Over the weekend Zion David Marley posted pictures of the child on Instagram and Rohan Marley later confirmed the news. The 19-year-old grandson of 'King of Reggae' Bob Marley and his girlfriend welcomed their son, Zephaniah.

Rohan shared a photo of Zion with the latest addition to the Marley family on his social media page. In the caption, he cited the Bible verse Zephaniah 3:16 - "In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack ... Unto Us a Child is Born."


Zion was the subject of one of Hill's many hit songs on her debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

In the song, To Zion, Hill talks about her decision to have her first child, although many urged her to have an abortion as to not conflict with her blossoming career.
