Looks like Mother's Day turned into a celebration for Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, but it was instead dedicated to their older son RZA, who turned two years old last week.

The toddler received an extravagant birthday bash from his famous parents at none other than the Color Factory in NYC, a celeb-loved art museum featuring a host of interactive exhibits and extremely family-friendly.

They were joined by several friends and family members, and none other than their younger son Riot Rose, who will turn one this August, and was just as much the star of the show as his older brother.

Rihanna was dressed in a gray fur coat with a matching metallic top and wide-legged jeans, while A$AP opted for a striped button down left open except for the top button, a white tank, and blue jeans.

The brothers were dressed in white tees with RZA getting a denim jacket and brown pants, while Riot wore ripped jeans (plus they, of course, had baby sneakers on) and sat in his mom's lap.

Several photos and videos were shared on social media by attendees at the party, including friends from the music industry and family members, plus Color Factor's official social media account.

Parts of the museum had been customized for RZA, including a falling sprinkle bench that had been renamed "RZA Way," and cards with his face on them were made for guests to carry around to the sprinkle pool.

Another video captured from the celebration saw the group singing happy birthday to the toddler as his mom playfully held him upside down while the group sang, bringing him back up to cuddle with him.

Riot Rose was on hand to celebrate his big brother as well

The appearance marked a double celebration for the "We Found Love" singer, who marked Mother's Day with her two adorable sons. She and A$AP were meant to make an appearance at the Met Gala last Monday after promising a more "simple" look this year, but they ended up skipping this year's Gala after Rihanna reportedly contracted the flu.
