Lauryn Hill Just Welcomed Her First Grandchild, Because It’s Not 1998 Anymore

Was it just yesterday that I was in ninth grade smuggling a compact disc of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill into my very strict Catholic high school? Just kidding, I wasn’t cool enough to own that album, much less risk smuggling it. But I did watch it happen…

On that classic record, Hill sung passionately about the birth of her first child, Zion Marley. And now, 19 years later, Zion is a father.

Proud granddad Rohan Marley, posted the news to his Instagram account with a photo of Zion holding his newborn son.

JAH RASTAFARI MORNING ” In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.
The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. ” ZEPHANIAH ” ” Unto Us a Child is Born ”

Zion also posted a video of his newborn son to his Instagram account.

Hill hasn’t yet commented publicly.

Congrats to the beautiful family!

WOW. Time needs to slow down a little.


Wow… Lauryn was my inspiration to go natural (waaaaay back before all the NHM hoopla of now came along!). My twists style was based on her two strand stylee. 🙂
