The unique name of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky's second child has been revealed.
Rihanna shared she was pregnant with the pair's second baby while performing at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona for the Super Bowl Halftime show, opening her jacket and stroking her stomach onstage - a representative for the star later confirming the news.
The couple announced the arrival of their second child in August earlier this year.
The 'We Found Love' singer and 'Praise the Lord' rapper's name choice for their newborn has since been revealed by The Blast, the outlet obtaining a copy of the child's birth certificate.
Rihanna and Rocky already share one-year-old RZA Athelston Mayers, born in May 2022.
Their first son was named after legendary leader of hip hop group the Wu-Tang Clan RZA (Robert Fitzgerald Diggs).
And their second child's name appears to follow in RZA's footsteps.
According to the birth certificate obtained by The Blast, the name of Rihanna and Rocky's second child also begins with an 'R'.
The full name of their son is stated as: Riot Rose Mayers.
It's been speculated whether the name was inspired by Rocky's second single from his upcoming fourth studio album Don't Be Dumb, 'Riot (Rowdy Pipe'n)' - the song released on 20 July, 2023.
As per the document, Riot is reported as being born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on 1 August, 2023 at 7.41am.
As well as channeling a bit of Kris Jenner in their children having names beginning with the same letter, the birth certificate shows the similarities with the Kardashians don't end there.
During her second pregnancy, Rihanna was under obstetrician-gynecologist Thais Aliabadi.
Dr Aliabadi appeared on Keeping Up With The Kardashians during her time helping deliver both Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner's babies.
Khloe praised Dr Aliabadi on social media as being 'kind, attentive' and 'compassionate,' adding she's 'never met anyone in the medical field who treats their patients' in the way she does.
Shortly after the birth of Riot, sources told Entertainment Tonight the pair would be spending the 'early days of parenthood out of the public eye,' not making 'any immediate plans to debut the new baby'.
Another source added: "Rihanna and A$AP are great right now. They’re so excited to grow their family and are so united when it comes to parenting.
"They have so much fun together and are very in love. They already shared a special connection and parenting together has made their bond even stronger."
