ASAP Rocky and Rihanna are expecting their first child!
The pair revealed Rihanna's pregnancy with their first child on Monday, sharing a series of images shot together over the weekend in Harlem. Rihanna's baby belly is seen through a long, partially-unbuttoned pink jacket in the photos, which also show the pair holding hands and the rapper planting a sweet kiss on Rihanna's forehead.
Rocky gushed to GQ in May about his new relationship, calling the singer the "light of my life." "So much better," he said when asked how it felt to be in a relationship. It's so much better when you've found "the One." She's probably the same as a million of the others. I believe that once you know, you know. "She's the One," says the narrator. In terms of their relationship progressing, he affirmed that establishing a family is "definitely in my destiny." "I believe I'd be an awesome, incredibly overall fantastic dad," he continued. I'd have a tough kid on my hands.
After years of being close friends, Rihanna and Rocky began dating in November 2020. Rihanna's relationship with Hassan Jameel, her three-year boyfriend, sparked rumors of their pairing in January 2020. Rocky was also included in an ad for her Fenty Skincare line in July.
Last year, the "Diamonds" singer declared her wish to be a mother in an interview with British Vogue. "Ten years?" When asked where she envisions herself in ten years, Rihanna said. I'll be 42 years old! I'll be in my eighties. I'm going to have three or four kids." "Hell, sure, [I'd have kids on my own] even if there wasn't a partner in the picture," she continued. 'Oh, you got it wrong...,' I feel like society makes me want to feel. They criticize you as a mother if your children don't have a father figure in their life. But happiness is the only thing that matters; it is the only way for a parent and a child to have a healthy connection. That is the only way to genuinely raise a child.
