The Beyhive is finally getting some answers! It’s been one month since Beyoncé — aka Mrs. Carter — welcomed twins with her husband JAY-Z. On Friday, Bey announced her newborns’ names — Rumi and Sir Carter — on Instagram, and now the “711” singer’s mother Tina Knowles is dropping a hint at what Rumi means!
Tina shared a text post featuring a few of the most popular quotes from Jalal al-Din Mohammed Rumi, a Persian poet and Islamic scholar from the 13th century. Many of the quotes that Tina posted had to do with love, and she praised them in her caption.
“It’s not only beautiful but logical,” the proud grandma wrote, and then she offered her own interpretation of their meaning. “Sometimes we are the reason we can’t find love!! We have to work on ourselves first to be whole.”
It looks like Tina is full of love, especially since her daughter just gave birth to her new grandbabies and they got through their minor health scare! Shortly after the 35-year-old singer welcomed her twins, reports claimed that the twins were born prematurely, causing them to endure a longer hospital stay than usual. But now, mommy and babies are doing just fine and the Carters are getting back to normal life.
“Beyoncé is recovering from the twins’ birth much quicker than she thought she would,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Considering how many difficulties she experienced during the pregnancy, she’s bouncing back really fast.”
Reports surfaced earlier in the year that the Grammy winner was experiencing a more difficult pregnancy than her first time around with her five-year-old daughter, Blue. Though she seldom shied away from sharing her glamorous maternity style on Instagram, Queen Bey was apparently dealing with more complications.
“[She’s having a] harder time this pregnancy with keeping up her energy,” a source previously told E! News. Of course, lower energy levels should come as no surprise — after all, she was carrying two babies all while trying to keep up with Blue! But now that the twins are here, reports are surfacing that the beauty is getting back to her old self.
“Beyoncé’s energy levels are already getting back to near normal, and her body is looking amazing. Bey hasn’t set herself any crazy timeframe to abide by, she’s just enjoying adjusting to the new family demands, and allowing herself to heal accordingly,” the source continues.
Other than welcoming home two new bundles of joy, the Carter family has even more to celebrate with the success of JAY-Z’s new album 4:44. Not only has the record been a total commercial success (and the subject of Internet fodder), but it also served as the 47-year-old rapper’s public apology to his wife for the alleged cheating hinted at on Beyoncé’s last album, Lemonade.
“You did what with who? What good is a ménage a trois when you have a soulmate, you risked that for Blue?” he raps. “I apologize, often womanize, took my child to be born, see through a woman’s eyes. Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles. Took me too long for this song. I don’t deserve you.”
