If you're wondering why your internet connection is slow today it's because the entire world is shook and grasping for some oxygen after Beyoncé introduced us all to her new twins who are a month old today.
Beyoncé unveiled the elaborate photograph, which shows her holding the twins in front of a floral arch in a very Renaissance Madonna and child style, on Instagram this morning, accompanying it with the caption "Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today" and a string of emojis to represent the now five-piece Knowles-Carter family.
Thus ends months of speculation about the names of the twins which were first made public after trademarks for them were made by the family last month.
And of course there's only one way that the internet could have reacted. With overkill, jokes and memes.
"Well, Beyonce, we could go for understated. Subtle. Reserved."
"I literally don't know what any of those words mean." https://t.co/VxW3oYmohJ

Beyonce and Jay, hedging their bets on the monarchy not being around in 50 years, decided to go ahead and knight their newborn. #SirCarter

How good is Beyonce though, she lets Jay-Z release his album and go through all the promo before properly announcing her BABIES.

Before y'all start trashing the names.
Sir means "Man of rank; Lord"
Rumi means "Beauty that flows."
You're welcome! #beyoncetwins
