The wait is over for Beyoncé's fans. Since Sir and Rumi, her twins with husband Jay-Z, were born in June, the world has awaited a glimpse of the babies.
Early Friday, Beyoncé finally shared a photo, posted to her Instagram account. It shows her holding the twins and has the caption, "Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today."
It's unclear whether the caption means the photograph was taken one month ago or the children were born one month ago. The couple did not officially announce the birth, although in late June several outlets reported that the twins had been born.
Beyoncé appears to be in a seaside garden of sorts. Climbing roses clinging to a lattice create a colorful halo around the barefoot pop star's head. A flowing blue veil adorns her blond locks. Held closely to her chest, wrapped in floral swaddling, are two infants.
Light's bittersweet nomination
Judith Light's third prime-time Emmy nomination came this week, but not without a pang of grief. This will be Light's first awards season in 36 years without her manager, Herb Hamsher, who died in October. Light dedicated her nomination to him during an interview. "I think of him now because I think, 'Oh I want to call him and tell him.' We would be jumping up and down together," Light said. This is Light's second nomination for playing Shelly Pfefferman, the ex-wife of Jeffrey Tambor's character in Amazon's "Transparent." Light said, "In a way, I feel him watching over me."
KARE exit: KARE 11 TV reporter Jay Olstad announced Friday that he's leaving the station "to begin a new chapter" in his life that will allow him to spend more time with his family, according to his public Facebook page. Olstad, who shared the news earlier on his personal Facebook page, said he's leaving the news business in a week after 16 years, including six at KARE, but didn't provide details about his plans. "I have a passion for telling people's stories, but often times I miss out on my own," he said in his Facebook post. "That's the job. But if there's one thing I've learned from all those interviews and all those stories is that time is not guaranteed to anyone." In saying goodbye, Olstad urged viewers to support local journalists. "They are not fake. They are not perfect. They work hard to cover your community which is also their own," he said.
