Baby happiness! Rihanna and A$AP Rocky enjoying every moment of life as new parents – and they even consider expanding their family.
“Rihanna and ASAP are very open to more kids, they love being parents and starting a family,” a source reveals exclusively in the latest issue of Us weekly. “Having this family together has brought them so much closer together, they are now more loved than ever.”
U.S confirmed that the “Umbrella” singer, 34, gave birth to a baby boy in May. “They rarely leave their baby’s side,” an insider told me U.S about Rihanna and the ‘F-kin Problems’ rapper, 33, three months after welcoming their little one. “They are very private about their newborn out of concern for his safety and actually want to keep him out of the public eye for now. … They both feel truly blessed and couldn’t be happier.”
The source continued, “Rihanna is in no rush to lose the baby weight. She has really embraced her body and feels no pressure to lose it anytime soon. Rihanna is a workaholic, so it’s nice to see her taking the time to thrive in motherhood.”
Since giving birth, Rihanna — who will headline the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show in early 2023 — hasn’t shared any photos of their son or even revealed his name to the public, opting instead to simply enjoy the early months of parenthood to The fullest. “We just haven’t really got around to it yet,” said the “Work” singer The Washington Post earlier this month. ‘We just lived. But I think there’s a certain freedom that comes with just, like, putting it out there.
Rihanna and Rocky, who were first linked in December 2019, have similarly kept their relationship out of the spotlight, with the ‘Sundress’ rapper not confirming their romance until May 2021.[It’s] so much better when you have The One. She probably adds up to a million of the other ones,” Rocky shared GK at the time, describing Rihanna as the “love of my life.”
He added: “I think when you know, you know. She’s the one.”
That’s what a source told exclusively at the time U.S that the pair were a “good match” for each other. “Obviously they are a couple and also each other’s best friends,” the insider revealed. “They joke a lot [and] laugh a lot. They often have private date nights together and love hanging out together.
Shortly after his son’s birth, Rocky hinted that he and Rihanna hoped to have more children in the future. “I will always remember my [future] children to never lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what. I actually like watching cartoons,” the New York native shared Dazed magazine in an interview published in May, shortly after Rihanna gave birth. “I hope to raise open-minded children. No people who discriminate. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically I just want a cool kid with cool parents.”
He added that “things like diversity and versatility are important”, and that he wanted his little ones to grow up with those values ”embedded in the household”.
