Congrats are in order for Rihanna and A$AP Rocky! The couple welcomed a baby boy in Los Angeles, reports TMZ. According to the site, “sources with direct knowledge” confirm that the little one was born on Friday, May 13. A name is not known at this time.
The pregnancy was first revealed at the end of January 2022, when the “Diamonds” singer and her boyfriend were photographed together in New York City with a visibly pregnant Rihanna wearing an archival Chanel jacket mostly unbuttoned to show off her baby bump. What followed was a nonstop parade of maternity looks and fashion moments from the first-time mother that is sure to be a cultural moment we’ll remember for years. Now other celebrities have started embracing the belly-on-display look that Rihanna popularized.
Since she kept the beginning of her pregnancy a secret, the timeline of when she was due couldn’t be confirmed, but it seems safe to say that Robin Rihanna Fenty was several months along when she first debuted her pregnancy in public.
Now Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents, and this is their first child together. After spending a decade as friends, the pair took their relationship to the next level in 2020 as they were spotted together in public more and more, though they didn’t officially confirm their status until 2021. Born Rakim Athelaston Mayers, the rapper has stated multiple times in interviews that the Fenty Beauty founder is the “love of his life.”
