The announcement of Rihanna’s pregnancy has shocked her fans. After almost two years of dating rapper A$AP Rocky, the couple is expecting a baby soon.
People Magazine broke the story, posting pictures of the happy pair including Rihanna debuting her baby bump. The photos sent social media into a frenzy as fans rushed to congratulate her.
“I was gagged! I love Rihanna and her music, and her baby is going to be so cute,” said Elijah Ruiz, a Lynn senior.
The “Needed Me” singer has since shared a series of photos on Instagram highlighting her bump with the caption, “How the gang pulled up to black history month.” The child’s gender and expected birth date are unknown.
In the interview with People, A$AP Rocky said, “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very.”
“I love her music. I’ve been a fan of hers since I heard ‘Umbrella.’ It’s so cute how she’s having a baby,” said Maija Dickens, a junior at Florida Atlantic University.
Rihanna has not released an album since 2016 but successfully launched her makeup line, Fenty Beauty. The brand focuses on inclusivity and products cover a wide range of formulas that work for all skin tones.
Fenty Beauty’s best-selling item is refillable lipstick, which allows customers to purchase a case and refills for their favorite color or mix and match different ones. The company also offers long-wear foundation, including 50 different shades.
Rihanna has proved to be an incredible artist, businesswoman, and now soon-to-be mother.
