Born on 18th June this year, Beyonce’s twins were born early, like a lot of twins, and kept under wraps and in medical care for the first few days of their lives. Thankfully, Rumi and Sir Carter came out of the hospital healthy and happy, and there’s news that Beyonce might have already trademarked their names!
George and Amal Clooney
