How cute! Our favorite power couple have named their new bundles of joy. A new report claims to know the names Beyonce, 35, and JAY-Z, 47, chose for their twins, and they are nothing short but sweet. The duo already named their first child, Blue Ivy… and frankly, no one saw that name coming, so it’s only normal for us to be expectant of the names they come up with this time around. Bey gave birth to a baby boy and a baby girl just last week, and Media Takeout claims that their newest additions’ names are… Shawn and Bea — after both their parents. JAY-Z’s real name is Shawn Carter, Shawn means “God is gracious,” And while the most popular version of the name is spelled “Sean,” this spelling variation rose to prominence in the 1970s, which is also right around the time Jay was born. Bea, on the other hand, means “she who brings happiness,” and it stems from the name Beatrice. However, these names have NOT been officially announced, But in due time, we’ll confirm how authentic the names are.
Just as a recap, when the couple announced Blue’s name back in 2012. Many speculated that “Ivy” represents the roman numeral IV, as four is a significant number for Beyonce and Jay. Since they were both born on the fourth, they were married on the fourth, and one of Bey’s albums is named Four. As for Blue, Beyonce hinted months later on her Tumblr page just why “Blue” is so meaningful. “The world is blue at its edges and in its depths, This blue is the light that got lost,” Bey wrote, quoting Rebecca Solnit‘s 2005 novel, A Field Guide to Getting Lost. Others said that the Carter’s first child was named Blue because that is Jay’s favorite color! Sometimes it really is as simple as that.
Some fans had speculated that Blue’s siblings would be named after other colours – or perhaps more unrealistically, other colour/plant combinations such as White Lilly or Purple Shrub. Sadly, the twins have not left the hospital since their arrival due to a minor health issue of being born premature. This could lead to the development of jaundice, a liver condition that causes yellowing of a newborn’s skin and eyes. It is not dangerous to babies but requires that they rest under lights. We sure can’t wait to see the kids! We hope they come out healthy soon.
