Rihanna and A$AP Rocky secretly welcomed their second child earlier this month. According to gossip website TMZ, the baby arrived on Thursday, August 3, in Los Angeles. The name is still a secret, apparently starting with the letter “R.” It has also been reported that it’s a boy. As we previously reported, Rih and A$AP welcomed their first child, son RZA Athelston Mayers on May 13, 2022. Their boy was named after the famous leader of the Wu-Tang Clan.
The last time the “SOS” singer was spotted publicly was in June, looking very far along in her pregnancy, the gossip site reports. Rihanna announced her second pregnancy during her Super Bowl halftime show back in February. While sharing images from her first pregnancy in May, the artist wrote in her caption: “Embracing motherhood like a g, and the magic that this body made! Baby RZA… he in there not having a clue how nuts his mama is, or how obsessed he was bout to make me #maternityshoot2022 #tobecontinued.” Showing off her baby bump for baby no. 2, RiRi hilariously wore an over-sized shirt that reads: “Wear a condom.” With the eyes looking to the side emoji, Rihanna added in her caption, “this shirt is old…”
Rihanna’s most recent public post on her social media features herself wearing lingerie for Savage X Fenty in July. The lingerie brand founder wore the new sheer line, embracing her pregnant body, all the while wearing high heels.
Meanwhile, her partner A$AP Rocky hinted in recent months that he put a ring on her finger. Referring to Rihanna as his wife in another song, titled “RIOT (Rowdy Pipe’n),” the Harlem native hints at already tying the knot. “My wife is erotic, I’m smokin’ exotic,” Rocky raps. A month prior, Rocky performed at the 2023 Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity and dedicated his song “Sundress” to his “beautiful wife,” adding that he loves her.
