Lauryn Hills Is Now a Grandmother!

It has now been nearly 20 years since singer Lauryn Hill first penned her beautiful hit song ‘To Zion’ for her eldest son on her first and only critically acclaimed debut album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
However, she may now have another reason to sing. Her first born has just had his first child.
According to Zion’s father, Rohan Marley, one of the son’s of Bob Marley, Zion’s baby boy Zephaniah was born just last week. Quoting the book from the Bible, Zephaniah 3:16, the verse was used on Marley’s Twitter account to confirm the news of his grandson.
“In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fear thou not: and to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack,” read the tweet, adding, “JAH BLESSINGS ‘WE GIVE THANKS FOR LIFE Welcome to Earth Little ZEPHANIAH NESTA.”
Zion is Hill’s eldest of her and Marley’s five children. The other four are Sarah, Selah, John and Joshua.
