After she kept fans guessing!

For nearly a year, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have kept their first-born son’s name a secret. Well, according to a birth certificate obtained by The Daily Mail, the almost one-year-old’s name is…RZA Athelston Mayers. 

If you are familiar with the Wu-Tang Clan, then you know that the 35-year-old’s son’s first name is a nod to the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, producer/rapper RZA.


Now that we are thinking back, putting all of the pieces together, Rihanna did sport a lot of Wu-Tang Clan apparel while out and about with baby and A$AP Rocky on various occasions. The Umbrella singer was probably hinting to her son’s name and we didn’t even know it.

It is obvious that Rihanna is a big Wu-Tang Clan fan, and of course, so is A$AP Rocky. Back in 2015, he collaborated with Raekwon on the 2015 song, “Fly International Luxurious Art”. A$AP and his A$AP Mob’s sound has even been compared to the legendarily Hip-Hop group when they first came onto the rap scene.

As for RZA’s middle name, well, not to be confused with the Anglo-Saxon king, Athelstan, Athelston is also A$AP Rocky’s middle name.

RZA was born in May 2022 and the Grammy award-winning singer, when she covered British Vogue, said that the birthing experience of her first child was “beautiful”.

“It was beautiful,” she said when discussing her labor and delivery experience. “I cannot believe it,” she continued. “Essentially, from one person I became two.”

Rihanna went on to say that, “You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts.”

Well, Rihanna is about to do it all over again as she stunned the world at the conclusion of her history-making half time show at Super Bowl LVI. The Diamonds singer caressed her baby bump, letting the world know that she, A$AP Rocky, and RZA will now be four.

We cannot wait to meet the new addition to the family and most definitely cannot wait to hear what their moniker will be!
