Rihanna and A$AP Rocky announced their relationship in 2021. The rapper lived up to his name and didn’t waste any time — the couple immediately started expanding their family. In May 2022, they welcomed their first son, RZA. Then, in August 2023, they greeted their second son, Riot. Now, people on the internet are speculating whether to expect a third child from the couple. Some sources even claim that Rihanna herself confirmed her third pregnancy.

The couple wants a really big family.

Since Riot’s birth, rumors have been circulating that the singer is pregnant with a third child. A post on X, formerly known as Twitter, claimed, “Rihanna confirmed that she and A$AP Rocky are expecting their 3rd baby,” reaching over 5 million reactions.

However, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have not made any announcement about a third pregnancy. And despite all the hype, the rumor remains unconfirmed. The couple’s most devoted fans attempt to corroborate this theory through past interviews, when the singer said that she wants “three or four” children.

Another source told Us Weekly in September 2023, that Rihanna and A$AP weren’t rushing to expand their family further, “Rihanna loves children, and having a girl would be amazing, but it’s too early to tell if they want more kids. For now, they’re still adjusting as parents of two and loving every minute of it.”

A source close to the couple revealed details about Rihanna’s second pregnancy, “They wanted another baby and were trying, but the pregnancy came sooner than expected, so thrilled to be parents again.”

But the second pregnancy went smoothly, as the singer herself revealed, “No cravings. Tons of nausea. Everything’s different, but I’m enjoying it. I feel good. I feel energetic.”

Her life is more colorful since becoming a mother.

The Barbadian opened up about what’s like to be a parent and how that affected her in the first episode of The Process with Nate Burleson podcast. “I’m living for my son,” Rihanna said. “Everything matters now. You really start to take a lot into account.”

The 34-year-old also explained that her life took a turn for the better after giving birth, and that she thinks twice before taking unnecessary risks. “Skydiving?! You really think about stuff like that — it’s not worth it,” she continued. “Everything is different, life before my son seems very obscure. It’s very small and cloudy, it just got better with him.”

Rihanna fiercely protects her children from media attention, but for a star of her magnitude, it’s challenging to stay hidden from the cameras. During the initial months following RZA’s birth, Rihanna and her partner successfully shielded him from the public eye. However, paparazzi managed to capture images of the little one during a photo session in late 2022. Before these photos could be circulated, Rihanna joined TikTok and shared her own video featuring the youngster.

How motherhood changed her perspective on work.

On 12 February 2023, Rihanna stepped on stage to perform a selection of her hits after being away from music for almost a decade. The stage was none other than the halftime show at the Super Bowl, which has a long tradition of featuring iconic acts from a variety of music’s biggest names. When asked, during the podcast recording, about how she reacted when she got the invitation for it, the singer admitted that she was fearful of how it would go.

“It was so scary because it was kind of unexpected to come back from zero to Super Bowl. That’s kind of nuts,” Rihanna replied. She also wanted to make sure the show would be good enough to warrant the time spent away from her son. “Getting back to anything right now has to feel worth it. Nothing is worthy of your time away from your kid,” she added.

But what took the world by surprise during her Super Bowl Halftime Show was the announcement that she is pregnant with her second child, with the performance beginning with the singer rubbing her baby bump at the start of the first song. RiRi created a new pop culture moment, and since then, fans can’t wait to see how her motherhood story continues to unfold and blossom!

We are joyous to see Rihanna in the role of a happy mother. We believe that the singer will skillfully balance motherhood and her career, just like many other celebrity moms.
