The Beyhive night owls went wild late Thursday night (or early Friday morning depending on your time zone) when Beyoncé posted the first ever photo of twins Sir Carter and Rumi on Instagram. Dressed in an extravagant and summery purple gown while standing in an opulent-looking garden by the sea, Queen Bey offered fans an eagerly anticipated glimpse of the twins, who turned one month old.
The unveiling shook up fans who have been left in the dark while Beyoncé, 35, and husband JAY-Z, 47, kept a low profile following the twins' birth. The entire family, including first-born daughter Blue Ivy, 5, are currently spending some private bonding time in Malibu for the remainder of the summer.
While most of the responses to the twin's celebratory one-month-old photo have been in congratulations, some responders are expressing their dislike for the twins' names or scratching their heads at the couple's name choice. Beyoncé and JAY-Z, who have won 20 and 21 Grammy Awards respectively and have a joint net worth of $1.6 billion, are unlikely to be squashed by haters, though.
Here are some of the best reactions in the immediate hours after Beyoncé shared a first look at the twins:
1Warn Us Next Time!
Some members of the Beyhive were not ready AT ALL.
2Don't Even Try To One-Up This
Everyone else can take a break for the rest of the week.
3Racking Up The Likes
Beyoncé already holds the record for most liked Instagram photo of all time. Could she top herself this time?

Don't expect group playdates between the Wests and the Carters, though. Kanye complained that North and Blue Ivy have never even played together.

Beyoncé's gonna drop an album that's just audio from the twins' baby monitor and we'll all get tidal just to hear it. #beyoncetwins— Maddie (@kodakfeelings) July 14, 2017
Thank god she didn't make her picture exclusive to Tidal. How many free trials can we sign up for?

The first Photoshop art has already popped up and the internet waits with baited breath for many more, plus hopefully some hilarious fan recreations.

One person who might not be jumping for joy? Big sister Blue, who's held the spotlight solo for five years.

So much for sleep.
13But Can We All Get Over Their Names Now?
LISTEN Y'ALL, SHE SPECIFICALLY PUT SIR CARTER AND RUMI, NOT SIR AND RUMI CARTER. WE WILL REFER TO KING #1 BY HIS COMPLETE NAME, SIR CARTER pic.twitter.com/37bgVVzHWI— state attorney (@beygency) July 14, 2017
Meanwhile, people are still confused over 1) the gender of the twins (most likely boy and girl) and their names: Is it Sir Carter or Sir Carter Carter?
