UPDATE: Beyoncé And Jay-Z Kick Off On The Run II Tour By Giving Us A Peek At Carter Twins
Is it April? Because we’ve been fooled, folks.
According to Buzzfeed News, after reaching out to a rep for Beyoncé and asking if the babies Bey and Jay are holding in images from the kickoff of the On the Run II Tour are indeed Rumi and Sir, they replied with, “It’s not.”
While cute, the mystery babies reportedly belong to someone else.
But the good news is, they were featured in some fashion, though briefly. Rumi and Sir are very visible in the end of what seems to be a clip of Bey and Jay renewing their vows with family, including Solange, present (see the 1:35 mark):
And since Rumi looks a lot like baby Beyoncé, we’re going to assume these aren’t stunt babies this time…
On June 6, the On the Run II Tour kicked off in Cardiff, Wales, Beyoncé’s first performance since snatching everyone bald at Coachella in April. But the real first that most people are excited about in reference to this tour are the images of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, who have been kept away from public view for some time.
The first time we were given a glimpse at the twins was when they were celebrating a month of life. Almost a year old now, they’re much bigger (and have the cutest rolls on them to prove it).
Rumi and Sir were born on June 13 in Los Angeles. Expect another good look at the two Carter kids when their birthday rolls around next week.
As for the second leg of the tour, it’s off to a flashy start:
The first On the Run tour was in September, way before the arrival of the twins and preceding the release of Lemonade and 4:44, albums which let us in on the famed couple’s marital ups and downs. Now that all has been forgiven and laid bare, what better way to let us know they’ve moved on than with another tour?
The Carters are starting their tour in Europe, but will begin in North America on July 25 in Cleveland, Ohio. They will conclude the much-anticipated follow-up tour on October 2 in Vancouver.
Expect an appearance from Blue Ivy at some point, as it certainly wouldn’t be a family affair with out our favorite scene-stealer and rule-keeper.
