Rihanna must have love parenthood on the brain. The 35-year-old singer just welcomed her second child with partner A$AP Rocky (born Rakim Athelaston Mayers).

It was revealed that Rihanna gave birth to the newborn in a new report from TMZ. According to the site, the “Umbrella” singer welcomed the baby on August 3, and while we don't have a name just yet, the outlet says it begins with an “R” and the baby is a boy.

This is the second child that Rihanna and A$AP have welcomed in just as many years.

The pair started dating in 2020 and they revealed that they were expecting their first child, son RZA Athelston Mayers, back in January 2022. At the time, Rihanna subtly walked the streets of NYC with her beau, where she flaunted her growing baby bump under a vintage pink Chanel puffer coat.

In May 2022, RiRi gave birth to her first child, and his name was revealed a year later. Now, RZA is a big brother.

But, before that, Rihanna teased that she was pregnant again when she rubbed her belly during the halftime show at Super Bowl LVII. Only hours later, it was confirmed that the singer was expecting, and this made her the first person to ever perform the show while pregnant. (What can't she do?)

A few days later, RiRi confirmed the news herself when she posted a series of photos from a shoot for British Vogue, some of which included A$AP Rocky and RZA. In her caption, the “Diamonds” singer revealed that she was already pregnant at the time of the shoot.

“My son so fine! Idc idc idc!” Rihanna wrote. “How crazy both of my babies were in these photos and mommy had no clue.”

During an interview with Apple Music back in February, Rihanna discussed the difficulties of the work/life balance after having kids, but she added, “When you become a mom, there's something that just happens where you feel like you could take on the world—you can do anything.”

You can do anything, Rihanna. Congratulations!
