Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have another reason to celebrate as they welcome their second child, as reported on August 21st.
The news was initially brought to light by TMZ, with additional sources sharing the joyful update with Entertainment Tonight. According to these insiders, Rihanna and ASAP Rocky are planning to cherish the early days of parenthood away from the public eye. They’re opting to keep their new baby out of the spotlight for now, without any immediate plans for a public introduction.
This delightful addition to their family comes a year and three months after RiRi gave birth to their first child, a baby boy, in May 2022. The world caught wind of her pregnancy once again during her show-stopping halftime performance at the 2023 Super Bowl in February. Clad in a curve-hugging red ensemble, she surprised her fans by showcasing her growing baby bump.
Since that memorable moment, Rihanna has been showcasing her impeccable maternity fashion sense on various occasions, from red carpets to social media. One remarkable appearance was at the 2023 Academy Awards in March. She confidently displayed her baby bump while dressed in a shawl and a stylish low-waisted skirt, accompanied by A$AP Rocky. The couple’s endearing photos captured a heartwarming moment when Rocky lovingly cradled RiRi’s pregnant belly.
In May, the Barbados-born superstar graced the Met Gala in a stunning all-white Valentino wedding gown adorned with white roses and a train. Reflecting on her second pregnancy, she shared with ET that it’s been a unique experience, quite different from her first one. She noted the absence of cravings and the presence of significant nausea. Despite the differences, she expressed her genuine enjoyment of the journey.
Rihanna also voiced her contentment, sharing, “I feel good, I feel energetic,” as she continues to embrace this new chapter alongside her partner A$AP Rocky.
