Rihanna and rapper ASAP Rocky have named their son –Riot Rose Mayers. However, it’s possible the name might be a connection to A$AP’s recent song ‘Riot’ from earlier this year, which featured Pharrell Williams.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky also have a 16-month-old son named RZA Athelston Mayers The name of the couple’s second son was revealed, a month after the singer gave birth. Riot was born on August 1, 2023, at in Los Angeles.
A seen copy of Riot’s birth certificate shows that he was born on August 1, 2023, at 7:41 a.m. at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
After naming their first child, who was born in May of 2022, RZA Athelston Mayers, the couple decided to continue their naming custom by choosing yet another name that began with an “R.”
Rihanna had previously posted pictures of RZA seven months after his birth. The couple was said to be expecting their second child last month.
When Rihanna showed up to the Super Bowl halftime show in February sporting a baby bump, she became famous for announcing that she was having a second child. For their first child, the couple carefully chose the name RZA.
Their son’s name is a nod to RZA, the 54-year-old rapper and producer who leads the Wu-Tang Clan and goes by Robert Fitzgerald Diggs. Additionally, it refers to A$AP’s middle name.
It was announced last month that the singer now believes her family is “complete.” And the rapper and singer are said to have no plans to have any additional children.
In a March 2023 interview with British Vogue, the Barbados-born superstar discussed motherhood and said:
‘Having a kid honestly unlocks another side of life where you’re now in the matrix with the people who’ve already had kids,’ she said, adding, ‘You come to have a different respect for moms and dads.’
The Fenty Beauty CEO went on to say that ‘everything changes when you have a baby.’
‘Oh my God, it’s legendary. 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.’
Speaking of her son’s birth she shared:
‘Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts. And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don’t sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to.’
