JAY-Z Explains Why He And Beyonce Named Their Twins Sir And Rumi!
Power couple Beyonce and JAY-Z recently welcomed their pigeon pair twins into the world and after waiting a whole month for their name announcement we now know the reasons behind the name choice.
The 47-year-old rapper explained how their little ones’ names came to be during an interview with Elliot Wilson and Brian Miller for their podcast Rap Radar, which was released on Friday.
“Rumi is our favorite poet, so it was for our daughter,” JAY-Z shared. “Sir was like, man, come out the gate. He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z also have a daughter, 5 year old Blue Ivy, who features on the hip-hop mogul’s new track of his recent album. The youngster can be heard freestyle rapping on a song which no doubt makes her daddy very proud!
“I can’t even listen to that song no more,” JAY-Z said. “I only listen to her freestyle and then I’m like, ‘I can’t listen to this,'” adding that she had headphones on, climbed on a little stool and started rapping.
JAY-Z also spoke about his upcoming tour for the new album saying he held off from touring as much as he could so he could stay at home with his young family.
“I booked the tour for October so I could have at least four months to just really bond and see their fingers and sh*t like that,” he explained. “They’ll be with me on tour anyway but I’m just saying, like, I needed a space where I’m not doing anything. I’m just focused on them. I’m not thinking about a show at night or anything like that. That’s why the tour is so far away from the release of the album.”
Beyonce recently made headlines herself when a seemingly innocent photo she shared on Instagram (see above) drew criticism from mums around the world. Read more about that story here.
