Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents!
TMZ reports that the couple have welcomed their baby boy into the world. While baby Ri's name isn't known to the public yet, TMZ shared that he was born on May 13 in Los Angeles. Knowing Rihanna, she's probably planning something special — and stylish — to reveal her son's name in the near future.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky first announced that they were expecting back in January 2022, when the singer-songwriter's pregnant belly was documented by celebrity photographer Miles Diggs. In the photos, she was seen wearing a pink puffer jacket opened up to reveal her stomach, decorated with colorful, layered necklaces. A$AP Rocky's hands were in the shot as well, holding Rihanna from behind.
Since her initial announcement, Rihanna has found an array of red carpet-worthy ways to show off her pregnant body, from wearing diamond chains over her stomach to donning shirts with aptly placed cutouts. Her maternity style has continued to be off the charts, and she's incorporated her growing belly into so many gorgeous looks.
Throughout her pregnancy, Rihanna has also been open about her excitements and fears regarding motherhood, telling Vogue that she worries about postpartum depression. "Will I feel out of control emotionally?" she said. "Those are the stories I hear from other women that scare me."
In that interview, she also talked about being excited for the bond that lies ahead for her and her child, explaining, "They’re going to teach me more than I could ever teach them. And I want them to go for it. I want to see who they are in the world, who they become. Because I’m just here to keep them on the rails—a passenger as much as the driver."
Congrats to the new parents!
