The Son of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky Who Has a Surprising Passion


Rihanna and A$AP Rocky welcomed their first son RZA in May 2022

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky might be the coolest parents ever.

The singer and her rapper boyfriend, who welcomed their first son, RZA Athelston Mayers, on May 13, 2022, in Los Angeles, weren’t initially prepared to expand their family.

“Planning? I wouldn’t say planning. But certainly not planning against it,” Rihanna told Vogue in April 2022.

“I always thought it would be marriage first, then a baby, but who the f— says it has to be that way. I’m certainly not gonna let that get in the way of me being a mom.”

A source told PEOPLE in January 2023 that Rocky and Rihanna “are very happy and focused on their baby boy.”

The insider added that “Rihanna loves being a mom [and] is obsessed with her baby boy,” while the rapper is “very involved and a great dad.”

Rihanna also used her 2023 Super Bowl Halftime performance to share that she was pregnant for the second time. The “Umbrella” singer debuted her baby bump during the opening moments of her show on Feb. 12, 2023, and her rep confirmed the pregnancy news to PEOPLE the same evening.

Rihanna and Rocky welcomed their second child, son Riot Rose Mayers, in August 2023.

Here’s everything to know about Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s son RZA.

His name has a special meaning

For the first 11 months of RZA’s life, the couple avoided sharing their son’s name publicly.

“We just didn’t get around to it yet really,” Rihanna told the Associated Press in November 2022. “We’ve just been living. But I guess there’s a certain freedom that comes with kind of just, like, getting it out there.”

In May 2023, the boy’s name was revealed to be RZA Athelston Mayers, which pays homage to the producer and rapper RZA, leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs.

Two months later, the famed rapper told CNN that he was flattered by Rihanna and Rocky’s name choice. “[It’s] a great honor to know that there’s another generation that’s not even of my own household that feels the strength and the inspiration of that name,” RZA said, adding: “All the blessings in the world from me.”
