Rick Ross Named His Son ‘Billion’, And 20 Other Amazing Celebrity Baby Names
The hip-hop heavyweight joins the ranks of the greatest celebrity baby names with this baller move. Check out the rest of the best here.
In case you haven’t noticed, celebrities tend to give their children some really interesting names, and the current champ is the newborn son of Rick Ross and his girlfriend Briana Camille: Billion.
Announcing the birth of his son, he tweeted:
Let’s all welcome my son ‘Billion Leonard Roberts’ to the world 🌍… 🙏🏽

Here’s my theory about the name: Rick Ross’ actual name is William Leonard Roberts II, and he already has a son named William III. So, by naming his second son Billion, he’s kinda sorta rhyming the names, while adding an, um, affluent touch.
Plus, the Miami rapper just really, really likes the word “billion”: two of his songs are “Billionaire” and “Hood Billionaire”, after all.
