We're not going to lie we're VERY surprised by the power couple, especially considering their eldest child is named Blue Ivy.

Then again, there's been a few celebrities who have gone down a similar route and named their child after themselves.

Ciara and Future (whose real name is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn) called their son Future.

Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith named their children Jaden and Willow.

Even Michael Jackson's children have his forename somewhere in their names. Literally all three of his children – Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince Michael Jackson II (aka Blanket).

Either way we can't wait to meet their bundles of joy.
