Rihanna and A$AP Rocky Are Expecting Their First Child Together

Rihanna and boyfriend A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together.

The couple was photographed in snowy New York City over the weekend, with Rihanna showing off her bejeweled baby bump under a bright pink puffer coat and ripped jeans.

Celebrity fashion photographer Miles Diggs, also known as Diggzy, captured the duo walking together in the streets of Harlem — the “Praise the Lord” rapper’s hometown.  In one of the photos, A$AP is seen kissing the 33-year-old fashion and beauty mogul’s forehead as she shows off a profile of her growing bump.

The news was first reported by People magazine and confirmed by Diggzy in an Instagram post, captioning a close-up photo of Rihanna’s baby bump with the words, “SHE IS!”

Publicists for the two declined to comment to NBC News’ request for comment Monday. Neither parent-to-be has commented publicly on their expected arrival.

The pregnancy news comes two years after the couple first sparked dating rumors when they were spotted out in NYC shortly after her split from billionaire Hassan Jameel. The two dated for three years and broke up in January 2020.

During a May 2021 interview with GQ magazine, A$AP confirmed their relationship, calling Rihanna “the love of my life.” 

A few months later, the two made their red carpet debut on the steps of the Met Gala in September 2021.

“We weren’t even sure if we were going to go, so separately we were planning our looks just to be prepared,” Rihanna told E! News after the event. “We ended up getting ready together and going and I didn’t even realize we were on a carpet together until somebody said, ‘You’re making your debut,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, s––-.'”

Rihanna spoke of motherhood in 2019 at her fifth Diamond Ball in New York City:

“I’m a Black woman. I came from a Black woman, who came from a Black woman, who came from a Black woman, and I’m going to give birth to a Black woman. It’s a no-brainer. That’s who I am. It’s the core of who I am in spirit and DNA.”

A$SAP also spoke of having children in the future, telling GQ: “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.”

There’s only one Rihanna. The superstar joins Access Hollywood’s Scott Evans to dish on her new Fenty Skin collection and recalls her own evolving beauty routine and the moment she fell in love with makeup.
