Rihanna and rapper A$AP Rocky have known each other for years. He even opened for her Diamonds World Tour back in 2013. Fast forward to 2020, and the pair officially announced that they were a couple. According to Rocky, Rihanna is “the one.”

In an interview with GQ in May 2021, Rocky explained that his relationship with Rihanna is different in a very good way. He called her “the love of my life.” He added, “I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”

During the GQ interview, Rocky discussed the idea of being a dad one day, and he was open to it. He said, “I think I’d be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad.”

In November 2021, rumors started to swirl that Rihanna might be pregnant. That month, she wore a tight-fitting gown while accepting an award in her native country of Barbados. Some speculated that they may have spotted a baby bump, but it was too early to tell for sure.

Over the next few months, Rihanna tried to hide her baby bump with baggy clothes, but not everyone was fooled. For example, an insider told Page Six that when Rihanna and Rocky ate at Carbone in NYC earlier in January, she was “drinking sparkling water and openly rubbing her baby bump.” The insider added, “At one point she got up and had to maneuver the bump around the side of the table!”

Finally, the last weekend in January 2022, Rihanna felt ready to expose her baby bump for the first time. She walked through Harlem while holding hands with Rocky, who she announced is the father of her child. She wore a pink coat that was only closed with one button, her growing bump proudly on display and decorated with the jewels of several long necklaces.
