Rick Grimes Jr., nicknamed R.J., is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is the son of Rick Grimes and Michonne, the half-brother of the late Carl Grimes and Andre Anthony and the adoptive brother of Judith Grimes. He resides in Alexandria with his mother and sister.
R.J was conceived shortly before the disappearance of his father and was born 9 months later.
As Magna sneaks around outside of their house with another knife, she opens a back door slightly but sees Michonne pick up and hug R.J., which prompts her to leave.
Later, after Michonne and Judith's conversation, R.J. runs up to Michonne and asks for food, as she picks him up and hugs him once again.
Michonne and R.J. appear to have a loving mother and son relationship. He is first seen running up to her and she picks him up. Their interaction is very loving.
Judith and R.J. have not been seen interacting yet. But it's assumed that they have a loving brother and sister relationship as they live together with Michonne.
Rick is R.J.'s father. He doesn't know of his youngest son's existence as he disappeared before he could find out that Michonne was pregnant. It is currently unknown how R.J. feels about his father or what he's been told about him. R.J. is named after Rick.
