| LAST UPDATE 02/02/2022
Our girl RiRi has some major news for us! The Love on the Brain singer seems to have had a great deal of love on her mind lately - she and boyfriend A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together! The soon-to-be parents were recently spotted out in NYC, and Rihanna's baby bump was unmistakable. Here's what we know.
On January 31, the pair were snapped in Harlem, and fans instantly began congratulating the Fenty goddess on her pregnancy. In the photos, the singer appears to be wearing a long pink jacket - buttoned only at the top, exposing her baby bump, which was decorated with a gold cross and colorful jewelry. Right by her side was her beau, rapper A$AP Rocky, who has been in a relationship with the Fenty queen for a little over a year. The pair officially began dating in November 2020, following years of friendship. And apparently, starting a family has been on this couple's radar for quite a while...
In an interview with GQ back in May, the 33-year-old rapper discussed his relationship with Rihanna, describing his now baby mama as "the love of [his] life." He also shared that it felt "so much better" to be in a relationship with her. "So much better when you got 'the One.' She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones. I think when you know, you know. She's the One," he explained. At the time, Rocky also shared his plans to someday become a father, saying he believes it is "in [his] destiny" to have a family. "I think I'd be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very." We're totally with him on this!
Soon-to-be mama Rihanna has also previously shared her thoughts on starting a family. In May 2020, she told British Vogue that she thinks she will have "3 or 4" children, regardless of whether or not she is in a relationship. "I feel like society makes me want to feel like, 'Oh, you got it wrong …' They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives," she shared. "But the only thing that matters is happiness; that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love." Fans are definitely psyched about this couple's latest news, and can't wait to find out what else they will reveal in the coming months. Keep us posted, RiRi!
