Tina Knowles Says the Sweetest Thing About What Blue Ivy Is Like as a Big Sister

Sounds like Sir Carter and Rumi are pretty lucky.

Blue Ivy would be forgiven if she were a little bit jealous of her brand-new twin siblings, but Tina Knowles has just confirmed that she is in fact is a "very proud" big sis.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z welcomed Sir Carter and Rumi on June 13, with Bey recently sharing the first photo their latest arrivals (opens in new tab) in a snap reminiscent of Botticelli's classical Venus rising out of the ocean.

On five-year-old Blue Ivy, she went on: "She's very proud and very excited. She's a good big sister, she really is."

Tina's husband Richard Lawson added: "She cares for them a lot."

She added that fans will have to wait to hear from Beyoncé and Jay-Z about the significance of their children's unique names (opens in new tab), although she did share a poem by 13th century poet Rumi on Instagram over the weekend.
