One month after Beyonce and Jay Z welcomed their newborn twins, the couple officially released their names and photo in a dreamy, flower-filled photo on Instagram that mirrored their record-setting pregnancy announcement. Beyonce, wrapped in a flowing purple garment and wearing a pale blue veil, cradles both twins on her chest while the caption reads simply, "Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today."

People confirms that, according to the twins' birth certificates, they were born on June 13 at 5:13 a.m. at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Both babies were delivered by Dr. Paul Crane, who also delivered Kim Kardashian's children, North and Saint West -- and Rumi is the older baby, born before Sir.

Grandmom Tina Knowles commented on the photo of her new grandchildren, writing, "So Happy my baby shared a photo of her baby with the world, proud grandma hello Sir Carter and Rumi Carter Boy and girl what a blessing." She also Instagrammed a series of quotes from the 13th century poet Rumi, causing fans to speculate that the famous writer was the inspiration for baby Rumi's name.

Though the Instagram photo was the first confirmed announcement of the twins names, TMZ reported that the couple, who have been trying to trademark the name Blue Ivy Carter since their first daughter was born in 2012, also filed similar papers securing the names Rumi Carter and Sir Carter in June.
