Iconic singer Ziggy Marley's son Abraham Selassie recently turned ten, and the proud father took to his Instagram page to commemorate the special day with some beautiful family photos.
Ziggy Marley loves his kids, and he does not shy away from expressing it — either through words or actions. Over the years, he has proven how doting a father he can be when it comes to his kids.
On Tuesday, January 26, Ziggy could not hold back his joy as he took to his Instagram page to celebrate his son Abraham's tenth birthday.
The proud father shared a montage of pictures that captured himself, his wife, and the celebrant through the first decade of his life. The most striking thing about the photos is the uncanny resemblance between the father and son.
Ziggy started the birthday post with a recent picture of Abraham, where he could be seen wearing a blue suit with his hair neatly packed in braids. He wrote in the caption:
"we are celebrating Abraham today now a decade since he was born."
Ziggy's birthday tribute to his son quickly racked up thousands of likes and several comments from his followers who joined him in celebrating the little prince.
The Grammy Award-winning singer and his wife of many years, Orly Agai Marley, welcomed Abraham on January 26, 2011, in Los Angeles.
The father of seven released another children's album titled "More Family Time," where he shares some of his experiences as a father.
Ziggy, who is the oldest son of legendary reggae singer Bob Marley, welcomed his fourth child with his wife, son Isaiah Sion Robert Nesta Marley, on March 14, 2016.
The singer paid tribute to his late father in naming his son, with Isaiah's last three monikers the same as the full name of the late music legend who died at age 36 of cancer.
Ziggy also shares two other children — daughter Judah Victoria and son Gideon Robert Nesta — with his wife, Agai. He has also fathered three children, Zuri, Justice, and Daniel "Bambaata" Marley, from a previous relationship.
The five-time Grammy winner is a perfect example of a doting father, and in 2013, he translated his passion for kids into a children's book titled "I Love You Too."
Ziggy's book is illustrated by Agnieszka Jatkowska and is based on the song of the same title from the reggae icon's acclaimed 2009 Grammy Award-winning children's album "Family Time."
In 2020, the father-of-seven released another children's album titled "More Family Time," where he shares some of his experiences as a father.
For most people, seven children are way out of their alley. However, Ziggy has made it look so natural, and with his love for children, there is no telling if the couple would pass up a chance to further expand their brood.
