Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s first child was born last year, and the couple has been meticulous in not letting any pictures of the baby get leaked.
However, the reality of stars is awful, as they get followed by paparazzi everywhere and have little to no privacy. Riri knew for a long time that one day or the other, their child would be exposed to the world without their consent.
So the power couple decided to upload images of their baby on their own terms before anyone could profit from leaking the kid’s photos. We live in a sad reality where pictures of celebrities and their loved ones are sold without remorse or consent.
At least Rihanna is still in control of her life and being the badass we all know her to be. So now that she has revealed some cute pictures of her baby, let’s ogle at them and find out more about this adorable ball of happiness.
What Is Rihanna’s Baby’s Name? How to Pronounce It?
After a year of Rihanna giving birth to her and A$AP Rocky’s child, the little bundle of joy’s name has finally been revealed to be RZA Athelston Mayers. The name is pronounced Rizza. The news came out while Rihanna was pregnant with their second child.
RZA’s birth certificate was leaked online, which led to people finding out the name. In an interview, Rihanna commented, “I just went straight into protective mode. Like there wasn’t even time for rage. As parents, it just feels so icky, like a violation.”
As the birth certificate was exposed without the parent’s consent, the couple is justified in feeling rage. Everyone will admit that the couple tried to keep their son away from prying eyes.
Why Did Rihanna Name Her on RZA?
Rihanna named her baby RZA after the American rapper who is the hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan leader. The rapper produced albums for the group as well as the members. It looks like the couple chose the name out of respect for the music personality.
As we all know, both Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are accomplished musicians, so it is unsurprising that they would choose a name they both related to in the industry.
Why Did Rihanna Reveal Her Baby’s Name After So Long?
Ever since Rihanna and A$AP Rocky became parents, the couple has kept low and kept media attention away from their child. They have spent time together quietly and kept their photos private.
Rihanna claimed that they didn’t reveal the kid’s name because “We just didn’t get around to it yet, really” While the couple is rid of their long-kept low profile, it was not done in the best of way. Just as expected, Riri took immediate steps to prevent more such things from happening.
She decided it was better to upload photos of RZA herself rather than wait for others to leak them. She posted a few candid pictures of RZA to an unnamed blog. She even joined tikTok and posted a video of the kid smiling and playing.
As parents, Rihanna felt that it was unjust for the world to see pictures of her baby without their consent. “We get to decide as parents when and how we do that. End of story.”
Once again, the girl boss has proved her industry experience and taken the leash back into her hand. As RZA’s little sibling is also on the way, we hope that the couple can have more privacy and avoid the leaks that happened with the birth certificate.
Recently the couple was seen at the Met Gala, absolutely slaying the Karl Lagerfeld them.
Let us know your thoughts on the leaked name and details. Will Rihanna continue staying low-profile after the second baby? Here’s to hoping that the paparazzi can leave the family alone.
