In a recent series of pictures, Rihanna’s sons RZA and Riot made a rare Instagram appearance — and you won’t believe how similar they look to their superstar mom.

“Twin, where have you been?”

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are going all out to celebrate their son RZA’s second birthday, and they are letting us all in on the fun, sharing some super rare pictures of their family life.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, who welcomed baby RZA in 2022 and baby Riot in 2023, have kept a low profile when it comes to their parenting, only giving us glimpses of their children here and there, but things are starting to change.

On Monday, May 13, A$AP Rocky took to his Instagram to post a birthday tribute to RZA rife with pictures of the family of four spending time together, and we can’t help but notice that the two boys look like Rihanna’ twins. (She is their mom, after all!)

“HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY 2 MY 1st BORN BABY BOY RZA ❤️,” Rocky captioned his post, which included multiple snaps of the fam. In one particular slide, Rihanna is seen enjoying some time off with her two babies on a beach, and the resemblance is uncanny — especially if you’ve ever seen childhood pictures of the star. From the noses to the face shapes, both RZA and Riot are the spitting image of their mother.

While Rihanna herself has not publicly posted a birthday tribute to RZA, we do know the celebrations did not stop with Rocky’s post. Over the weekend, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky reportedly rented out the Color Factory in New York to throw RZA a birthday party with custom decorations galore, including cutouts of his face and “RZA’s Pizza” boxes.

Producer President Hitkidd and his wife, makeup artist Jasmine B. Cook, were present at the event, and both shared pictures of both the venue and the family posing for photos on their accounts. We thought RZA had already reached peak coolness with his first word, but this party might take the cake.
