Multi-hyphenate pop star Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky have welcomed their first child. According to news agency TMZ that broke the news, its a baby boy and he was reportedly born on 13 May in Los Angeles. No name was given. The couple, together since early 2020, first announced their pregnancy with a heavily photographed stroll through A$AP Rocky’s home town of New York on the last day of January this year.
The fashion mogul and Fenty beauty founder has since made headlines for her trend setting maternity style of sheer lace, crop tops and belly-baring outfits.
“When I found out I was pregnant, I thought to myself, There’s no way I’m going to go shopping in no maternity aisle,” the 34-year-old singer told Vogue Magazine in April.
The power celebrity couple started out as friends and collaborators on musical projects, later this sparked Romance rumors back in December 2020, when they were spotted out together in New York. At the time, close sources revealed that the relationship was platonic.
“She wants to be single and isn’t going to jump into something,” the source said of Rihanna. “She’s hanging out with A$AP Rocky, but she is not dating him.
As time went on, their chemistry seemed undeniable, but the pair continued to keep fans on their toes, that is until A$AP officially confirmed their romance in a 2021 interview with QG, calling Rihanna “the love of my life.” On the topic of fatherhood, A$AP expressed that he had full confidence if that was “his destiny”.
“I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad,” he told the publication. “I would have a very fly child. Very.” When asked by GQ what it was like to now settle down into a relationship, A$AP noted that it was “so much better.”
