Rihanna flashed a beautiful sweet smile as she arrived at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Friday.
The 35-year-old superstar singer was joined on the trip by partner A$AP Rocky, 34, as well as her mother Monica Braithwaite, although it’s unclear if her first child – which DailyMail.com revealed in exclusive was called RZA — joined the group.
The trio were able to avoid the hustle and bustle of the regular airport, as they arrived at The Private Suites, the luxurious and exclusive terminal directly across from LAX that caters to wealthy travelers who want privacy and perks.
Rihanna was dressed for comfort before her flight with a mostly black grungy ensemble.
She hid her burgeoning baby bump by draping a loose black jacket with embroidered designs over her shoulders, and she also appeared to have a blue sweatshirt tied around her torso underneath.

She completed the jacket with a matching pair of black embroidered pants, and kept it cozy with textured black and white sneakers.
The Umbrella singer accessorized with a chunky black handbag over her arm, and she blocked the piercing light with a set of slim cat-eye sunglasses with playful star patterns on the temples .
She kept her hair as casual as her outfit by pulling it into a puffy bun.
Unlike his love, Rocky (born Rakim Mayers) masked up when arriving in the private suites.
He wore his hair in pigtails and he wore what looked like a green and blue varsity letter style jacket.
Rihanna’s mom, Monica, also kept it simple with a pale seafoam hoodie and matching pants, along with skinny sunglasses.
It’s unclear where the family was headed, but Rihanna was seen stepping out near the billboards for airlines flying to Mexico.
Regardless of where she was going, she didn’t seem to believe in packing lightly.

The Work singer and her entourage brought so much luggage for the flight that they had to have a separate minivan to transport everything to the airport.
Rihanna generally keeps her relationship with her mother, an accountant, under the radar.
Last year, while pregnant with her first child, Rihanna shared a sweet Instagram post honoring her mother on her birthday, in which she opened up about the new “respect” she had for the woman who raised her.
‘Being on the verge of becoming a mother has unlocked new levels of love and respect that I have for my mum in ways I could never explain! She’s the real MVP and I want to give her flowers every second I can! I love you momzzzz!!!’ she wrote with adoration.
Monica was married to Rihanna’s father, Ronald Fenty, but the couple divorced in 2002 when she was 14.
The hitmaker’s casual attire on Friday was a far cry from the “quiet luxury” she displayed in a TikTok video from earlier this week.
She started off by showing off a set of black peep toe heels with jeweled straps around her ankles.
But after strutting around spectacularly, she lowered the camera to reveal she was wearing a huge teardrop diamond ring on one of her toes.

The singer also recently received a strong show of protective love from her boyfriend A$AP Rocky.
The rapper was seen in a video shared by a Rihanna fan account during a recent club outing for the two.
After a fight broke out between several men not far from where the couple were having fun, Rocky yelled at them to “act like gentlemen right now” because “I have my wife here.”
He and Rihanna have been together since 2020, and he is the father of RZA and their future baby. The lovebirds were friends and collaborators for years before they started dating.
