Lauryn Hill Is a First-Time Grandmother, Her Son Zion Is a Father [PHOTO]
Lauryn Hill’s oldest son is all grown up and is now a father. Zion Marley has made Ms. Hill a grandmother with the birth of his son, Zephaniah Nesta. Zion’s father, Rohan Marley, went on Twitter to share the good news with his followers on Sunday (Feb. 19).
"JAH BLESSINGS," he tweeted along with a picture of himself holding the beautiful infant. "WE GIVE THANKS FOR LIFE. Welcome to Earth Little ZEPHANIAH NESTA."
Rohan, who is the son of late Jamaican reggae singer Bob Marley, also posted a photo of Zion holding the newborn along with a Bible verse from Zephaniah 3:16, which may be the inspiration for the baby's name. "In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack," he wrote.
Lauryn Hill has yet to comment on the birth or becoming a grandmother at the age of 41. The identification of the baby's mother is unknown as well.
Hill and Rohan have five other children together; Zion is the oldest along with sister Selah, younger sister Sarah, as well as brothers John and Joshua. Hill has another son called Micah from another relationship.
Congratulations to Zion, Rohan and Ms. Hill on their new addition to the family.
