After announcing her second pregnancy during the Super Bowl halftime show last February, Rihanna flooded the Web with photos of her rounded belly. Then, last August, the singer and her companion A$AP Rocky welcomed a second boy, just over a year after the first. While little information has circulated about this arrival, the American media “The Blast” revealed this Thursday, September 7, the child’s first name.
An original choice
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky seem to like original names starting with the letter R. They named their first son RZA, in homage to the leader of the group Wu-Tang Clan. For their second child, the couple was inspired by a song by A$AP Rocky released this summer in duet with Pharrell Williams: “Riot”. So the baby is named Riot Rose Mayers.
“The Blast”, which had access to the birth certificate of Rihanna’s youngest son, also revealed that he was born on August 1 at 7:41 a.m., at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, and not on August 3 as usual. “TMZ” had communicated.
