Beyonce and Jay Z's twin names have reportedly been revealed as Shawn Jr and Bea, apparently in honour of their parents.

The couple welcomed their little boy and girl just last week, but have so far kept mum about their names.

Beyonce, 35, and 47-year-old Jay Z - whose real name is Shawn Carter - have expanded the family with Shawn and Bea, who share older sister Blue Ivy, 5.

Some fans had speculated that Blue's siblings would be named after other colours - or perhaps more unrealistically, other colour/plant combinations such as White Lilly or Purple Shrub.

Shawn Jr and Bea were first reported as the twins' names by an insider who leaked them to gossip website Media Takeout.

The infant's names have not been officially announced.
