According to TMZ, RiRi welcomed a baby boy in LA on May 13, which happened to be a Friday. Friday the 13th! How lucky is that?!

While nobody from either Rihanna or A$AP’s team have confirmed the happy news, TMZ’s info is being widely reported as accurate.

At this stage, there is no further information as the new parents remain tight-lipped.

Mum and Dad!

Rihanna established herself in 2006 when the song ‘SOS’ smashed the top of the charts and she quickly became a global music and fashion icon. The Barbados-born showstopper built out her brand to include the now defunct Savage x Fenty fashion label, and her enduring makeup business Fenty Beauty.

Speaking of motherhood back in 2019 at her fifth Diamond Ball in New York City, 34yo Rihanna indicated that it was on the table.

“I’m a black woman. I came from a black woman, who came from a black woman, who came from a black woman, and I’m going to give birth to a black woman.

“It’s a no-brainer. That’s who I am. It’s the core of who I am in spirit and DNA.”

Since the late January reveal that she and boyfriend rapper, A$AP Rocky were expecting their first child together, the star was giving us all the fantastic looks we knew she would.

In March 2022, Rihanna revealed that she was in her third trimester.

In a 2019 interview with GQ magazine A$AP spoke about the idea of children with “the love of my life”, Rihanna.

“If that’s in my destiny, absolutely … I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child.”

While Rihanna has been notoriously tightlipped about her private life in the past, the cat was well and truly out of the bag about her relationship with A$AP after the rapper left no confusion during that interview!

Calling Rihanna both “my lady” and “the love of my life,” the PMW rapper revealed that the pair had been on an incredible “Great American Road Trip,” the previous summer.

“I met myself,” he said of the trip. “Being able to drive and do a tour without feeling like it was an occupation or an obligated job agreement, I feel like that experience is like none other,” the rapper recalled. “I never experienced nothing like it.”

“I would have a very fly child.”

Umbrella singer, Rihanna kept that pregnancy glow up thanks to a new dedicated moisturising regime.

Speaking with Allure, the Umbrella hitmaker admitted that pregnancy had her staying: “More moisturised than ever, obviously!”

The 33yo star credited her own brand, Fenty Skin for her pregnancy glow-up, in particular saying that the “Butta Drop Whipped Oil Body Cream is my go-to.”

Speaking withPEOPLE the mum-tore admitted that “it’s fun” but also “a challenge” to play with fashion while pregnant.

“I like it. I’m enjoying it,” she said in February.

“I’m enjoying not having to worry about covering up my tummy,” Rihanna added then. “If I feel a little chubby, it’s like, whatever! It’s a baby!”

Rihanna referred to her baby bump as her date for the Oscars!


During Rihanna’s third trimester, the parents to be endured a situation that must have been quite challenging for the pair.

33-year-old Fashion Killa rapper, A$AP was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. The LAPD took him into custody on Wednesday, April 20, after he and Rihanna returned home from their vacation in Barbados.

According to a statement from the LAPD, A$AP (real name Rakim Mayers) was charged with assault with a deadly weapon following an alleged altercation in November 2021 where the musician got into a heated argument with an “acquaintance” and allegedly fired a handgun at the victim.

One week later the pair were spotted dining with friends and family in Santa Monica, California, after bail had been posted.
