Rihanna is going to be a mom!
The “Umbrella” singer, 33, is pregnant and expecting her first child with boyfriend A$AP Rocky, 33.
Rihanna debuted her baby bump while out in New York City over the weekend. In photos, obtained by PEOPLE, she wore an unbuttoned pink puffer jacket that revealed her growing belly, adorned with a gold cross and colorful jewelry, while holding hands with the rapper. In another photo, Rocky kissed the soon-to-be mom on her forehead as they strolled through his hometown of Harlem in the snow.
In an interview with GQ last year, Rocky gushed about Rihanna, calling her the “love of my life.” “She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones,” he told the magazine. “I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”
He also spoke about wanting to start a family with the Fenty Beauty mogul. “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely,” he said when asked if he’s ready to become a father. “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
The billionaire pop icon has also shared her desire to one day become a mom. In a 2020 interview with British Vogue, she said she wanted “three or four” children.
Last month, Rihanna sparked pregnancy rumors with her appearance at an event to celebrate Barbados’ independence, where she was declared a National Hero. However, she appeared to deny the report at the time.
“Haaaaa! Stawwwp! You ain’t come to the first 10 baby showers!” she told a fan who asked if they could come to her baby shower. “Y’all breed me every year dammit lol.”
The couple had been friends for years before their relationship turned romantic following Rihanna’s breakup with Saudi businessman Hassan Jameel in January 2020.
