, but there have also been some tears shed over two other babies, Sir and Rumi Carter, twins of Jay-Z and Beyoncé, who were caught by paparazzi in Miami.

There have been no official photos of the twins since their mother posted one shortly after their birth five months ago.


The new photos making the rounds—one with a makeup-less Beyoncé holding Sir, and what looks to be Jay-Z’s mom, Gloria Carter, holding Rumi with a sweet white bow in her Afro—are making the collective net swoon and the Beyhive explode. Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Lawson, was also on hand in other photos.

Yet, knowing how serious the Carters are about their social media presence, and especially their fierce protection of their children, the images are slowly, surely, being scrubbed as they go up. Above are a few screenshots for posterity.


Anywho, apparently, London’s Daily Mail bought the photos from the paps and have the exclusive rights to them. See lots more here.

They sure are cute!
