Later that week, the Grammy winner shared a glimpse of her stomach with her social media followers. “How the gang pulled up to black history month,” the then-expectant star captioned a February Instagram photo taken in her bathroom.

The Fenty Beauty creator received many supportive comments from her celeb friends — including one fromGigi HadidThat caused quite a stir.

“Three angels,” the model, 27, gushed at the time, sparking speculation that Rihanna was pregnant with twins. The Los Angeles native later clarified her comment, writing, “I just caught word of this commotion. I meant rih / rocky / baby lol.”

Rihanna’s pregnancy reveal came nearly one year after Rocky spoke publicly about their relationship for the first time, telling GQ that the makeup mogul was “The One.”

The “Wild for the Night” rapper gushed in the May 2021 interview: “[It’s]The One makes everything so much better. She is probably a million other people’s. I think when you know, you know.”

When asked at the time about having kids in the future, the New York native replied, “If that’s in my destiny, absolutely. I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child.”

As for Rihanna, the Savage x Fenty creator’s dad, Ronald Fenty, thinks that she is going to be an “amazing” mother.

“I couldn’t be happier for my daughter,” the 68-year-old exclusively told Use in February. “I actually jumped for joy when I heard [the news]. She’s always wanted to have kids.”

The lingerie designer had previously “practiced” parenthood with her nieces and nephews, a source exclusively shared with Use at the time, noting, “She can’t wait to be a mom! … She’s embracing her pregnancy body and sees it as a beautiful thing. She’s been taking care of herself and her growing baby. ASAP is attending to her every need, definitely treating her like a princess.”

In April, the “Peso” rapper was arrested in Los Angeles after flying back to the U.S. from a Barbados vacation with Rihanna. He was arrested in connection with a November 2021 incident and later released on $550,000 bail. The arrest was not reported by Rocky or the beauty mogul. The Grammy nominee is expected back in court August 17.

The couple skipped the Met Gala earlier this month. Rihanna has attended the Met Gala in many bold outfits before. The “Love on the Brain” singer was still there in spirit, however: she was immortalized in a hologram statue displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art during the party.
