Lauryn Hill’s Son, Zion Marley, Reportedly Welcomes His First Child

Music News

In 1998, Lauryn Hill released “To Zion” in honor of her first-born, Zion Marley, and it looks like her eldest child is now a father himself. Hill’s 19-year-old son and his girlfriend reportedly welcomed a son named, Zephaniah.

Hill hasn’t confirmed the birth, but Zion’s father, Rohan Marley, tweeted a photo of the newborn on Sunday (Feb. 19) along with a Bible verse from Zephaniah 3:16.

“In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack,” Rohan wrote hashtagging the newborn’s name.

Zion also shared a photo of the baby, on his private Instagram account captioned, “If there ever was a question who I do it for…#myson.”
