Congratulations are in order for Rihanna and her long-time partner A$AP Rocky, as they become parents for the second time. TMZ reported that the Fenty Beauty mogul gave birth to another baby boy on August 3, 2023.
Rihanna, aged 35, and A$AP Rocky, aged 34, who are already parents to their one-year-old son, RZA Athelston Mayers, born on May 13, 2022, welcomed their second baby discreetly.
Sources close to the couple informed TMZ that Rihanna gave birth to the baby boy on August 3 in Los Angeles, USA. Although the baby’s name has not been revealed, the news outlet reported that it begins with an ‘R’ and that it’s a boy.
The Grammy winner kept her pregnancy news under wraps until her Super Bowl 2023 halftime show in February, where she announced that she and A$AP Rocky were expecting their second child together. Since then, she’s been confidently displaying her baby bump and styling her outfits to embrace her pregnancy.
As for whether the Barbadian singer and the American rapper plan to share photos of their new baby, a source told Entertainment Tonight, “Rihanna and ASAP will spend the early days of parenthood out of the public eye and won’t make any immediate plans to debut the new baby.” No confirmation has been made regarding how the couple intends to announce the baby.
A$AP Rocky and Rihanna’s relationship has only grown stronger over time, particularly as they expand their family. An insider shared with Entertainment Tonight, “Rihanna and A$AP are in a great place right now. They’re enthusiastic about growing their family and are a united front when it comes to parenting. Their bond is even stronger as they have so much fun together and are deeply in love. Parenting together has solidified their special connection.”
The celebrity couple were close friends for nearly a decade before officially becoming a couple in November 2020. Since then, they’ve been seen vacationing together, going on dates, and attending major events like the Met Gala as a pair. Taking their relationship to the next level, they welcomed their first child in May 2022, and now, they’ve expanded their family from three to four members.
