Since the birth of her twins, Sir & Rumi, Beyoncé has not shared any close-up photos of her babies. While they appear during vacation shots with Jay-Z on their recent trip to Italy, the couple has made it a point to keep them out of the public eye. Blue Ivy seems comfortable enough in the spotlight but her siblings have had limited exposure to the flashing lights. And that's for good reason too since, after all, they're only one year old. As she gets back to touring with her husband, Bey decided to end her vacay with the cutest photo of herself enjoying time with her babies, marking the first occasion she has shared a close-up photo of them.

Fans were initially begging the couple to let them in on their private life, hoping for a gossip magazine to bid big on the first photos of the children. However, with a year passing by, Bey and Jay weren't into the entire idea of essentially pimping out their children for cash so the first photo comes via Beyoncé's website. Fan accounts were quick to repost the images, making sure that everybody was aware that Queen Bey had finally come through with some photos of the twins.

The family was recently spending time on a $180 million yacht (not a typo...) in Italy where photos of Rumi in the hot-tub became a hot commodity. The rare occasion that we see a photo of Beyoncé and her kids marks an adorable one as the bunch are all smiles for the camera. Check out the cute shot below.
