Katniss and Peeta Mellark's Son is the second child of Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark. He also has an older sister, who is younger in the film adaption.


Katniss's pregnancy with her son was easier than her daughter's. He has Peeta's blonde hair and Katniss' grey eyes of the Seam. He is a toddler during the epilogue and seems to be at least a few years younger than his sister. The epilogue also states that he has chubby legs. However,r in the film, he is around 2-3 years old, and has curly blond hair while also being a few years older than his sister.


  • In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, he was portrayed by Jennifer Lawrence's nephew, Bear Lawrence.[1][2]
  • His rumored name is Rye Mellark, though the child's name was never stated in the Mockingjay epilogue nor was it confirmed by the author herself. There is no citation for Katniss and Peeta's son's name. The only " evidence " is a girl named Jess claiming Suzanne Collins replied to her tweet. It's unknown if the person responding was Collins or if tweet even existed. Since his father was a baker it is a reasonable name though, rye is a cereal plant that is used in baking so if his father baked with it and enjoyed backing with or that his son reminded him of rye he could have named him simply Rye. The name is also reasonable since many characters in the series are named after plants.
