It’s official: Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s newborn may be the most mysterious baby in Hollywood. And that’s about all that’s official. Since the birth of their second child in August, reports have been mixed.
ICYMI: At first, sources said Media to go that the “Umbrella” singer had given birth to a “beautiful” daughter and that the two were recovering well. “She’s a perfect spitting image of Rihanna, even with her light eyes,” a source shared.
Few weeks later, TMZ reported that RiRi actually gave birth to a baby boy, by “sources with direct knowledge”. “We don’t know the child’s name yet, but we do know that it starts with an ‘R’ and that it is a boy,” they said.
So… did the couple have a daughter who takes after her mother or a son who has the same initial?
At the beginning of September, The explosion reported that they obtained the baby’s birth certificate showing that Rihanna welcomed a baby boy named Riot Rose Mayers on August 1 in Los Angeles. Riot pink! Is it sweet? Little Riot joins his big brother RZA Athelston, 15 months.
Now, almost two months after Riot Rose’s birth, fans are seeing the first photos of the baby. And once again, they wonder if they understood correctly. In the stunning photos from a family photo session in the garden, the proud parents of two pose and play with their children. And there is a detail of this refreshing and relaxed collection (see photos HERE and HERE) which caught the attention of many people:
Riot Rose is dressed in pink.
“So Riot is a girl????” “It looks like a girl because she wears it in pink and her name is Riot Rose.”
Let’s just say, amid the flood of fan theories based on gender norms, that wearing a certain color does not mean someone is a certain gender. Again, but stronger for the people in the back: THERE IS NO CORRELATION BETWEEN COLOR AND GENDER.
And yet the speculation continues. And we can’t really blame subscribers for asking so many questions about a baby whose sex (which, let’s not forget, ultimately doesn’t matter!) is a disputed detail from the start.
So now we wait for Rihanna to make an official announcement. Mainly because we want to see more photos of this cutie!
These celebrities have the fiercest pregnancy style, and we can’t stop looking at them.
