You’ll Never Guess Whose Cute Kid This Is…

July 23, 2014 ‐ By


Lauryn Hill's son and Rohan


This young man is Zion Marley, Lauryn Hill’s son with Rohan Marley. If you’ll recall, on her iconic album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, L-Boogie wrote a song for her first-born called “To Zion.” In it, she talked about the worries she had and the pressure put on her by industry folks when she became pregnant, and the joy she felt after Zion came into the world. Hill also said that her pregnancy helped her come out of writer’s block, so we have Zion to thank for that classic album! But that was back in 1998 (the year the album was released). Zion Marley is now 16 (and will turn 17 next month) and looks exactly like his father and his grandfather, Bob Marley. Zion recently traveled to Brazil with his father for the World Cup, and Rohan shared those images on his social media. You can check those out, as well as more images of Lauryn’s oldest child, below and on the next page.

      No MN did bad fact checking or typo to the date. He was born 1997 (i was a huge fan the year I graduated hs)…the album came out 1998. He is 17 gong on 18 I think in August/September.
