Zion was born in August 1997, making him Lauryn and Rohan’s eldest son. Zion gave birth to his first kid, a son called Zephaniah, in February 2017. His father verified the news on Twitter, posting a photo of his son and grandchild with a Bible quote.
“Fear not, Jerusalem,” Rohan wrote, “and let not thine hands be slack.” The song “To Zion,” from Lauryn Hill’s famous album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, was written in 1998 as a tribute to her eldest son.
Selah was born in November 1998, making her Lauryn and Rohan’s second oldest child. She, like her mother, works in the arts as a vocalist and fashion model. She’s modeled for Dior, Tommy Hilfiger, and even Beyoncé’s Ivy Park, as well as being featured in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.
On August 13, Selah released her first EP, Star Power. Star Power has received a positive response despite the fact that she only has four songs on her album, proving that she is her mother’s daughter.
Joshua was born in January 2002, making him Lauryn and Rohan’s middle child. The teen looks to have followed in the footsteps of his mother and siblings as an artist. Some of his tracks, such as “BALLIN” and “Game,” are available on his SoundCloud account. His Instagram account is a flex as well. He frequently posts photos of his mother. In one photo, the couple is seen with Kanye West.
John was Lauryn and Rohan’s youngest child, born in 2003. The adolescent has made a few appearances on his parents’ Instagram feed. “One thing about John Marley, you don’t need to tell him twice,” the Marley dad wrote in a post shared by Rohan.
According to his Instagram account, the young Marley is a huge fan of his suits. John is known for posting images of himself in fashionable clothing. Perhaps you’ll follow in the footsteps of your sister Selah and pursue a modeling career.
Sara was born in 2008, making her Lauryn and Rohan’s youngest child. The little adolescent appears to be following in the footsteps of her famous mother as a singer. Sara Marley Music, a dedicated artist Instagram account, features her performances.
Sara’s fondness for the TV shows The Vampire Diaries and Grey’s Anatomy was revealed when Lauryn posted a 13th birthday tribute to her daughter on Instagram in January, providing insights into her personality and revealing Sara’s love for the shows The Vampire Diaries and Grey’s Anatomy.

Micah, Lauryn’s sixth child, was born in July 2011. Her youngest child’s identity, as well as his father’s, remains unknown. Lauryn posted a note on her official website shortly after his birth, claiming that people were drawing the “wrong conclusions” about her relationship with Rohan and implying that he wasn’t the father of her baby boy.
“Over the years, we have had long times of separation, but our five children together remain a delight to both of us,” she wrote. “I appreciate all of the well wishes over the birth of my baby son, and I thank you for your concern.” Rohan seemed to corroborate the news as well, tweeting his congratulations to Lauryn on the “birth of her beautiful kid.”
