Lauryn Hill has become a grandmother for the first time at the age of 41. The child is the great-grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley.
Hill’s 19-year-old son, Zion – the eldest of five children she had with Rohan Marley, the son of the late Bob – welcomed in the new addition to the family with the birth of Zephaniah on 19th February.
Rohan posted a picture of his grandchild on his Twitter, writing “In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack. JAH BLESSINGS ‘WE GIVE THANKS FOR LIFE Welcome to Earth Little ZEPHANIAH NESTA.”
Hill famously penned a song for her son when he was born in 1998. ‘To Zion’, which featured Carlos Santana, was listed on the musician’s acclaimed debut album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’.
