Rihanna and ASAP Rocky are expecting their first child. Over the weekend, the couple was photographed in New York City, where Rihanna flaunted her baby bump while she wore a long pink sweater. She unzips her oversized coat from below, revealing her growing baby belly, adorned with a golden cross and sparkling gemstones.
According to Reports, the lovebirds dined at New York City's posh Carbone restaurant earlier this month and had to be placed at a separate table to accommodate RiRi's growing stomach. "It's pretty obvious that Rihanna was drinking sparkling water and rubbing her tummy in public," a source said. Interestingly, in November 2020, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that Rihanna and ASAP Rocky were dating after years of friendship. Ever since Rihanna split from her millionaire boyfriend of three years, Hassan Jameel, in January 2020, the duo has sparked romantic speculation.
In July, ASAP featured Rocky in its Fenty Skin campaign, and the pair conducted several interviews together to further the collaboration. By September 2021, the couple made their red carpet debut, turning heads as they walked down the iconic stairs of the Met Gala. However, the "Diamonds" singer sparked pregnancy speculation in November when she received the National Champion award at her home in Barbados in a matching dress. She denied that she was pregnant at the time.
As for ASAP Rocky (real name Rakim Mayers), he made no secret of his love for Rihanna, referring to her as the "love of her life" in an interview with GQ in May. At the time, ASAP referred to Rihanna as "My Lady" and said her relationship was unlike any he had. He also expressed his desire to have children with Rihanna one day.
