The second wealthiest female musician, Rihanna has shared a photo of her “perfect baby” on Instagram.
This is after appearing on the latest cover of British Vogue with the child she shares with A$AP Rocky.
Rocky and Rihanna welcomed their son in May 2022 and confirmed earlier this week that they are expecting a second baby.
The announcement came shortly after Rihanna’s 2023 Super Bowl halftime show performance. It was her first live show in seven years.
The cover photo features the family walking along the beach. Rihanna is in the front, wearing a black dress, while hand-in-hand with A$AP, who’s cradling and kissing the forehead of their smiling son.
In an interview with Vogue, Rihanna opens up about how motherhood has brought her joy and changed her life.
“It’s legendary,” the Grammy winner said of being a parent. “It’s everything. You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever … You literally try to remember it — and there are photos of my life before — but the feeling, the desires, the things that you enjoy, everything, you just don’t identify with it because you don’t even allow yourself to get that far because … it doesn’t matter.”
Rihanna told Vogue how her son's birth was beautiful and phenomenal.
“Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts,” she gushed.
She continued, noting she and A$AP didn’t have any assistance with their son for the first couple of days.
“It was just, A$AP and I, as parents and our baby. Man, you’re a zombie for the most part,” she said. “You’re just going through the motions, and even then you’re so paranoid. Because you’re like, ‘They trusted us to come home with this baby? This new life? With us?’”
For her relationship with A$AP, she mentioned that their strong bond of being best friends has strengthened parenthood them.
“We have to be on the same page, but we’ve always kind of had that in our relationship,” she said. “Everything changes when you have a baby, but I wouldn’t say it’s done anything but made us closer.”
The Barbadian singer also shares a solo picture of her son.
The British Vogue Magazine is set to be released in March 2023.
