On if she’s releasing new music after a new baby and the Super Bowl news, she was quick to dispel those rumors too. “That’s not true. Super Bowl is one thing. New music is another thing. Do you hear that, fans?” she said, laughing. “The second that I announced this, I said, ‘Oh, my God, they’re going to think my album is coming. I need to get to work.” She released her first music in a while with “Lift Me Up” as the lead single from the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack. The single is the first solo single from the “Umbrella” singer since her album ANTI was released in 2016.
Though keeping the baby’s name a secret, Rihanna revealed her son to the world through the unexpected, TikTok! After keeping her baby away from the public eye for seven months, the “Love on the Brain” singer posted a gentle video of the baby for her first TikTok with the caption, “Hacked.” “You trying to get mommy’s phone? Oh wow…oh wow,” she asked him after exclaiming “Ooh!” On February 15, 2023, British Vogue unveiled a cover shoot with Rihanna, A$AP Rocky and their baby. Though their baby was adorably shown in various photos throughout the photoshoot, the interview still did not name their baby and just referred to him as “baby.” Rihanna gushed about her first days as a mother, “I cannot believe it,” she says, still floored by the experience. “Essentially, from one person I became two. You walk into the hospital as a couple and leave as a family of three. It’s nuts. And oh, my gosh, those first days are insane. You don’t sleep. At all. Not even if you wanted to. We came home, cold turkey, had no one. It was just us as parents and our baby. Man, you’re a zombie for the most part.”
We finally get to know whether the baby looks more like Rihanna or A$AP Rocky, and you get to be the judge if he looks more like his mother or father with his adorable face and emotions. ”Rihanna and A$AP’s little boy is adorable. Not many people have met their bundle of joy yet, but they’ve sent photographs and have excitedly FaceTimed friends with him. He’s a cross between the two of them and is absolutely tiny. In some lights, he looks like A$AP and in others, Rihanna. He has got Rihanna’s eyes!” the insider told In Touch Weekly.
The source also told the publication that Rihanna is so elated with motherhood as “becoming a mom is the best thing that’s ever happened to her. She and A$AP are settling into parenthood at her gated home in Beverly Hills Los Angeles and can’t wait to travel again and introduce their little one in person to loved ones.” The insider also explained that how Rihanna and A$AP love spending every moment with their little one. “They’re so in love. As far as I know, the couple hasn’t hired a nanny yet because they feel it’s important to bond with the baby as a family, especially during the first few weeks.”
