Ziggy Marley and family cover B3 Parenting Magazine, a Caribbean parenting lifestyle magazine that celebrates the modern parenting lifestyle. Ziggy, who is the son of late reggae legend Bob Marley, can be seen pictured on the magazine’s cover with his wife Orly and their four children.
Though they have a tremendous love for the Caribbean culture, the Marleys are raising their kids with traditions from both of their backgrounds.
“My wife is Middle Eastern—she’s from Israel; her parents are from Iran—so when we got married, the food got blended,” Ziggy recently said in an interview with People magazine. “I introduced her to my favorites, like fish, porridges and different Caribbean seasonings. And her family introduced me to the falafels and rice.”
He added, “Within my culture, there’s a lot of spirituality, philosophies, ideas—love, humility, respecting each other,” says Marley, who grew up as the oldest son in a family of 11 kids. “From her side, it’s family: There’s a connectivity there, the bonds of family are very important on her side. It’s a good balance of philosophies, ideas from my side and practical living from her side with family.”
