She proudly bared her baby bump in new PDA photos with her beau.
Surprise, Rihanna has more than love on the brain -- she's having a baby!
The singer and rapper boyfriend A$AP Rocky announced to the world on Monday that they're expecting their first child together. While the two have yet to make any formal statement about the pregnancy, they confirmed the news by posing for photos together in which her growing baby bump is front and center -- bare for the world to see.
The longtime friends reportedly started dating in 2020 and have been spotted out on the town with each other ever since. Speaking with GQ in 2021, A$AP Rocky reportedly started "beaming" when the reporter brought up his other half -- with the rapper calling her "the love of my life" and "my lady."
He added that it felt "so much better" to be in a relationship with her. "So much better when you got 'the One.' She amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones," he said, "I think when you know, you know. She's the One."
In that same interview, he was also asked whether he was ready to be a father.
"If that's in my destiny, absolutely," he answered at the time. "But like, I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very."
After the news started making headlines, Rihanna's famous friends and fans started celebrating on social media.
On Instagram, Nicki Minaj shared one of the photos of Rihanna baring her belly, adding, "Congratulations RIH!!!!!!" She also shared a second photo of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky together, adding a ton of heart-eye and prayer hand emojis.
On her main feed, she also shared the pregnancy photos and wrote, "so happy for you mama 🎀👑 conquered the world already. Given so much. Nothing left to prove. you deserve your own little gift now. Different level of joy that money can’t buy."
"This makes me so happy," wrote Khloe Kardashian in her Story, while Cardi B wrote, "OMG!!!! Congrats @badgirlriri." Bella Hadid also posted, "Holy slay. Congrats to the holy duo!"
"GAH! RIHANNA!!! Best and chicest pregnancy reveal ever!" posted Jameela Jamil to Instagram, while Loni Live shared, "congratulations!!!!!! #auntieloni"
