A$AP Rocky Shares Family Photos in Honor of Son RZA’s 2nd Birthday

Share

A$AP Rocky is a proud papa! The rapper took to Instagram to celebrate his and Rihanna‘s firstborn son RZA’s second birthday on Monday, sharing previously unseen photos of the family of four to ring in the special occasion. 

“HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY 2 MY 1st BORN BABY BOY RZA ❤️” the 35-year-old captioned the carousel of images featuring him, Rihanna, 36, RZA and their second son, Riot. 

The gallery’s first image shows Rihanna holding Riot as Rocky stands to hold RZA upside into the camera. Another photo shows the Oscar-nominated singer holding her boys while lounging on a beach as she smiles into the camera. 

The post includes sweet clips of the family’s everyday life, as seen in a video where Rocky admonishes RZA for stealing his baby brother’s pacifier, prompting the rapper to apologize to the unaware toddler.

The “Umbrella” songstress and her rapper boyfriend first got together in late 2019. After three years together, the pair welcomed their first son, RZA, in 2022. Eager to expand their family, the couple soon after welcomed a baby boy named Riot, in August 2023. For the latter pregnancy, Rihanna debuted her baby bump while performing at the Super Bowl. 

Unsurprisingly, the “Work” singer and the rapper pulled out all the stops for their son’s birthday party at Color Factory in New York City on Saturday. The special bash was attended by close friends and family. Among the guests were producer President Hitkidd and his wife, makeup artist Jasmine B. Cook, known as “Jazzy B,” who shared glimpses of the festivities on their social media accounts.

Rihanna looked radiant in a chic ensemble featuring baggy gray denim pants, a silver strapless silk shirt, and an oversized fuzzy jacket in matching gray hues. Metallic pointed-toe heels, oval-shaped sunglasses, and a statement silver necklace completed her look, exuding her signature fashion-forward style.

Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was equally charming as he proudly carried RZA. He sported jeans, a white T-shirt, and a striped button-down jacket, keeping it casual yet stylish. The rapper added flair to his ensemble with black dress shoes, aviator sunglasses, a gold necklace, and stud earrings.

A source tells ET, “Rihanna and A$AP are great parents together. They have so much fun with their kids and together as a couple. Rihanna adores being a mom and loves parenting with A$AP by her side. They have a good routine with their parenting styles and make sure both children feel loved and cared for. They also bring out the best in each other with their own unique qualities and shared passions in their own relationship. Rihanna would love to expand their family.”

A particular point of pride for the FENTY Beauty founder has been finding inspiration in her kids and having the chance to channel that creative energy into a brand.

Talking with ET at the launch of her FENTY x PUMA Creeper Phatty Earth Tone shoe, the self-made billionaire said that after initially struggling with how she would dress sons Rza and Riot, she looked at an answer right in front of her. 

“When I dress them, I always try to dress them like Rocky,” she told ET. “Because I always envision dressing a girl, right? We all do as women, like, ‘Oh, I’m going to dress her in these cute little things,’ but then you get sons and you’re like, ‘What do I do?’ and I was like, ‘You know what, I have the biggest hack — their dad.'”

Rihanna credits her partnership with Puma as a huge reason that she has felt so inspired to continue moving toward her eventual goal of starting a clothing line for kids. 

“My inspiration for design has been — I’ve gotten the opportunity to start that with Puma, designing kids shoes through the Avantis and now we’re doing the Creepers,” she said. “It’s really fun, it’s cute to see my kids like wear stuff that… I made and designed. It’s really incredible.”

In December, she told ET at a separate Creeper Phatty launch event that the sky is the limit for her and her dreams of having a whole line devoted just to children, even if she was taking it slow by starting with kids’ shoes. 

“This collab for me was being able to invite my entire family into a design and collection that I’ve made,” Rihanna shared. “I got to see my babies in these shoes.”

She added of a potential clothing line, “Yeah, yeah, everything’s to come.”
