Just because Beyonce has revealed the names of her twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, early this morning doesn’t mean she is done dangling Swarovski –encrusted carrots in our faces.
We still don’t know the sex of the babies.
Now when TMZ revealed earlier this month that Beyonce’s trademark holding company BGK Trademark Holdings (Beyonce Gisele Knowles) sought to claim Rumi and Sir Carter, TMZ also assumed then the babies were a girl and boy.
Perhaps they jumped the shark and we all joined in! Hmmmm. * side eye emoji *
The name Rumi appears to be homage to a 13th century Persian poet by that name — and Sir happens to be referenced in one of his most famous poems:
“Bring the pure wine of
love and freedom.
But sir, a tornado is coming.
More wine, we’ll teach this storm
A thing or two about whirling.”
Sir is a very masculine name as knighted men are called Sir and as we know in formal chatter men are called sir and women are called madame.
The trademarks are for fragrances, cosmetics, key chains, baby teething rings, strollers, mugs, water bottles, hair ribbons, playing cards, tote bags, sports balls, rattles and novelty items.
Hair ribbons?! Girl no?!
Thus Boy & Girl. Right!?
It is still not clear and apparently, people are fighting about it in social media.
A friend of mine and I had a lengthy convo this morning about this very subject when she asked me to confirm the sex of the babies.
She pointed out the fact that it looks like the emoji’s on her caption are two boys.
But the baby emoji is gender neutral.
And she pointed out that Bey is wearing a purple and blue robe and purple is a color often associated with girls as well, so there is that also.
And I learn from the Internet that the clothing is from a Spanish designer Paloma Spain who is known for androgynous clothing
Is this an ode to the late great Prince or something?
Long story short, no, Bey is not done messing with us.
I agree with Sarran at this point:
And here, take my hashtags to commemorate and celebrate this moment. Feel free to grab any to accompany your photos sharing the occasion today.
