Ziggy Marley and family attended the 1st Annual T.J. Martell Family Day held at The Los Angeles Zoo on March 29, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. Ziggy is pictured with his wife Orly and their children three-year-old daughter Judah and baby Gideon,2.

 Ziggy is set to release a children’s album in May and he says his two youngest inspired him to make the album: “Growing up music was an important part of my childhood,” Marley says. “I see it being just as important in my children and all children’s growth and development. Music helps children to grow with open minds and open hearts and this is my message. This record represents my daily family life and is inspired by my three-year-old daughter Judah and baby Gideon. It was a joy to make and opened up new avenues in my creativity. Family Time is for all families and especially the world family.”

In all, Ziggy has five children.

  1. WHAT THE…… I thought Rastas were suppose to Black Nationalists why is he with a white woman are you kidding me?

  2. Who cares about whos what colour or nationality or whatever! They look happy and have a beautiful family!!!!! I’m white and my partner is Black (Rasta), SO WHAT???? Get a life and go find something better to moan about!

    No wonder mixed race kids are turning against Black and white people!

    • thats true I’m black and my QUeen is Black…but i dont look at color…she is my EMPRESS..ONLY she can birth the Black man…Peace & love!

  3. Being that Orly is running his career/business affairs and spit out two children, I hope she takes him for everything he’s got. You can’t even count on Rastas having love for Black women. The he11 with them!

    and also a singer my self i hope to make album records with the marley’s in fucture:) well hope all is good with the family god bless and JAH LIVE….rasta

  5. Amen Alli, thank you for putting everything into prospective!

    To all those who believe you should find love in your own race and your own race only there is a good chance you yourself will never find your soul mate!

    Also, Bob’s father was a Welshman serving in the British army!

  6. YOu people ar ridiculous. IMA BLACK WOMAN and i can say they are beautiful..HEW HAS THREE BLACKS KIDS from BEFORE FYI…….and also all u ignorant people the majority of black men are with black women, u people need to stop watching tv…and who cares who he dates…he’s proud of his blackness, and HE HAS DATED BLACK WOMEN BEFORE!!!..So like all Rastas he does respect the black Queen, he just found love in a White oNe.:)..

  7. @ONE LOVE, you’re correct it’s a tweleve tribe name and so is ziggy “said religion” of rasta, all rasta doesn’t have the same belief/doctrine, they ‘are many beliefs a few example,nyabingi beief races shouldn’t mix,ortodox believe theyshould worship in church setting mix with christianty judaism and afrocisim,then they are the unortodox alsO

    THIS may surprise many folks..ALL RASTA DOESNT GROW\STYLE THEIR HAIR IN LOX FORM, YOU WILL SEE THEM WITH COMBED BUT UNCUT HAIR AND BEARD..AND THAT,S JUST AFEW….SO ZIGGY IS TWELEVE TRIBE THAT IS THE REASON IS FAMILY IS OF ANOTHER RACE (THEIR BELIEF THAT THEY SHOULD BE MIXING OF RACES. RASTA STARTED OUT HAS A TEACHING OF MARCUS GARVEY WHICH WAS KNOW YOUR PAST HISTORY, STAY TO YOURSELF AND EVOLVE DURING THE 60′S INTO RESEACH OF AFRICA…AND MORE

  8. @Truth…Bless up for speaking Truth!

    Yes, Rastafarianism initially was a movement for BLACK AWARENESS, BLACK INITY, BLACK LOVE and BLACK LIBERATION! Rastararianism is not BOB MARLEY! This movement mobilized way before Bob accepted the rasta consciousness which happened in his early 20′s…

    Check up on Leonard Howell…the FIRST RASTA! his philosophy was to confront colonialism and expose the wretched conditions of black people created by slave history. He encouraged black awareness of self! Marcus Garvey furthered this movement with the notion to go back to AFRICA.

    Rastafarianism was about Black empowerment! but that did not mean to “hate” white folks. No, it was to destroy colonialism or any oppressor that perpetuated slavery or the demise of black consciousness. Rasta’s speak of love and understanding and that was the route that Bob Marley took with his music although he was very outspoken about black inity as well as his feelings towards white superiority! Not just white folks, but WHITE SUPREMACY! Yes his father was white… BUT HE HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS UPBRINGING!!! I always find it interesting that there is such a focus on the fact that his father was white. The man did not want to be in his life, so please stop talking about his white father as if he was really a FATHER!!

    As a black Haitian who Embrace rastafariansim, i think its a beautiful thing that this movement has grown as much as it has… Its a global movement! people of all nationalities and races have accepted this lifestyle because they understand that at the root of it its about disseminating BABYLON! POWER STRUCTURE! INJUSTICE! NOTIONS OF RACE! and embracing THE HUMAN RACE AS ONE!

    HOWEVER…there had to be a however ;-) … I find it interesting that the Marley brothers seem to only choose “white” women as the mother of their children(if indeed its a fact). it is not that they perhaps date women of all races, but they seem to systematically keep the black sista out of the picture… and its a group effort! LOL…This is a pattern that says something about what they think is beautiful and what they really think about Black Beauty.. Especially if its true of what is said about ziggy disrespecting black women. How can you preach love about it but dismiss it??? But hey… to each his own right? remember they were not raised with the type of struggle and the era of black consciousness that their father grew up in… but even he loved the taste of Babylonian women when they became easily available to him.

    yuh raise n feed inna de babylonian [curse omitted], yuh becum it!

    Peter Tosh wouldn’t deal wit dis [curse omitted]of ignorance!! Rasta & revolutionary to de bloodclat core!!!

    Thank goodness for Rohan! Miss Hill was not playing…LOL

  9. He has five chldren and I wonder why I am always seeing him with these two? The Marleys are known to have kids from many different races, however the women who they marry are white, indian etc. I love Damian’s music but I heard he is disrespectful to black women. This is what I don’t understand how can u love African culture, traditions but not women of African descent???

    • Hey Alicia. I love Damian’s music too. Can you give me an example of when he disrespected black women?

  10. Some of these comments make me laugh!!! First of all Rastafari was created way before Bob Marley was alive, and it is about black empowerment and a belief about the return to Africa. Second Ziggy’s wife is Israeli(jew not arab) which does not surprise me since the rastafari religion is a mixture of Judaism and Christianity. Thirdly, Bob Marley’s father was a white Englishman and if you do the research the Marley name has origins from the Jews in Syria. And lastly thousands of Jamaicans have jewish blood you can check out the history easily on the web, jamaica has an abundance of Levy’s, Goldings, Stern’s, Goldsmiths, Matalon’s, Cohen’s etc…

  11. 1) as a jamaican i can tell you that rastafarianism was created decades before bob marley was born. also, its creation was ALL about resistance to the white colonizers/former enslavers, and ALL about connecting with our african roots. i find it shocking that a real rasta is married to a white woman.

    2) yes, she is white. jewish.

    3) bob marley has a white father, but bob was raised by his black mother. bob referred to himself as a black man. in his songs he even insulted white people at times. don’t you know who he means when he says “chase those crazy baldheads outta town”? no,not all people without locks. he meant the white colonizers, enslavers and missionaries. hevolutionary music. he sang so many songs about black liberation.

    if you are not from jamaica, please educate yourself before making statements about aspects of our history. if yuh from yard an’ yuh no know bout rasta, learn yuh history! of course the majority of jamaicans are not rasta, but it was something created in our country. all jamaicans should know about the background.

  12. BOB MARLEY did not make rasta…..rasta is for every one, unity, but it wa smade by blacks so mayb thats why the girl made that comment…and it is about black love , as well as love of all races stupdi

  13. the only one doing the hateing seems to be you “black” most people fall in love with the person not the skin colour! you should try it sometime then you might not be so miserable,also you don’t know that his wife is poor just becouse she not covered in bling don’t make her poor rasta’s don’t beleive in materal things. You should never judge a book by it’s cover all that hatred made you bitter and thick!!!!!

  14. WOW IT SEEM BLACK MANS MAIN OBJECTIVE IS TO FIND ANYTHING OTHER THAN BLACK SKIN. HOW CAN ONE RACE HATE THEIR SKIN SO MUCH. ALL BLACK MAN SEEM TO WANT TO DO IS TO MATE OUTSIDE THEIR RACE. IS THIS INFERIOR THINKING THAT THEY SEE IN THE MEDIA THAT IS BURIED IN DEEP SELF HATE BY BLACK MEN. WHY RICH BLACK MEN SEEM TO ALWAYS WANT TO FIND A WOMAN OF ANOTHER RACE TO MARRY. AND THEIR WOMEN ARE ALWAYS POOR. ONLY RICH BLACK MEN SEEM TO LOVE TO PICK UP BOTTOM OF THE BARREL WOMEN OF ANOTHER RACE TO MARRY. SAD DEEP SELF HATE.

  15. Giving Special Thanks, For all the Love, Happiness and Enlightenment, that Ziggy and the Marley Family has been Sharing with this whole Planet. The picture to me, is Kosmic. Smile. I love you my family.

  16. @ Tina, I am not American. I’m Grenadian but I asked that question because the Rastafarians I meet are all for black love and going back to their roots and stuff (think Marcus Garvey). Although Bob Marley is linked to Rastafarianism there is more to the movement than HIM, so I ent know why de hell u getting on so, who pull u tail?

    • exactly the movement was before bob marley was even born..but i love born and we know he’s biracial.. he recognized he was biracial but choose to identify as a black african…..ex: black survival…he even spoke in interviews saying “the white man”….but whatever he was raised by a black woman so of course dats how he grew to see himself a mixed man,who was black conscious…and no people i am not american born Jamaican!

  17. Tina.. Why do you think all of these comments are from Americans? I am american and know quite a few rastafarians who are as well. Anyway, the children are beautiful and I would like to see pictures of his other children as well.

  18. @ Xamaica, thanks fot that I was just a bit confused.
    @ Aimee I’m sure alot of people know that he is bi-racial, but what is your point?

  19. Isn’t Judah one of the 12 tribes of ancient Israel? Maybe that’s what the child’s name is based on, I don’t know.

    • Yes,Judah was one of the 12 tribes(of Isreal)however it means “praise” Isreal= Jacob,Jacob who had 12 sons and each tribe was named for each of them.

  20. First of all if you people knew anything about the Marley’s you would know that Bob Marley was bi-racial …his dad was a white british man

  21. @ Blue -I was thinking the same thing about the name ‘Judah’(wonder what it means). And her outfit + the Uggs is adorable! Both kids are cuties.

  22. She looks Middle Eastern to me maybe Italian, but beautiful family.

    Ohh and Orly manages his career and record label

  23. NOOOOOOOOOOO!GRENDAGAL (ALL) “RASTA” ISNT FOR BLACK LOVE, EX.ZIGGY RASTA BELIEF IS GROUNDED IN A TWELEVE TRIBE DOCTRINE…WHICH BY THE PICTURE ABOVE TELLS THE STORY, I’M SUPRISE HE’S SPEAKING CORRECT ENGLISH NOW!!!

  24. May sound ignorant but I thought Rastafarians were all for ‘black love’ maybe the views have changed, however cutee family!! i love d Marleys

    • Bob Marley once emphasized that he doesn’t see color mainly because is mother is black and his father was white. So, if Ziggy’s grandfather is a white man, why should it matter to him who he dates?

  25. CUTE KIDS,I would have thought Ziggy’s wife would be sort of hippie-like.. she looks very conservative…but opposite attracts tho…
