Rihanna welcomed her first child this month according to multiple outlets.
TMZ has reported that Rihanna and A$AP Rocky welcomed their child on May 13th in Los Angeles, but no further details had been provided. The name of the child is also not yet known.
“They have not left each other’s side,” a source told Entertainment Tonight of the new parents. “They are over the moon. She’s been looking forward to motherhood for a long time. This little boy is going to have the best baby fashion.”
Ri and Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, announced in January that they were having a baby, releasing photos of themselves together in Harlem with her baby belly exposed.
The singer and fashion mogule received a lot of publicity during her pregnancy, including a Vogue cover, New York Times pieces and a marble statue at the Met.
It wasn’t a smooth 9 months however as there were rumors that Rocky had cheated with designer Amina Muaddi, a friend of Rihannas.
The rumor had been debunked but then Rocky was arrested in connection to a November 2021 shooting.
Legal drama aside, they looked happy and in love playing lovers in the video for his song “D.M.B.,” which came out a week before the baby was born.
In the Vogue cover story, Rihanna opened up about their romance and the pregnancy, saying “I just feel like I can do any part of life by his side.”
She also told Vogue the pregnancy was not planned.
“Planning? I wouldn’t say planning,” she explained. “But certainly not planning against it. I don’t know when I ovulate or any of that type of s***. We just had fun. And then it was just there on the test. I didn’t waste any time. I called him inside and showed him. Then I was in the doctor’s office the next morning and our journey began.”
Rihanna also said they did no prep at home to ready for the baby, including buying baby clothes or furniture. Their plan was to have their mothers come help them, but she also had a night nurse on hold just in case.
