UPDATE: After this article was published, when asked if the babies Beyoncé is holding in the On the Run II tour intro video are her twins Sir and Rumi, a rep for the singer told BuzzFeed, “It's not.” We'll update this article as more information becomes available.
Since the birth their twins Sir and Rumi last June, Beyoncé and JAY-Z have managed to keep the children largely out the public eye. As the pair kicked f their anticipated On the Run II tour in Cardiff, Wales, on Wednesday (June 6), the top-secret twins appeared to make a cameo in the show’s video intro — just ahead their first birthday.
Beyoncé famously shared a photo herself holding Sir and Rumi following their birth, but she shied away from showing their faces. In a still captured from the OTR II performance by Billboard senior editor Hilary Hughes, the mom three once again poses regally holding two babies, but it turns out they are not the babies. The “family” portrait is juxtaposed with the words “Love Is Universal” displayed on another screen.
See the moment below, and stay tuned for Billboard's full coverage from the On the Run II Tour kick-f.
