Rihanna is now a mum of two! On 21 Aug., Entertainment Tonight confirmed that the "Anti" singer welcomed her second child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, who joins their 1-year-old son RZA. TMZ was the first to report the news. "Rihanna and ASAP will spend the early days of parenthood out of the public eye and won't make any immediate plans to debut the new baby," a source told ET.
Rihanna first revealed her second pregnancy — in the most superstar way possible — during her 2023 Super Bowl halftime show performance on 12 Feb. Her rep then confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter. Following the announcement, Rihanna and her baby bump, along with Rocky, were photographed on numerous occasions leading up to the child's birth — from fashionable lunch and dinner dates to the Oscars, CinemaCon, and the Met Gala.
While at the Met Gala on 1 May, Rihanna gave a small window into what her second pregnancy was like, telling ET, "It's so different from the first one. No cravings. Tons of nausea. Everything's different, but I'm enjoying it. I feel good. I feel energetic."
She also reflected on her motherhood journey for her 2023 British Vogue cover story, which was published on 15 Feb., and said she and Rocky became "best friends with a baby" after welcoming her first child. "We have to be on the same page, but we've always kind of had that in our relationship. Everything changes when you have a baby but I wouldn't say it's done anything but made us closer."
