That wasn’t Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s twins in that On The Run II tour video

Pictures of one set of visuals from last night's tour opener in Cardiff went viral after fans presumed they featured Rumi and Sir Carter

A representative for Beyoncé and Jay-Z has confirmed that the infants the couple were seen holding in one of their On The Run II tour videos were not their own children.

The superstar duo opened their latest world tour in Cardiff last night (June 6), with the two-and-a-half-hour show featuring the performance of over 40 songs from the pair’s respective back catalogues.

One interlude during last night’s gig saw a set of visuals being projected on three huge screens, depicting both Beyoncé and Jay-Z holding two babies either side of an orange-coloured screen which projected the messages ‘Love never changes’ and ‘Love is universal’.

Pictures of those visuals subsequently went viral after many fans became convinced that the babies featured in the clip were the couple’s twin children, Rumi and Sir Carter. However, a rep for Beyoncé and Jay-Z told Buzzfeed overnight that the infants in the videos were not in fact the couple’s children.

The identity of the babies the pair were actually holding is still unclear.

During their 42-song set last night, Beyoncé and Jay-Z performed the songs ”03 Bonnie & Clyde’, ‘Drunk In Love’ and ‘Upgrade U’ together – you can watch fan-shot footage of their on-stage collaborations here.

The duo have apparently rehearsed over 60 songs for the tour, suggesting that the setlist will change as the tour progresses.
