The Beyhive, MFM HQ and the rest of the world waited with bated breath to find out: what will Beyonce name her twins?


And now it's finally been confirmed by Queen B herself that her now 1-month-old twins are called Rumi and Sir Carter ?

Rumours first began to swirl that these were the names when Beyonce and hubby Jay Z allegedly filed legal papers to trademark Rumi Carter and Sir Carter (for a girl and a boy respectively).

TMZ wrote that the papers were filed from a company owned by the couple, which had previously applied for the trademark on daughter Blue Ivy's name.

It also reports that the trademark would cover all kinds of products, from pushchairs to make-up lines...

Previously, Media Take Out reported that a source, who claimed to be close to the stars, 'revealed' the names to be Shawn Jr and Bea Carter.

The site claimed that little Shawn Jr was named after his dad (whose non-celeb name is Shawn Carter), and that the girl baby Bea was named after both parents.

Hollywood Life then picked up the story.

When we picked up the story, we admitted we weren't 100% sure how reliable this information was (as Media Take Out has previously butted heads with Beyonce’s rep over false pregnancy lip injection rumours).
