We first learned about RiRi’s pregnancy earlier this year when People confirmed that she was expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Rakim Mayers (A$AP Rocky). Shortly after the news broke, the singer took a snowy walk in Harlem and wore an unbuttoned jacket with her baby bump clearly visible.
The pregnancy announcement wasn’t a huge surprise to some fans. A few days before she debuted her baby bump, Rihanna was seen at Pastis Restaurant in New York City, where she sported a blue windbreaker and draped a fur shawl over her shoulder (effectively hiding her big news).
In the past, Rihanna has talked about her desire to be a mother, telling British Vogue that she wants three or four children, even if there isn't a partner in the picture. “I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong.’ They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives,” the singer said. “But the only thing that matters is happiness—that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That's the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”
Congratulations to Rihanna on her growing family!
