Rihanna’s new baby seen for the first time
Rihanna’s new baby was born in May of this year. All eyes were on the singer and the child’s father, A$AP Rocky, to see what would follow. The couple has apparently decided to keep their lives and their firstborn sons life private.
Recently, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky were spotted together with their newborn son. On August 14th, they were deplaning their private plane in Los Angeles and entering a jet black van. The couple were dressed casually and a bodyguard was photographed holding their son in a car seat stepping down the stairs.
Rihanna’s new baby changed her perspective
After becoming parents, Rihanna and A$AP Rocky changed their perspective on fame. They have found meaning in privacy. A source spoke with Entertainment Tonight regarding the couple’s new stance on fame.
‘They’re keeping things low-key so they can enjoy their little family.Privacy has become increasingly important to the couple. When it was just the two of them, they’d go out all hours of the day and night and interact with fans. Now, with the baby, they’re a little more protective,” the source said.
Neither Rihanna, nor A$AP Rocky have made any comments about their newborn son. They haven’t shared his name or any pictures.
Stars really are just like us. Since giving birth, Rihanna has decided to take a break from work and to focus completely on her baby. The insider also shared that Rihanna is currently on maternity leave, so we will not be getting the album we’ve been begging for anytime soon. Nonetheless, the superstar will get back to work when the time is right. Right now, the baby is a priority.
“She’s one of the hardest working people out there, and she can definitely have it all,” the source added.
First appearance as a mother
Rihanna made her first public appearance as a mother in July. She stepped out to support her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, while he was performing at London’s Wireless Festival.
The singer wore an all-black look which involved a Prada puffer jacket with feather details and leggings. Her hair was straight and sleek.
The two were later seen in a barber shop. A$AP was getting his hair trimmed and Rihanna was smiling and having chats with locals in the shop. Fans went wild and started posting videos of the superstars all over social media.
During this outing, the baby boy was resting in Rihanna’s Los Angeles home.
“Rihanna is doing well. They are very excited to be parents. Rihanna is already a wonderful mum,” shared a source about the first time mum and her beau.
A$AP Rocky opens up
In an interview for Dazed, the rapper opened up about new faterhood. He spoke about being a parent and about the values he wants to pass on to his son.
When asked what kind of dad he wants to be, A$AP said: “I will always remind my children to never lose their imagination, even as adults, no matter what. I actually love to watch cartoons – I’ve watched like, Teletubbies, Blue’s Clues, Yo Gabba Gabba, Peppa Pig and Baby Shark.”
“I hope to raise open-minded children. Not people who discriminate. And I’m not trying to describe a saint, but realistically, I just want a cool child with cool parents,” he continued.
Rihanna’s new baby name
According to an In Touch source, Rihanna called being a mum “the best thing that’s ever happened to her.” And since she is so protective of her private life and of her sons, she has yet to share his name with the world.
“They’re being very private about their newborn out of concern for his safety and really just want to keep him away from the public eye for the time being,” shared a source with UsWeekly. “They both feel really blessed and couldn’t be happier.”
Where are the nannies
Oddly enough, it seems like the couple has decided to not hire any nannies. They feel it’s “important to bond with the baby as a family.” No word yet on who cares for Rihanna’s new baby when the two are away, but chances are they have family and friends helping them.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky confirmed the pregnancy back in January in a unique way. They stepped out in the streets of Harlem and let the paparazzi take photos of them. Rihanna’s belly peaked from a pink Chanel coat while the rapper held her hand and planted a kiss on her forehead.
Ever since that moment, Rihanna’s pregnancy style was something to be in awe for. She blessed us with an array of daring, bump—baring outfits that gave many women the courage to proudly show their pregnant bellies.
The kind of mother she wanted to be
When you think of mother figures to admire, who comes to mind? Rihanna thinks about Teresa Giudice, star of Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“Teresa from Jersey does not play about her kids. She will flatten you about those kids,” Rihanna explained in an interview with Elle. “And that resonates with me a lot because I feel like that’s the type of mom I’m going to be – psycho about it.”
She even took it further and joked that she would be “worse” than Teresa Giudice: “You talk about my kids, it’s over.”
A$AP Rocky in Rihanna’s eyes
Rihanna’s new baby has a devoted father caring for him. The makeup mogul and singer revealed that after spending time in quarantine, she and A$AP became like family. That’s when she knew she was the one to take home to Barbados for the holidays.
“It was us who were going home. We were going home. My mother has a really good read on people. She observes first and then she’ll move slowly. I guess I’m like that too. There ware some guys that I’ve dated that she won’t even look at to this day. But she was charmed by him from the jump,” Rihanna explained.
In the same interview for Elle, Rihanna shared that she always wished to do things the traditional way, but that did not happen.
“I always thought it would be marriage first, then a baby, but who says it has to be that way. I’m certainly not gonna let that in the way of me being a mom,” she said.
