Rihanna and ASAP Rocky’s son, who was born last year, has been named Athelston Mayers.
DailyMail.com said that it obtained a copy of the child’s birth certificate. It seems like he was named after producer and rapper RZA, the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan.
The couple welcomed the baby boy on May 13, 2022, two months after Rihanna announced her pregnancy with a photo shoot in New York City.
Speaking to Complex in 2022, Rocky opened up about fatherhood, calling it “beautiful”.
“Honestly, I think fatherhood gives me more time to do exactly what I want. I don’t have time for anything that isn’t priorities. I love it. Everything is just based around my newfound love for being a dad and a family man. It’s lit right now. I can’t even describe it,” he told the outlet.
During an appearance on the Apple Music 1 radio in January this year, the rapper once again opened up about being a father.
“It’s so unexplainable. It’s just one of those things. I’m a member of our club now, like the dad club. You see a dad, you see me. I’m playing on, I’m a full dad now,” he said.
In February 2023, Rihanna announced her second pregnancy by showing off her baby bump during her Super Bowl Halftime performance.
During a pre-Super Bowl press conference, Rihanna spoke about the challenge of performing at the show as a new mother.
“When you become a mom, there’s something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world — you can do anything. And the Super Bowl is one of the biggest stages in the world, so as scary as that was… there’s something exhilarating about the challenge of it all,” she said.
