Pop queen Rihanna and her beau A$AP Rocky are on cloud nine with their newest addition! The dynamic duo welcomed their second son this summer, and guess what? They’ve named him Riot Rose Mayers. Talk about a name with a punch!
Keeping up with the « R » trend in their names (Rihanna’s full name being Robyn Rihanna Fenty and A$AP Rocky’s being Rakim Athelaston Mayers), Riot Rose fits right in. The little heartbreaker was born on August 1 at the renowned Cedars Sinai Medical Center in LA.
Remember Rihanna’s show-stopping moment at the 2023 Super Bowl halftime show? Yep, that’s when she debuted her baby bump, looking radiant in a fiery red outfit. And who could forget her touching her belly while singing her iconic hits? It was a moment to remember!
The couple’s first child, RZA, turned one in May 2022. A$AP Rocky took to Instagram to celebrate, sharing, « WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN. HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN. RZA. » The name RZA is a nod to the legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper.
Motherhood has been a dazzling journey for Rihanna. She’s been all hearts and smiles talking about her first-born. In a chat with « Entertainment Tonight » in 2022, she gushed about RZA being a « happy » baby. « Oh my God, the mornings, like, seeing his morning face! » she exclaimed. « It’s the cutest, it’s my favorite part of the day. »
She also shared with People how RZA is in a « cuddly » phase. « He is funny, he’s happy — and he’s fat! » she laughed. « It’s a real cuddly stage right now. »
As for baby number two? Rihanna told British Vogue she was open to whatever the universe had in store. « Girl, boy. Whatever, » she said with her signature confidence. Well, the universe answered with Riot Rose, and we’re here for it!
