Rihanna has given birth to her and rapper A$AP Rocky’s second child, a baby boy.
TMZ reported that the duo secretly welcomed their new son on Aug. 3 in Los Angeles. The newborn’s name has yet to be revealed, but reportedly starts with “R” just like his big brother, RZA.
The 35-year-old Rihanna first revealed her second pregnancy during her headlining performance at the 2023 Super Bowl 2023 halftime show in February, kicking off the show by cradling her budding belly in a red outfit, and later confirming that she was expecting baby No. 2. Rihanna joked to British Vogue the following month of the decision to perform while pregnant, “What the heck [was] I thinking?” The Fenty Beauty creator has called motherhood a “legendary” role, gushing, “You really don’t remember life before, that’s the craziest thing ever. It doesn’t matter.”
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have shown glimpses of RZA’s face on social media, but his name remained a secret until this May. The couple, who welcomed RZA in May 2022, haven’t yet commented on their new bundle of joy.
