Award winning Singer and business woman, Beyoncé ‘Queen B’ Knowles has announced the arrival of twins, son Sir Carter and daughter Rumi, on social media with a suitably dramatic photo to celebrate their one-month birthdays.
The post on Instagram confirms Beyoncé and rapper husband Jay-Z welcomed the latest additions into the world one month ago, the happy event miraculously flying under the media’s radar.
The songstress captioned the photo: “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today,” with accompanying emojis representing the growing family of five.
The image is strikingly similar to the photo Beyonce shared to announce her pregnancy in February. In the latest post, liked by more than 11 million followers, the singer preemptively thanked fans for their well wishes.
“We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes,” she wrote.
Beyonce and Jay Z are already parents to five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.
If the Met Gala is known for one thing, it’s for breaking barriers and pushing red carpet standards to the another level. Some celebrities wowed us last night, while some just straight up shocked everyone. Read the recap below.
1. Cara Delevingne Painted Her Head Silver and Bedazzled It
Cara Delevigne’s hair was insanely beautiful, the model painted her bald head silver, and beddazzled it. The look was described as part Danny Phantom, part Storm from X-Men, and 100 percent killer.
2. Solange Went Nearly Bare-Faced on the Red Carpet
Except for some ear makeup the music star was bared faced on the red carpet. To the naked eye, it looks like she’s not wearing anything other than a hint of potential brow makeup. But it’s possible she’s in on the secret that is microblading. She credits designer Thom Browne as the inspo, who sent models down the spring/summer 2017 runway with bright white drawn-on chokers.
3. Rihanna Wins the 2017 Met Gala With This Insane Comme des Garcons Dress
The star took the theme of the night literally—“Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garcons: The Art of the In-Between”—when she graced the red carpet in a badass flower bomb of a dress from the Comme des Garcons fall 2016 collection that the designer once described as “imagining punks in the 18th century, which was a time of so many revolutions.”
4. Bella Hadid Chopped Her Hair Into a Swingy Lob
Bella Hadid’s long, sweeping lion’s mane of hair is no more. Sharply angled, collarbone-bone grazing and mesmerizingly curled under, it’s basically Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface 2.0, This Time Without The Bangs.
5. Kim Kardashian Shocked Everyone With Her Low-Maintenance Look
A low-maintenance Kim Kardashian? Nope, no longer an oxymoron or a hypothetical—this new, laid-back Kimmy K is a reality, which we more or less confirmed at the 2017 Met Gala when she arrived solo (her first attendance at the gala without Kanye West in hand) in a surprisingly minimalist look: a stark white off-the-shoulder VivienneWestwood with tie detailing, complete with a sleek, blunt lob and simple sandals.
The 2017 Met Gala last night lived up to its name. Sometimes called the party of the year or the Oscars of the East Coast, the gala signals the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual blockbuster show, and an opportunity to admire the many celebrities who ascend the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
With a theme that focused on Rei Kawakubo’s inimitable, over-the-top designs for Comme desGarçons, you can be sure this year’s MetGala red carpet was filled to the brim with jaw-dropping looks. The hosts of the night were AnnaWintour, TomBrady, GiseleBündchen, Katy Perry and Pharrell Williams, the honorary chairwomen were Ms Kawakubo and CarolineKennedy, the former Uniter States ambassador to Japan.

Unfortunately, Kanye West’s outfit at the 2017 Met Gala will not be turning heads or inspiring memes compared to last year. The fashion designer and rapper won;t be attending the event tonight for the first time in four years.
However, his wife, Kim Kardashian will be attending. According to sources, the rapper will be enjoying his time off from public events and appearances.

Ontlametse Phalatse, a sufferer of the rare genetic disorder Progeria, which causes premature ageing, has died.
Expected by doctors to only live until the age of 14, Phalatse last month celebrated her 18th birthday.
She was the only known black female born with this disease.
According to an update on her Facebook page on Wednesday, Phalatse experienced breathing difficulties on Tuesday and was rushed to Hebron Clinic before being referred to Dr George Mukhari Academic Hospital.
“The doctors did everything possible to save her but unfortunately she passed on. She was surrounded by her mother, brother, family members and friends.
“The Phalatse family and Ontlametse Phalatse Trust would like to thank the nurses at Hebron Clinic and the Staff at Dr George Mukhari [Hospital] for their compassion and their effort in trying to save her.
“Our hearts are filled with pain and sadness but Ontlametse as we know her would want us to carry on with her courageous spirit. We will miss you sorely, Tsontso, our first lady. May you find eternal peace among the angels.”
She celebrated her birthday on March 25, and two days before that fulfilled her dream of meeting President Jacob Zuma before she turned 18.
Zuma surprised Phalatse with a basket filled with flowers and a cake at his Mahlamba Ndlopfu Presidential House in Pretoria.
The president described her as “very sharp” and articulate.
