People Are Really Confused Over Beyoncé’s Twins’ Names
Today was the day so many Beyoncé fans have been waiting for: Mama Bey herself introduced her twins to the world, not only sharing a gorgeous new pic (which is a stunning mirror-image of her internet-breaking baby bump pic), but also confirming the names of her two little bundles of joy. However, in doing so, she sparked some serious confusion.
The two newest members of Beyoncé’s family have monikers that are just as unique as anyone would have expected (their big sister *is* named Blue after all). However, the way in which Bey decided to write the twin’s names in her caption — “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. 🙏🏽❤️👨🏽👩🏽👧🏽👶🏾👶🏾” — has left plenty of people scratching their heads and asking for a little clarification.
Hi does anyone know if it's Sir Carter Carter or Sir Carter Knowles-Carter or Sir Carter Carter-Knowles?

Some folks are wondering if this means that Sir’s name is actually a heck of a lot more *extra* than expected…
Does it mean that lil Sir Carters full name is Sir Carter Carter? 🤔🤔 #beyoncetwins

While others feel there’s a reason she wrote it the way she did…
LISTEN Y'ALL, SHE SPECIFICALLY PUT SIR CARTER AND RUMI, NOT SIR AND RUMI CARTER. WE WILL REFER TO KING #1 BY HIS COMPLETE NAME, SIR CARTER pic.twitter.com/37bgVVzHWI

And a few are wondering about little Rumi…
So will it be Sir Carter and Rumi Knowles?? Does Rumi not get a last name? Who knows! #beyoncetwins

Thankfully, Bey’s mom, Tina Lawson, has an answer to that last question.
Sharing Bey’s stunning pic with her own followers, she added the caption, “So Happy my baby shared a photo of her babies with the world ❤️❤️❤️proud grandma hello Sir Carter and Rumi Carter❤️🙏🏾❤️ 7/13/2017 Boy and girl what a blessing ❤️.”
There we go: Sir Carter and Rumi Carter. Welcome to the world, little Carters!
What do you think about the names Sir and Rumi? Let us know @BritandCo!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
