Baby on Board! Rihanna is pregnant in photos with her boyfriend A$AP Rocky in New York City on the weekend of January 30-31. In photos taken by Shutterstock and published by People magazine, the artist and entrepreneur wears a long pink puffy winter coat that has only one button closed at the top, with her bare baby bump on display over her low-rise light blue jeans.
In the photo collection, the 33-year-old “Umbrella” singer and rapper walks hand-in-hand, smiling sweetly at herself, with A$AP kissing her forehead in one fell swoop. This would be both Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s first child.
Billboard has reached out to reps for Rihanna and A$AP Rocky for comment.
A$AP Rocky, also 33, confirmed their romance in an interview with GQ in May 2021, after months of speculation that the two were dating. In the interview, he called Rihanna “the love of my life.” The rapper also opened up about whether he would be interested in kids. “If it’s in my destiny, absolutely,” he told the magazine. “I think I would be an amazing, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
Rihanna, too, has spoken about having children. In a March 2020 interview with British vogue, the artist says she plans to have more than one child over the next decade. “I will have children — three or four of them,” she told the publication, noting that she would embark on the journey of motherhood on her own if she didn’t find a suitable partner. “I feel like society makes me want to be like, ‘Oh, you’re wrong…’ They diminish you as a mother if there’s no father in your children’s lives. . But the only thing that matters is happiness, it’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can really raise a child is love.
Recently, the entrepreneur announced that she would be launching physical stores for her popular Savage x Fenty brand this year. The first location – in Las Vegas – opened on January 22.
