Although it appeared the twins Beyonce and Jay-Z were pictured with on the opening night of their On the Run II were their own, it now appears that, in fact, they were not.

When approached for a statement, Beyonce's representative wrote that the children in Bey and Jay's arms were not their twins. It's unclear whose kids they are—but we'll keep you updated as we find out more.


And just like that, Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé have hit the road for their On the Run II tour—and it looks like they've brought their twins Rumi and Sir along with them. Sort of.

Earlier today (June 6), Hov and the Queen Bey pulled up to the Cardiff, U.K.'s Principality Stadium for the first stop of their global trek. At some point during the performance, the two superstars showed images of themselves holding their two babies Rumi and Sir Carter, born last July, projected onto screens above the stage they were performing on.

In Jay's photo, which marks the first time he's been pictured with the twins, we can see the rapper rocking a simple dark tee and a cap. For her part, Bey rocks some extravagant braids. Both are standing with a lush, green jungle in the background. In between the images of the two entertainers, we see the words "Love Is Universal" projected upon a beige screen.

While Hov and Bey haven't exactly been secretive about the two latest additions to the growing Carter family, it still isn't all that often fans get a glimpse of Rumi and Sir. The next stop of Jay and Beyoncé's On The Run II Tour is in Glasgow, U.K. this Saturday (June 9).
