Rihanna has given birth to her first child. The diva and her partner A$AP Rocky had their first kid, a boy, on May 13th. The news wasn’t made public until May 19, when it was first reported by TMZ and later verified by People.
After being sighted hand in hand on a casual, snowy stroll in New York City, the actress confirmed her pregnancy towards the end of January. RiRi has spent the last few months elevating maternity style by releasing ensemble after ensemble of runway-ready looks at Milan Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, and elsewhere.
I’m hopeful that we were able to redefine what’s considered ‘acceptable’ for pregnant women,” the singerturnedFenty mogul said in an April cover story for Vogue, revealing not only her baby bulge but also her attitude to pregnancy style. I’m not ashamed of what my body is capable of right now. This is an occasion to rejoice. “Why should you conceal your pregnancy?”
It’s not really preparation. I, on the other hand, have no intention of doing so.” I have no idea when I ovulate or anything else. She explained, “We were just having a fantastic time.” “And then it appeared on the test.” I was at the doctor’s office the next morning, and our journey began.”
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky Entered Parenthood
Rihanna endured a lot of turmoil in her third pregnancy, from rumors that Rocky had cheated on her with fashion designer Amina Muaddi (which she quickly refuted as “fake”) to rumors that she was pregnant with twins. Her rapper beau was arrested in April in connection with a November 2021 shooting in Los Angeles, according to the rumor.)
Meanwhile, the Barbadosborn actress assured fans that her longawaited follow-up to 2016’s Anti is still in the works shortly after showing her baby belly. “If my fans waited this long for a lullaby, they’d murder me,” she stated in February.
When the Diamonds singer and her lover were spotted together in New York City at the end of January 2022, the pregnancy was announced. Rihanna wore an antique Chanel jacket with the majority of the buttons undone to show off her baby bulge.
What followed was a constant parade of maternity outfits and fashion moments from the first-time mother, which will undoubtedly go down in history as a cultural milestone. Because Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty brand is so wellknown, she sparked a trend among pregnant celebrities to ditch traditional maternity looks and embrace Rihanna’s belly-on-display look.
