Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are finally sharing their son’s name exactly one year after his birth: RZA. To mark the baby’s first birthday on May 13, Rocky shared an Instagram post with various intimate family pictures. In his caption, Rocky confirmed recent reports that the baby was named after the Wu-Tang Clan artist of the same name. “Wu Tang Iz 4 Da Churen,” he wrote. “Happy 1st birthday to my firstborn. RZA.” A birth certificate previously obtained by PEOPLE revealed the full name to be RZA Athelstan Mayer. The middle name is the same as Rocky, whose full name is Rakim Athelston Meyers.
While she remains tight-lipped about her personal life and upcoming album, Rihanna dropped a hint about the name of her first child as she was spotted wearing an RZA T-shirt in New York City in August 2022. Just a few months after welcoming their son. The rapper – born Robert Fitzgerald Diggs – is hugely influential in hip-hop and has also produced several films including the “Kill Bill” franchise.
Rihanna and Rocky welcomed their son on May 13, 2022, after nearly two years of dating and many years of friendship. The couple is currently expecting their second child, and Rihanna famously revealed the news during her halftime show performance at the Super Bowl in February. Rihanna recently spoke about her second pregnancy in an interview at the Met Gala, saying, “No cravings. Too nauseated. Everything’s different, but I’m enjoying it.”
