Rza Mayers news: ASAP Rocky with Rihanna at a press event.

A$AP Rocky Marks Son’s First Birthday (& Confirms His Name is Rza!)

It’s a very special day in Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s world – they’re celebrating their son’s first birthday! Taking to Instagram, A$AP not only posted a series of photos of their sweet boy but also confirmed his name is Rza Mayers:

“WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN’ HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN, RZA,” he writes alongside the carousel. His quote of course refers to the fact baby RZA is named after Wu-Tang Clan producer and rapper RZA.

This is the first time the baby’s name has been shared by either Rihanna or A$AP. Last week, Rza Mayer’s birth certificate was unfortunately obtained by a certain tabloid and leaked to the public – not cool at all!

Rihanna and A$AP are currently expecting their second child together. You might remember RiRi made the big reveal during her Super Bowl half-time performance earlier this year, cradling her tummy on the epic flying stage. Her reps subsequently confirmed to a number of new outlets that yes, it was indeed a pregnancy reveal!

During a press conference for Apple Music before the show, Rihanna spoke about motherhood playing a role in her decision to take part in the Super Bowl:

“When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world, you could do anything. And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world. So as scary as that was because I haven’t been on stage in seven years, there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all. And it’s important for me to do this, this year. It’s important for representation, it’s important for my son to see that.”
