When A$AP Rocky rapped “Luxe balm up in my palm / New collab’ with my baby mom” on “RIOT (Rowdy Pipe’n)” back in July, fans didn’t realize that he might have been teasing the name of his second child with Rihanna.

According to The Blast, who claims to have obtained the birth certificate, Rihanna and Rocky’s new baby boy is named Riot Rose Mayers. The name completes the alliteration of the rest of the family’s name: A$AP Rocky (né Rakim Athelaston Mayers), Rihanna (née Robyn Rihanna Fenty), and older brother RZA Athelston Mayers.

Billboard has reached out to Rihanna and A$AP’s rep for comment.

The birth certificate also reportedly confirms that Rocky and Rihanna’s new bundle of joy was born on August 1, 2023 at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California, at 7:41 a.m.

On February 12, 2023, during her headlining Super Bowl LVII halftime show performance, Rihanna revealed her second pregnancy. She confirmed that she was expecting through a British Vogue cover story featuring her family, which was released days after the Super Bowl performance.

Naturally, the news of the baby’s name has elicited a wide range of reactions from fans. “Riot Rose is a superior name and only Rihanna could think of some s–t like that. You mfs could never,” tweeted one user. “Riot Rose is a superstar name,” said another. Of course, not everyone is on the Riot Riose train yet. “Were they both high or something?” asked one X user. Another dismayed fan tweeted, “Riot Rose Mayers… oh A$AP you will be dealt with.”
