Beyoncé, 38, and husband Jay-Z, 50, welcomed Sir and twin sister Rumi in June 2017. The couple are also parents to 8-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

In June, Beyoncé and Disney shared a joint press release about "Black Is King," calling it a "celebratory memoir for the world on the Black experience." The visual album tells the story of a young African king who undergoes a "transcendent journey through betrayal, love and self-identity" before assuming his rightful place on the throne.

Beyoncé wrote, produced and directed the album, which works as a companion piece to the 2019 album "The Lion King: The Gift," the soundtrack she curated for the 2019 "The Lion King" movie. The singer starred as the lioness Nala in the full-length musical drama.

Sir is hardly the only child in the Carter-Knowles family to make headlines this summer. Big sister Blue Ivy got attention in June when she won the BET Her prize and became the youngest winner in the BET Awards' 20-year history.
