Rihanna & ASAP Rocky welcomed their first child, she gave birth to a baby boy

Congratulations to Rihanna and A$AP Rocky – real name Rakim Mayers – on the birth of their child. Every Rihanna fan just took it for granted that of course a bad bitch like Rihanna was going to give birth to a baby girl. I mean, she’s Rihanna. Of course she’s going to have a daughter, right? Wrong. Rihanna welcomed a baby boy.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are officially parents … welcoming a baby boy to the world.

That’s right, it’s the couple’s first kid together — sources with direct knowledge tell us he was born on May 13 in Los Angeles — but we don’t yet know his name.

The last time we saw Rihanna was on May 9 in Los Angeles for Mother’s Day weekend when she and Rocky grabbed dinner at Giorgio Baldi.

Wasn’t there some nurse or hospital worker mysteriously tweeting about how Rihanna was giving birth several days ago? I didn’t follow that thread and now I can’t find it. As TMZ says, the baby was born on May 13, so Rihanna and Rocky waited several days to announce it. You can tell that her people are controlling the flow of information too, or at least I can tell. Hardly any of the major outlets are even mentioning the fact that Rocky was detained, arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon just one month ago. The LAPD swooped in as Rocky and Rihanna were flying into LA in April.

People Magazine says that Rihanna and Rocky are already at home in LA with the baby. A source told them, “Rihanna is doing well. They are very excited to be parents. Rihanna is already a wonderful mom.” I hope she is doing well. I also hope we learn the baby’s name soon!

    Congrats to Rihanna! Hope she and baby are doing well.

    Lol she was seen buying so many traditional girly clothes but tummy experts mentioned how her belly was positioned meant a boy.

  3. Watson says:

    I don’t understand why they’d mention asap’s arrest during her birth announcement. Like everyone’s already gleefully tried to ruin her pregnancy with unfounded cheating rumours. Maybe just let this woman have some peace associated with her first baby.

    Not gonna lie, I was hoping for a little mini Rihanna and years of adorable little girl fashion moments. Still, congratulations on a healthy baby!

      @ Snuffles, that would have been wonderful to see!! Mini Ri and her Mom rocking what they are wearing today!! See how Mini Ri dresses one she is old enough to decide!!

      I am happy for both Rihanna and Rocky!! Congratulations to both families as well!!

    Oh thank God. I couldn’t take another belly picture. Like I’ve said about Julia Fox, I’ve seen her abdomen more than I’ve seen my own.

    She really traveled while heavily pregnant. I wonder if she intended to have the child in Barbados but cut the trip short so that ASAP Rocky could deal with legal issues.
    I’m glad that even TMZ didn’t get the story for almost a week, they’re too damn intrusive..

    • Kate says:

      I wonder if all the stress of the legal issues made the baby come early. Or maybe it’s just easier to fly when you have access to a private plane, since your doctor can advise you against flying but can’t exactly force you to do anything. In any case, I’m happy for them and hope they are all doing well! I’m sure this baby is absolutely adorable and I always love the anticipation of finding out what the baby’s name is.

  7. Noki says:

    Well the writers have asked several times for more engagement with other stories,i cant blame them. Why should they waste their time on stories that dont even reach ten comments. As readers you need to be clear on what else interests you.

  8. Watson says:

    I feel the same. At first i could empathize for the slow news cycle cause of corona. The Meghan stories were interesting and it was new. Now everything is pretty predictable (Kate is a stepford wife who copies Diana or Meghan, William is a racist etc) and you will be told off if you say anything remotely negative about Meghan. I still post every so often, but the posters are much more apt to shout people down than they used to be which makes me feel very old because it reminds me of the old message boards like chick click or estronet. Alas, I’m too old to engage in that behaviour anymore. Lol

    Congratulations to them. I hope they are loving being new parents.
