Recording Artist Lauryn Hill‘s record-setting Grammy Award Winning album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” had a song called “To Zion” dedicate to her baby boy and now, 19 years later, that little boy is a brand new dad.
The Bob Marley descendant and his girlfriend welcomed a son over the weekend.
Zion’s dad, Rohan Marley, announced the birth of his grandson’s arrival on Instagram and shared his name.
“JAH BLESSINGS,” he wrote alongside a picture of himself holding the infant. “WE GIVE THANKS FOR LIFE. Welcome to Earth Little ZEPHANIAH NESTA.”

Rohan, the son of late Jamaican reggae singer Bob Marley, also posted a photo of the newborn along with a Bible verse from Zephaniah 3:16, which is reportedly 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,” Rohan noted.
According to Vibe magazine, 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.”
Zion’s half brother, Nico Marley, shared a photo of Zion holding his son shortly after he was born. Later, Zion, himself later shared a photo of Zephaniah’s mom to respond to reports of people asking who she was.
According to his social media, Zion is in the music business himself though there are reports that he is also in college.
Congrats all! A new Marley is Born. The legacy continues.
