Pop star has become a business mogul Rihanna caused quite a stir over the weekend in her native Barbados after the “Work” songstress’ appearance caused fans to claim she was expecting her first child. Rihanna, who began dating rapper A$AP Rocky in 2020, has previously said that she’d love to become a mother, so is it true that she’s started her family? We investigate the rumor.
Rihanna’s Barbados Appearance Sparks Baby Rumors
Rihanna was in Barbados this week to celebrate her native country’s independence from the U.K. and attend the island nation’s first-ever presidential inauguration ceremony, which also featured an appearance from Prince Charles. She was also named a Barbados national hero on Monday, November 29. This honor Rihanna, a Robyn RihannaFenty, gladly accepted.
Fans of the singer soon noticed something different about Rihanna’s appearance thanks to footage of the ceremony, and now some are claiming the “Disturbia” singer is pregnant with her and boyfriend A$AP Rocky’s first child.
Tweet Sends the Rumor to The Stratosphere
The rumor was first propagated by a tweet sent by a verified Twitter account. The tweet, sent by a user that goes by The Academy on their verified profile, simply read, “Rihanna is pregnant with her first child with A$AP Rocky.” As of the time of publication, the tweet had over 110,000 likes, 21,000 retweets, and over 38,000 quote tweets. The tweet has over 3,000 comments.
The tweet was posted just days after Rihanna’s Barbados appearance following a day of speculation from fans on social media who used photos from the trip as proof that the singer is expecting. This is a less reputable outlet. like MediaTakeOutThe, have already published stories claiming that the 33-year old has confirmed her pregnancy in recent photos. Below is one photo that could have contributed to the rumor spiraling out of control.
See the Photo for Yourself
Despite the claims from dubious sources, there’s no proof that Rihanna is actually pregnant at this time. In past interviews, she’s said that she envisions having children in the near future. Soon after her divorce from Hassan Jameel (2020), Rihanna told British VogueShe said she was planning to have children in the next ten-years, with or without a partner.
It makes sense that she’d decide to take that next step with A$AP Rocky, who had been her friend for years even before they pursued a romantic relationship, but outside of a few photos, there’s zero evidence that she’s actually expecting at this time. We’ll refrain from speculating further on the matter until either Rihanna or Rocky reveal the news themselves, since that’s the only way we’ll know for sure that it’s true.
