Rihanna and A$AP Rocky celebrate son RZA’s first birthday – PEOPLE

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky celebrate their baby boy!

The pregnant singer, 35, and her partner, 34, celebrated their son RZA Athelston’s birthday with a carousel featuring various family photos.

A$AP started the post with a cute picture of RZA crawling on a blanket next to the superstar artist and A$AP kissing Rocky on the cheek. He also shared several other photos of the three posing for the cameras and acting goofy in the mirror.

He then posted several snaps showing his bond with his son, including a shot of him shaving with RZA in his arms, and even a video of the proud father holding his son up and dancing around with him.

His final slide of the post featured a video of Wu Tang Clan founding member Ol’ Dirty Bastard at an awards ceremony, stating, “Wu Tang Clan is for the kids.”

He echoed the sentiment in his caption for the post on Instagram, writing, “WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN 🤲” HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY TO MY 1ST BORN. RZA❤️.”

The little boy’s unique nickname was confirmed by the birth certificate PEOPLE received earlier this week.

The name is a tribute to Wu-Tang Clan leader, producer and rapper RZA (pronounced “Rizza”), whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs.

The name reveal comes nearly a year after the “Diamonds” singer and Rocky gave birth to their first child together, and just months after Rihanna surprised the world with a second pregnancy during her Super Bowl halftime show.


“She loves being a mom so her thoughts are here at the moment,” a source told PEOPLE in February. “She’s happier than ever.”

In British Vogue’s March issue, Rihanna opened up about new motherhood, saying her first few months with the child were “legendary.”

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