Upon the reveal of A$AP Rocky and Rihanna’s pregnancy, a new Hollywood baby, people have no doubt that they will seamlessly find a place in the 

After years of being friends, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna made their debut as a smitten couple in 2020 at the Met Gala of all places. Although these past two years the couple kept their relationship private apart from their few nights that the paparazzi were able to capture a few photos of them and their adorable matching outfits. It definitely shocked the public when they announced their pregnancy casually on a walk in New York. “The couple was photographed out in New York City over the weekend, where Rihanna debuted her baby bump while wearing a long pink jacket. Her oversized outerwear was unbuttoned at the bottom to reveal her growing bump adorned in a gold cross with colorful jewels,”  remarked People Magazine. 

In regards to fatherhood, A$AP Rocky, 33, said starting a family is “in my destiny, absolutely.” As he put it at the time, “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.” As these two fashion icons have their baby on the way, there is no doubt that the baby will have the cutest clothes. Everyone is very excited about the couple’s new family. The only question is if Rihanna will ever return to music or if this will push her further into her brand Savage Fenty which has branches from clothing, makeup, skin, and lingerie.

As people questioned her future as she enters motherhood she explained, “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,” said Rihanna. “But the only thing that matters is happiness; that’s the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. That’s the only thing that can raise a child truly, is love.”

Since the announcement, the two have been making many appearances. Riri’s pregnancy glow is complimented by her amazing belly-bared fits that show off her pregnancy and how happy the couple is.
