Look up the term "power couple" in the dictionary and you might find a photo of parents of three, Beyoncé and JAY-Z. While Bey has posted tons of photos of their oldest daughter over the years, she's been a lot more private when it comes to sharing snapshots of her twins, only showing them off here and there (like in this video for her Ivy Park x Adidas rodeo-themed collection [1]).

Keep reading to learn a little bit more about Beyoncé and JAY-Z's three kids and see some of their sweet family photos.

Blue Ivy Carter

Jay Z and Beyoncé's first child, a daughter named Blue, was born on Jan. 7, 2012. Despite just being a kid, she already has a seriously killer fashion sense judging by her mom's Instagram. She's also the youngest person to ever win a BET award [3], which she earned when she was featured in her mom's song "Brown Skin Girl" from The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack album. She's also become the second youngest person to ever win a Grammy [4] for the same track at just 9 years old.

Sir and Rumi Carter

Beyoncé and JAY-Z welcomed their second and third children, twins, son Sir and daughter Rumi, on June 13, 2017. Although the singer has shared several of photos of Blue Ivy on social media, she's kept her younger children almost totally out of the spotlight thus far.

In the documentary Homecoming, the 37-year-old mom explained that her pregnancy with the twins was especially taxing on her body [5]. "I was supposed to do Coachella the year prior, but I got pregnant unexpectedly," she explained in a monologue. "And it ended up being twins, which was even more of a surprise. My body went through more than I knew it could. I was 218 pounds the day I gave birth. I had an extremely difficult pregnancy. I had high blood pressure, toxemia, preeclampsia [6], and, in the womb, one of my babies' heartbeats paused a few times, so I had to get an emergency C-section [7]."
