The name of Rihanna’s son has finally been revealed

Rhanna and A$AP Rocky kept their son’s name a secret for a year, but the moniker has finally been revealed.

The Daily Mail shared a copy of the baby’s birth certificate, which shows his full name is RZA Athelston Mayers. He appears to be named after Wu-Tang Clan member RZA (whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs), pronounced “Rizza.” The baby shares his middle name, Athelston, with dad Rocky. The birth certificate also confirms RZA’s date of birth was May 13, 2022.

As the tabloid noted, Rihanna had hinted at the baby’s name on April 5, where she was spotted carrying little RZA while wearing a Wu-Tang Clan shirt. She’d also been photographed in August 2022 wearing a RZA tee.

Rihanna gave the first glimpse at baby RZA in a video shared in Dec. 2022, showing the smiling infant enjoying a car ride. To this date, it’s Rihanna’s only video on the platform.

The little one also posed alongside his mom and dad in a photoshoot for British Vogue in February. In the cover story, Rihanna opened up about becoming a mom, sharing that motherhood is “legendary.”

She added, “It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever. You literally try to remember it—and there are photos of my life before—but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because…Because it doesn’t matter.”

During her Super Bowl performance, Rihanna showed off her baby bump, revealing she’s expecting her second child. We’ll have to see what creative name Rihanna and Rocky go for.
