Fenty Beauty mogul and new mother of two, Rihanna, has announced the name of her second baby boy and it’s safe to say she’s keeping the R names in the family!
Rihanna, Rocky, Rza and more!
According to the birth certificate obtained by TMZ, her second baby boy is named Riot Rose Mayers. Although there is no evidence supporting the name choice of her secondborn, it could have been inspired by her partner, A$AP Rocky, or vice versa. The rapper just recently released a song called “Riot” featuring Pharrell Williams.
Back in July, tthe name of their first son was revealed almost a year after his birth. They named him RZA Altheson Mayers, after the leader of the Wu-Tang rap group, RZA. The couple’s firstborn arrived in the world on May 13, 2022.
In an interview with British Vogue earlier this year, Rihanna shared how much she enjoys motherhood.
“Oh, my God, it’s legendary. It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever,” she gushed. “You literally try to remember it — and there are photos of my life before — but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself mentally to get that far, because…” she continued. “Because it doesn’t matter.”
Rihanna even touched on how having their first baby together really helped grow the bond between her and Rocky.
“We’re best friends with a baby. We have to be on the same page, but we’ve always kind of had that in our relationship,” she explained. “Everything changes when you have a baby, but I wouldn’t say it’s done anything but made us closer.”
Reports came in August 21 that the “Work” singer gave birth to her second child with Rocky. She was said to have given birth on August 1 at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.
