Throughout the years fans have witnessed different facets of the twins — from Beyoncé iconically performing while pregnant with them at the 60th annual Grammy Awards to them making appearances at Super Bowl games and cameos in the "Ya Ya" singer's films.

Beyoncé's mom, Tina Knowles, recently gave an update on how her grandchildren are blossoming and making their own marks on the world. She told E! News, "Rumi is amazing — an amazing artist, painter and creator." And as for Sir, Grandma Knowles said he's "very quiet and very, very smart,” adding that he's good with numbers.

In April, Rumi made history as the youngest female artist to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 after Beyoncé's song "Protector," off "Cowboy Carter," debuted at No. 42 on the streaming, airplay and sales based chart.

By doing so, Rumi broke her sister Blue Ivy's record, who first broke the record in 2019 when she appeared on the song "Brown Skin Girl." Blue Ivy was just 7 years old when the song peaked at No. 76 on the chart.

Blue Ivy still holds the title as the youngest person to ever appear on a Billboard chart due to her feature on her dad Jay Z's 2012 song "Glory."

It certainly seems the twins have a lot to look forward to and promising futures as they already appear to be following in their older sister's footsteps.

Happy birthday, Rumi and Sir!
