Formation hitmaker, Beyoncé took to Instagram to share a photo of her twins with the caption: “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today”, along with a string of emojis.

The singer and her rapper husband Jay Z were blessed with twins a month ago and fans have been eagerly waiting for a peek of the newborns.
