BABY ON THE WAY!
PINK FOR A GIRL? THE HAPPY COUPLE SHARE THEIR BIG NEWS IN A BIG WAY!
THAT’S one way to do a pregnancy reveal! Dressed in vintage Chanel, Rihanna strolled around New York City’s Harlem with boyfriend of two years A$AP Rocky, her bubblegumpink coat open to show off her jewelbedecked baby bump. “They kept the news secret for a while because they didn’t want to jinx things,” an insider tells Star of the Jan. 31 outing. “The big announcement was always going to be something very special.”
Even before they got together, the “Umbrella” singer and the rapper, both 33, were open about wanting children. Rocky called fatherhood his “destiny” and bragged that he’d be “an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad.” And in 2020, Rihanna told British Vogue she could see herself having “three or four” children — with or without a partner. “I feel like society makes me want to feel like, ‘Oh, you got it wrong...’They diminish you as a mother if there’s not a dad in your kids’ lives,” she said, adding, “The only thing that can raise a child, truly, is love.”
She has that and more with Rocky (a.k.a. Rakim Mayers), who has gushed that the Fenty Beauty founder is the love of his life.
“I think when you know, you know,” he told GQ. “She’s
‘The One.’” The insider says he’s been showing his affection by spoiling the mom-to-be rotten: “It’s such an exciting time for them. They’re so in love and can’t wait to be parents together.”
