The name of pop sensation Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky’s son has finally been revealed after almost a year since he was born. Ahead of the baby boy’s first birthday, it is being reported that he has been named RZA Athelston Mayer.
UK-based publication Daily Mail obtained a copy of the little munchkin’s certificate of live birth, revealing his name. Wondering what is RZA and what’s the inspiration behind it? Well, the 1-year-old baby has been named in honour of American hip hop collective Wu-Tang Clan’s member rapper RZA.
Rihanna also hinted at her son’s name by wearing clothes representing Wu-Tang Clan, which comprised RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and the late Ol’ Dirty B**tard several times since becoming a mother. Fans earlier, however, speculated that he might have been named Noah.
In a recent interview, the Diamonds singer shared how she fiercely protected her baby boy from the spotlight. “I just went straight into protective mode. Like there wasn’t even time for rage,” Rihanna said. “As parents, it just feels so icky, like a violation,” she added.
The Fenty Beauty founder is expecting her second child with longtime partner A$AP Rocky. The diva flaunted her baby bump in a billowing white ensemble as she walked the Met Gala 2023 red carpet with him.
