Take it all in! RihannaAnd ASAP RockyAre adjusting to parenthood, according to a source exclusive Us Weekly.
“They want a big family for sure. Rihanna loved being pregnant and fully embraced her pregnancy body,” the source says, noting that it wouldn’t be a shock if they went for baby No. 2 sooner than you think.
UseOn May 13, the musicians confirmed that they had welcomed a son to Los Angeles.
“Rihanna and ASAP have only shared the baby’s name with close family members,” the source tells Use. “They are keeping it a secret until they’re ready to share it with the world.”
The insider adds that the couple’s inner circle “can’t wait” to meet the newborn.
“Rihanna would love to bring him to Barbados soon to meet her relatives. Right now, they are just spending precious time together with their little bundle of love,” the source says. “They have some help but Rihanna has always said she wants to be hands-on. She’s a very caring person … very nurturing.”
While the “Shut Up and Drive” songstress “is always non-stop working” on Savage X Fenty and Fenty Beauty, per the source, “she won’t want to leave her baby’s side” as she embraces motherhood.
Rihanna and the rapper have been closely linked since late 2019. In May 2021, Rihanna publicly confirmed their relationship. Although they did hit a roadblock when Rocky was arrested at LAX in April after a vacation with Rihanna, they remain together. (Rocky’s hearing for charges in connection with a November 2021 shooting is set for August.)
“Rihanna and ASAP are staying strong as a couple,” the source tells Us. “Their love for each other hasn’t changed. Rihanna is always there to support him, no matter what. They will get through his legal battle and will just come out stronger.”
Rocky spoke earlier this month about fatherhood in an unusual interview.
“I will always remind my [future]Children should never lose their imagination, no matter how old they get. I actually love to watch cartoons,” he told Dazed Magazine. “I want to raise open-minded kids. People who are open-minded and not discriminatory. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically, I just want a cool child with cool parents. Things like diversity and versatility are important, and they’ll be embedded in the household.”
