Pop star Beyoncé has shared a picture of her twins, Sir Carter and Rumi, in an Instagram post, causing an internet sensation once more in her first public acknowledgement of their birth.

"Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today," Beyoncé (35) wrote in the post, which showed her holding her two infants. She wore a blue veil and a colourful flowing robe that fell off her left shoulder. The picture had been "liked" more than 6.5 million times nine hours after it was posted.

Social media lit up, with thousands of people expressing their excitement about the trending photo. Many happily said it was the first image they woke up to.

Neither Beyoncé, one of the world's most popular singers, nor her husband, 47-year-old rap star and entrepreneur Jay-Z, had made any announcement about the birth until now.

The singer, one of the most powerful women in the music business, announced the pregnancy on her Instagram account in February, along with an image of her posing in lingerie and caressing a noticeable baby bump.

The photo became the most-liked Instagram picture of all time, with 11 million likes.
