Beyoncé’s Youngest Daughter Rumi Looks Exactly Like Blue Ivy

By now, we all know that Beyoncé and Jay Z’s genes are as strong as they can be. Blue Ivy Carter is essentially a carbon copy of her mom, and it looks like the genetics keep trickling down because Beyoncé’s youngest daughter, Rumi Carter, is also a carbon copy of her older sister.

Over the years, we’ve seen Blue Ivy grow up right before our eyes, going from budding fashionista to full-blown superstar, as we have witnessed her absolutely eat the choreography of her very own dance segment on the Renaissance World Tour. However, twins Rumi and Sir, who just turned six in June, have been more sheltered from the public eye — until now.

During one of the New Jersey stops on Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour, Rumi made a rare appearance on social media, posing for a backstage picture with her mom. The snap was shared via Madonna’s Instagram account after the pop idol took daughters Mercy, Stella, and Estere to the concert. While the meeting of stars is almost too powerful to witness, it’s Rumi’s striking resemblance to Blue that has us speechless. I mean, it practically feels like we turned back time and are seeing five-year-old Blue all over again.

Earlier this summer, Rumi also started making the rounds on social media after she was spotted at one of Beyoncé’s shows in Europe with dad Jay-Z. Though the videos were super short, people immediately pointed out how much she looked like Blue. “Omgggggg Rumi is LITERALLY Blue’s twin!” someone wrote on TikTok sharing another clip of the twin.

In fact, the likeness is so astonishing that fans were actually extremely confused when aunt Solange posted a cute throwback video dancing to Missy Elliot’s “Work It” with Blue to celebrate her birthday in June. (Scroll to the last slide below to see.)

The video immediately started circulating on social media, with many assuming it was Rumi dancing alongside her aunt. “I’m confused some people say it’s Rumi others say it’s Blue,” someone commented on TikTok. “WHO THAT GIRL IS PLZZ 😭.”

Thankfully, Beyoncé’s mom Tina Knowles quickly clarified on her own Instagram page later. “This is Blue and her Aunty Solo dancing together years ago,” she wrote. Having all your doppelgängers in one home, what a flex!
