We finally know what inspired JAY-Z and Beyoncé in naming their newborn twins.

The rap star told Rap Radar in a podcast released Friday the couple’s new baby girl was named after the 13th Century poet, Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi.

"Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter," JAY-Z said, confirming what many have speculated since the twins' names were first announced in June.

But the process for their son's name, Sir, was a little more organic.

"Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that," JAY-Z, 47, said. "He just came out like, Sir."

The Tidal music streaming service owner also revealed to Rap Radar how his and Bey's first daughter, Blue Ivy, 5, rapped on his "4:44" album, saying she climbed up onto a stool and started stringing together a rhyme.

“She got the headphones and she climbed on the little stool, and then she just started rapping,” he said. "I was like, 'Oh, s--t.' I have (her freestyle) on my phone. Five minutes! Five minutes of her doing that."

Beyonce updated her website and Instagram with new personal photos.

Beyonce shared personal photos from the FYF Fest in Los Angeles.

Two new private videos featuring Beyonce have been leaked onto the Internet. The first one was recorded with Michelle Obama, Solange and Julez during Bey's last year's birthday party. The second shows Blue Ivy dancing for her mom.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z‘s twins were delivered by the same doctor who helped Kim Kardashian West and her sister Kourtney Kardashian give birth, according to Sir and Rumi Carter‘s birth certificates.

The certificates – obtained by PEOPLE — reveal that the Carter twins arrived on Tuesday, June 13, at 5:13 a.m. at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Rumi arrived first, followed by brother Sir, according to the doctors, and both were delivered by OB/GYN Dr. Paul Crane.

The wait is over for Beyoncé’s fans.

Sir and Rumi, her twins with husband Jay-Z, were born in June. For the past month, the world has anxiously awaited a first glimpse of the babies.

Early Friday morning, Beyoncé finally graced them with a photo, posted to her Instagram account. It shows her holding the twins along with the caption, “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today.”

Last month, Jay Z publicly responded to Beyoncé’s soul-baring Lemonade album with a soul-baring record of his own: 4:44. On the title track, Jay Z apologized to his wife for cheating on her. And on Monday, Jay Z released a “footnotes” video for the title song (via Tidal), during which he and several celebrity friends like Kendrick Lamar, Will Smith, and Chris Rock discuss the themes of the track. In doing so, Jay Z finds himself offering more personal details about what went wrong in his marriage.

“This is my real life,” Jay Z says, before addressing the problems that arose in his marriage. “I just ran into this place and we built this big, beautiful mansion of a relationship that wasn’t totally built on the 100 percent truth and it starts cracking. Things start happening that the public can see. Then we had to get to a point of ‘OK, tear this down and let’s start from the beginning.’ It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.”

Towards the end of the video, Jay Z remembers a time when he actually begged Beyoncé to stay with him on vacation, rather than leave, as she had previously planned.

“I was on a boat, and I had the best time,” Jay Z recalls. “I was like, ‘Man, this is great.’ Then she had to leave. . .I was, like, crushed: ‘Man, I don’t even feel like this. What is happening to my body right now? I don’t even feel like this. Did I just say. . . ‘Don’t leave’?”

In another clip from the track’s “footnotes,” Jay Z admits that he played 4:44 for Beyoncé pretty early in the recording process. And yes, that was awkward.

“We just got to a place where in order for this to work, this can’t be fake,” Jay Z explains. “Not one ounce. I’m not saying it wasn’t uncomfortable because obviously it was.”
For those of you who couldn’t get enough of Jay-Z’s 13th studio album, 4:44, good news: A physical edition of the album, out on Friday, features three bonus songs — “Blue’s Freestyle / We Family,” “MaNyfaCedGod,” and “Adnis,” all of which could be heard in the visual teasers of the album.

“Blue’s Freestyle / We Family” has a very accurate title: Not only does Blue rap on the track, but it’s also downright adorable and very, very catchy, even though her verses aren’t the easiest to understand, as Twitter has been quick to point out. Basically, 2017’s new catchphrase will probably be “boom shakalaka,” and it’s all thanks to Blue.

“MaNyfaCedGod” features James Blake and deals with Beyoncé’s forgiveness, her and Jay-Z’s reconciliation, and their On the Run Tour. The song also references a quote by Rumi, further solidifying the rumor that Hov and Beyoncé’s twins are named Rumi and Sir.

Have Beyoncé and husband JAY-Z settled on names for their new additions?

The couple’s twins, reportedly a daughter and a son, may be named Rumi and Sir Carter, according to trademark documents filed to the United States Patent and Trademark Office on Monday and obtained by PEOPLE.

Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s company has filed papers to trademark the apparent monikers for everything from fragrances and cosmetics to baby gear, tote bags and water bottles.

The name Rumi appears to be an homage to a 13th century Persian poet by that name -- and Sir happens to be referenced in one of his most famous poems:

“Bring the pure wine of
love and freedom.
But sir, a tornado is coming.
More wine, we'll teach this storm
A thing or two about whirling.”
With Jay-Z aging gracefully on his newest album, 4:44, listeners might’ve been surprised (or not) to learn that the rapper directly addressed Beyoncé’s Lemonade numerous times, confirming that he was, indeed, up to some lying and philandering while married to Bey. What’s perhaps more surprising then is that Beyoncé was heavily involved in crafting 4:44 as we know it, as revealed in a new interview with No I.D., the album’s producer. “I always call Bey our de facto A&R. Pillow talk is the strongest conversation on the planet,” he explained to the New York Times. “Every song has to get past her ears, in my eyes. She came by a lot and played a good part in helping us get over hurdles on certain records. Of course she’s genius-level with that.”

Although Jay-Z didn’t want 4:44 to solely serve as a “response” to Lemonade, No I.D. indirectly encouraged him to reference it at least once. As we know now, Jay-Z ended up referencing it quite a bit, most notably with 4:44’s title track. “We just wanted him to respond and then let it be and still touch on other things. I created that beat to box him into telling that story,” the producer explained. “We never directly spoke about that album. Mainly because if he talks about himself, it’s going to bleed into that regardless. But there’s a difference in talking about it for the sake of response and for the sake of honesty and the truth. The truth needs to explain why you are the way you are, why you did what you did. We know what happened. We got it.” And the rest is Tidal history.
JAY-Z has used tracks on his new album to make a public apology to Beyonce for his past indiscretions.

4:44 was released exclusively to Tidal on 30 June, and fans were quick to notice how many of the lines seem to respond directly to those of Beyonce's album Lemonade.

The two artists have been married for almost 10 years, but their relationship was the subject of worldwide speculation after lyrics in Lemonade appeared to accuse JAY-Z of being unfaithful.

Many fans expected JAY-Z to respond on 4:44, and it seems they will not be disappointed.

For instance, on Beyonce's track 'Hold Up' she says: "Never had the baddest woman in the game up in your sheets."

On JAY-Z's track "Kill Jay Z" he responds with the self-critical: “You almost went Eric Benét / Let the baddest girl in the world get away."

On Beyonce's track “Pray You Catch Me" she sings: “You can taste the dishonesty / It’s all over your breath as you pass it off so cavalier."

On “Kill JAY-Z” he appears to reference an infamous altercation in a lift with Beyonce's sister Solange after the 2014 Met Gala: "You egged Solange on/Knowin’ all along, all you had to say you was wrong." Read more...
You can rest easy...Beyoncé and Jay-Z's twins have left the hospital and are finally at home, multiple sources confirm to E! News.

After remaining in the hospital for an extended period of time, a source said that Bey and the babies have left the hospital and are "doing great."

Another source confirmed to E! News that the babies looked healthy and are at home. According to the insider, Beyoncé also "looked amazing and was glowing." The mother of three also had a very mellow mood and was calm.

As The Daily Mail exclusively reported, the new mother of three has since set up house at a $400,000-a-month Malibu mansion, where she and her family are expected to stay for the remainder of the summer.

The property, which features 6.3 acre grounds, features a rose garden, tennis court, pool house and viewing deck. The property, which is referred to as La Villa Contenta, is currently on the market for $54.5 million. According to The Daily Mail, Tina Knowles was spotted visiting the compound on Sunday.
It's been more than a week since the Knowles-Carter twins arrived, but according to several sources, Beyoncé and the twins are still in a Los Angeles, California hospital. According to TMZ, Beyoncé's twins were reported born prematurely and were kept "under the lights." The "lights," the unnamed source told TMZ, refer to phototherapy to treat newborn jaundice, a common condition in premature babies. The condition also affects full term babies, and is rarely serious.

When preemies develop jaundice, it's due to elevated bilirubin levels in their blood. As a result, jaundiced babies' skin and the whites of their eyes appear yellow or orange. These visible signs of jaundice take anywhere from three to five days after birth to appear and are temporary, with skin color returning to normal once the bilirubin levels stabilize. To accelerate this process, babies are put under bright blue lights to help break down the bilirubin. They even get tiny little shaded goggles to wear to protect their eyes, not unlike the kind you'd see at a tanning salon.

Jaundice could certainly account for the "minor issue" with Beyoncé's twins that have kept them in the hospital since their birth on June 12. While the couple themselves have yet to confirm the twins' birth, Beyoncé's dad, Matthew Knowles, confirmed the twins' arrival via Instagram on Sunday.
Beyoncé Knowles and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter have welcomed twins in one of the most highly anticipated celebrity births, according to multiple reports Sunday.

One of those reports was granddad himself, Matthew Knowles, who blasted the news on Twitter with a Father's Day post reading “They’re here!” and “Happy Birthday to the twins!"

And sources told E! News that Beyoncé had given birth to twins in Los Angeles. On Thursday, Jay Z and Blue Ivy were together spotted at a Los Angeles area hospital. While the twins' genders have yet to be revealed, on Friday, an unidentified woman carrying a bouquet of pink, purple and blue flowers with two giant baby foot-shaped pink and blue balloons that read, "Baby Girl" and "Baby Boy, was photographed dropping off the gift at the same Los Angeles hospital that Bey's husband and 5-year-old daughter were seen at the day prior. Upon inspection, the card attached to the flowers had a visible "B+J" written on the floral envelope.

TMZ also reported that the twins had arrived, but an issue surfaced that has kept them in the hospital for nearly a week. Sources connected with the family told TMZ the twins were born Monday in a Los Angeles hospital. Reportedly, a "minor issue" surfaced, and as a result doctors do not feel comfortable releasing them. One source told TMZ Beyonce also remains at the hospital, but as far as they know she's okay. The babies are expected to be okay as well. It's unclear when everyone will be released.

The platinum couple, who recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary has yet to officially comment.
