The girlfriend of Hill’s 19-year-old son Zion Marley apparently welcomed a baby boy over the weekend, with the child thought to have been named Zephaniah.While the former Fugees star has not commented on the news, Zion’s father, Rohan Marley, announced his grandson’s arrival on Instagram.
“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 wrote.
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.”
