Did Beyonce Name Sir Carter After Sir John?

Did Beyoncé Name One of the Twins After Her Makeup Artist?

By now, even people who live under rocks know that Beyoncé has shared the names and first images of her twins, who were born on June 13 or 14. World, meet Sir Carter and Rumi, who join their big sister Blue Ivy as our #lifegoals.

Since the name reveal was a capital-B Big Deal, internet theories abound. While we can't speak to the validity of any of these hunches, there's one in particular we really hope is true. Sir Carter's name might be slightly unconventional, but there's another pretty important Sir in Beyoncé's life, and that's her longtime makeup artist Sir John.

While he's painted the faces of everyone from Naomi Campbell to Kim Kardashian West, Sir John's arguably best known for the work he's done with Beyoncé. He was the official makeup artist for her Formation World Tour and 2017 Grammys, where we all know she debuted her baby bump in all of its golden glory. In short, they're close pals. Close enough to be the inspiration for Sir Carter's name?

Again, this is all speculation, but we love the idea of a diva naming her child after someone from her glam squad. For the record, Sir John himself is just as excited as we are about welcoming his potential namesake and Rumi into the world.

Congrats fam. Love you 🐝💗
