Rihanna and A$AP Rocky snapped in sweet embrace after baby son's name revealed

The name of Rihanna’s son has finally been revealed after almost a full year of secrecy.

Rihanna, 35, and her rapper partner A$AP Rocky, 34, welcomed their baby into the world on May 13 last year, after starting dating in 2020.

The youngster’s moniker seems to have been inspired by the Wu-Tang Clan and, sweetly, the youngster’s dad.

Umbrella singer RiRi and A$AP – who are currently expecting baby number two – have named the tot RZA Athelston Mayers.

This is according to a birth certificate obtained by DailyMail.com. 

It looks like the tot has been named in tribute to producer and rapper RZA, 53, leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs.

The baby’s name also includes dad A$AP’s middle name of Athelston, with his parents spotted on a sweet shopping trip in West Hollywood together on Wednesday, after the news broke.

Snapped walking arm in arm along the pavement, Rihanna was chic and on brand in white jeans and a Savage x Fenty crop-top, which showed off her blossoming baby bump.

She wore on oversized navy jacket on top, with a tailor mark pattern, over another quilted white coat, while A$AP was dressed in bleached jeans and a bedazzled red jacket.

At one point, the lovebirds and doting parents were seen pausing for a cuddle as RiRi leant into her partner, who put his hands around her waist as he beamed.

Fans had recently speculated that their little boy might have been named Noah, but this latest development appears to have put an end to those rumours.

The ‘certificate of live birth’ also indicates RZA was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Among Rihanna’s recent hints about her son’s secret name include her carrying the smiling boy while wearing a baggy black Wu-Tang Clan top as she left a meal at the Giorgio Baldi Italian restaurant in Santa Monica on April 5.

She has also been seen in tops emblazoned with RZA’s name.

Her partner is also a huge fan of the group, and he has collaborated with Raekwon, 53, from the band on the 2015 song Fly International Luxurious Art.

A$AP Mob, the collective that Rocky belongs to, also earned comparisons to the legendarily hip-hop group early in its existence.

The pop superstar revealed she was pregnant with her second baby in show-stopping fashion by unveiling her baby bump during her triumphant Super Bowl halftime performance in February.

Since them, she and A$AP have been spotted out and about plenty together, not least at the swanky Met Gala earlier in May, where they arrived very fashionably late.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Rihanna and A$AP Rocky for comment.
