The newborn boy born to Barbadian superstar Rihanna and her lover A$AP Rocky has finally been given a name.
After being kept a secret for over a year, the name of the singer’s kid has been made public: “RZA Athelston Mayers.”
Mayers was named after producer and rapper RZA, who is also the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Meyers certificate of live birth obtained by Daily Mail indicates that he was given his father’s middle name of Athelston. However, his middle name has been listed as ‘Athelaston’ by multiple outlets previously.
The certificate also indicates that RZA was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Rihanna appears to have hinted at her son’s name following his birth on May 13 of last year, as she has worn clothing repping Wu-Tang Clan multiple times since giving birth.
RZA Athelston Mayers is Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s first child together, and they are expecting their second child together.
Meanwhile, Rihanna has revealed that she is enjoying her current pregnancy more than her first.
The 35-year-old singer and businesswoman, who announced her second pregnancy in February 2023, made this revelation in an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the 2023 Met Gala in New York City.
Speaking in the interview, the mother of one explained that her current pregnancy feels different from the first, and she is enjoying it more.
She said she feels more energetic and doesn’t have as many cravings as she did while pregnant with her son, but she has been feeling nauseous.
“It’s so different from the first one. No cravings, tons of nausea. Everything is different, but I’m enjoying it. I feel good. I feel energetic,” her words.
On why she decided to get pregnant again barely a year after giving birth to her first child, Rihanna said, “I’m in love. I’m obsessed. And I don’t even feel guilty about it.”
