Rihanna’s baby boy, whom she has with her partner, A$AP Rocky, was born a year ago. Since then, the two have kept his name under wraps. ‘OH na na, what’s his name?’ is the question everyone has been asking and we finally have an answer! The Daily Mail obtained the baby’s birth certificate revealing that his full name is RZA Athelston Mayers, inspired by the iconic producer, rapper, and leader of Wu-Tang Clan.
Coming from two artists as dope as Riri and Rocky, we aren’t surprised by their son’s name. Let’s be honest, there was no way they were giving him an average name. The name is unique, impressive, and edgy. It also has some meaning behind it. The Barbados native is an all time and endowed fan of RZA, a Wu-Tang member, so it only made sense to name her son after him. The name is also a continuation of their family name. Though RZA is a nod to the Wu-Tang member, Athelston Mayers, his middle and last name, is taken from Rocky, whose full name is Rakim Mayers.
While fans speculated, they didn’t really have to look that far. The 35-year-old “Work” singer had been dropping hints through her fashion choices. On multiple occasions, the singer has been spotted sporting a RZA tee, Wu Tang jersey, and more.
Rocky took to Instagram and confirmed his son’s name after making a birthday post for him, captioned “WU TANG IS 4 DA CHUREN. Happy 1st Birthday to my firstborn. RZA <3”
The 34-year-old rapper posted adorable photos of the small family of three and a couple of photos of himself and baby RZA. To say how fast the year has flown by would be an understatement. Where does the time go? Just yesterday, we were all awaiting the birth of Riri’s firstborn, RZA, and now he’s a one-year-old and we’re waiting for the arrival of baby number 2!
Riri announced her pregnancy with her second child during her Super Bowl Halftime Performance. An official due date hasn’t been released, but we do know since the pregnancy reveal was in February, she may be having a 2023 baby. All congratulations are in order for the couple’s beautiful and growing family!
